Job Title: Engineering Stores Manager
Reporting To: Client Relationship Manager

IESA are an International Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) organisation managing its customers' indirect material spend via an integrated e-procurement platform. Their client list includes multinational organisations such as Astra Zeneca, Jaguar Land Rover, Carlsberg, Premier Foods and NSG.

IESA have recently won a new, high profile client in the Teesside area and are in the position looking for a strong Engineering Stores Manager to join IESA Ltd.

In 2011 IESA were brought by a private equity firm by the name of Gresham. Gresham's buyout plan is to take advantage of their growth in the outsourcing market, expand into the international market and also expanding them into new verticals.

They have invested £23m for a majority stake. IESA have grown from strength to strength: increasing their turnover by more than double in 6 years; making an acquisition in 2017; and more recently moving into new premises to accommodate their growth!
