Pure are recruiting for a Strategic Buyer to join this leading Essex based business to take responsibility for their own category, build relationships with suppliers and ultimately ensure value for money and deliver cost savings.

The successful applicant will be responsible for

* Being a change agent within the buying team and the wider business
* Strategically rationalising the supplier base
* Delivering savings in line with business needs and objectives
* Creating and developing specific category procurement strategies, supplier selection, assessment, negotiation and management activities
* Establishing best route to market for products and assigned categories
* Negotiate terms of business, and set KPI's and SLA's in order to best measure the suppliers performance
* Reducing costs and improving quality of supply
* Implementing modern procurement tools

This is an excellent opportunity for a delivery focused strategic buyer, motivated by achieving the best quality, service and value for money, whilst meeting challenging savings targets. You will have excellent analytical skills, and have the ability to negotiate hard without jeopardising relationships. Experience gained with retail, FMCG or wholesale businesses is essential for this role, as is experience in managing a multi million pound spend.

The role will be office based, but require some travel to meet with suppliers. You will be working as part of a team, working collectively and individually towards targets which will be rewarded within the bonus structure.

Free car parking, attractive holiday and opportunities for progression are available with this role
