Senior Buyer – Fleet

Coventry

£38,000 - £45,000 plus benefits

You will be part of a team, working collaboratively with other departments and building strong working relationships with stakeholders to identify business needs.

You will be responsible for the procurement and management of Company Cars, Vehicle Maintenance, Accident Cover and everything else that a business needs.

This range of tasks means you could be setting sourcing strategy or delivering strategic sourcing projects one day and awarding contracts the next. You therefore need to be organised, motivated and ready to become an expert in our systems and processes.

Skilled and ready to learn, you'll thrive on running more complex, £multi-million events and influencing stakeholders and colleagues alike.

About you

A degree (or equivalent) is an advantage, but not obligatory. However, solid experience in strategic sourcing and category management is essential.

You should be adept at managing a portfolio of suppliers; developing contracts; and building complex commercial assessment models. Meanwhile, your expertise should cover analytical tools, presentation skills and the principals of project management.

You combine all this with strong communications skills and the ability to work with people across the organisation.

Articulate with good commercial acumen, you can lead negotiations, work with multi-disciplinary teams and build strong relationships. Ideally, you'll be working towards MCIPS qualification (if you don't have this already).
