We’re working with a business based in Nottingham who are on the lookout for a Senior Buyer.

It’s a Procurement role that will see you get heavily involved with the front end of procurement - sourcing and setting contracts. With the support of the legal team, you’ll be negotiating and drafting contract terms to protect the interests of the business, ensure best value, and maximise the 2-way relationship with suppliers.

You’ll be networking the EMEA business to understand purchasing needs across multiple categories including HR, professional services, IT, FM, and marketing, and working with existing and new suppliers to source to these needs.

Creative thinking will go a long way. Will it be best to outsource that marketing requirement, or do we get better value by utilising an in-house resource? These are the kinds of questions you’ll be asking.

You’ll be very visible in the business, and if you’re successful at what do, you’ll be getting noticed by the right people. If you want it, progression will happen.

If you’ve studied Law, and have some procurement experience, we’d love to have a chat to you. We’re not fixed on this though. We’re open on the industry sector you’ve worked in, and size of previous employers. The only thing you’ll need is good knowledge and experience of contracts, coupled with some procurement experience.

If you like negotiating, sourcing, contracts, and drafting terms & conditions, chances are you’ll enjoy this.

How to apply: You can apply via this ad and upload a copy of your CV. We’ll get back to you as soon as we can. We appreciate you may not have an up to date CV, but we can work around this. Give us a call at Distinct Recruitment, ask for Joel, and we’ll talk in more depth.

We look forward to hearing from you
