NEW Buyer role in Co.Antrim, Salary fully negotiable on purchasing experience

Your new company
Due to a growing Supply Chain department, a well established and global manufacturing firm based in Co.Antrim are seeking an experienced Buyer to join on a full time permanent basis. This is an excellent opportunity for a highly motivated and enthusiastic individual to make an impact on procurement strategy, inventory management and bottom line cost savings.

Your new role
Reporting to the Purchasing Manager, you will be responsible for monitoring the procurement process of a set category of spend whilst actively involved with direct price negotiations to ensure the company stays competitive on price, quality, service and sustainability. The Buyer will ensure inventory levels are maintained in line with customer demand and supply, preparing quotations requests and aiding principles of lean supply chain practices. Also, you will liaise with all internal departments such as R&D to outsource new suppliers for specific raw materials and analyse monthly spend.

What you'll need to succeed

Also, you will demonstrate price negotiation with external suppliers to achieve cost savings with excellent communication skills and willingness to work on your own initiative for supplier outsourcing. Working towards CIPS or related supply chain body would be highly advantageous but not essential.
