Purchasing Assistant Non-Food Consumer Gods

Office Based - North West

Competitive Salary + Benefits

Due to recent substantial growth within one of our most prestigious clients in the consumer good industry, a new and exciting opportunity has become available. As one of the fastest growing distribution and product sourcing companies in the UK, the company now looks to expand and bring in a Purchasing Assistant to work closely alongside the sales team, and assist them wherever it may be applicable.

Our client supplies many of the UK’s major discount retailers along with toy retailers and the grocery multiples. Since their inception, they have built a strong reputation for providing their customers with a bespoke solution that meets their standards and requirements. Leading from the front, their senior management team run a highly successful and fast paced business with the goal of increasing their sales considerably within the near future throughout the UK and Europe.

As a Purchasing Assistant, it will be your responsibility to work closely with the sales team on a day to day basis, with requirements such as placing orders with factories and completing the necessary forms to go along with sales. Being able to oversee the management of the delivery of product is an important part of the role, so previous experience of delivery management would be desired, along with experience of dealing with factories in the Far East, as the majority of imports come from overseas.

A successful candidate will have extensive experience working in a sales environment alongside a sales team and have experience assisting them with the necessary paper work. It would be desired for the right candidate to have experience in the management of delivery as well as some experience dealing with overseas factories in the Far East. The candidate will be coming into a culture that is fast-paced, lively and energetic, so they will need to be able to bring that personality with them to the company.
