Ambitious Buyer - Global FTSE 100 - Manufacturing - London or Berkshire - £35-£45K + Package

Due to exponential growth, a global FTSE 100 manufacturing organisation is looking to invest in a high-achieving buyer with strong academics. This prestigious blue chip organisation is offering an excellent training scheme and generous remuneration with a rapidly increasing salary.

For the first year the candidate will:

Gain significant exposure to indirect procurement, buying and negotiating with suppliers for raw materials, chemicals and manufacturing products and packaging

Handle multi-million pound spends and receive one-to-one training from leading procurement experts

After this, provided they have excelled within this initial stage, they will gain promotion into an agreed indirect or direct procurement category where they will be heavily involved in the end to end procurement process. This procurement buyer will build rapport with senior stakeholders across the board, challenging them and driving best procurement practices.

In order to succeed in your application for this procurement buyer position you must:

Have an impressive background in either direct or indirect procurement or both

Demonstrate large cost savings that have been achieved through your personal actions within an organisation
