Are you interested in a career within Purchasing? Do you have demonstrable experience in dealing with suppliers or customers? Are you ambitious and hungry to learn how to become a buyer?

If so, I am sure you will be interested in the role I am currently advertising on behalf on my electronics distribution and manufacturing client based in Norfolk.

Due to continued growth, which has been driven by a strong sales pipeline aligned with identifying expanding markets and pursuing successful opportunities, my client are looking to hire and ultimately develop the next generation of Buyer to join their purchasing team.

Initially this role will be a material expediting/purchasing assistant role, with the successful individual spending their time working within the purchasing department dealing with and managing a portfolio of suppliers to the business, calling off orders and deliveries and ultimately progressing to negotiating on prices and quantities. You will be expected to learn about the products, the business processes and sector during this initial period, whilst demonstrating your ability to build relationships and establish trust within the market, as you grow, your role with grow and your earnings will grow. You will gain vital knowledge in purchasing processes and systems, how a commercial business structures its buying and sourcing strategy, and after a development period you will manage a specific group of products within the supply chain process.

Ideally you will have some experience in either materials expediting, ordering or planning, or even have spent time in a supply chain team in a previous role. My client supply into the Technology and Manufacturing sectors, so some knowledge of these areas is preferred, but not essential as all of the training is given on the job - all you need to bring is dynamism, energy and enthusiasm - the rest will be shown. The role needs someone who isn't afraid to pick up the phone on day one and speak with a supplier, so a confident nature and disposition is clearly essential.

Due to the volume of responses I am anticipating for this role, only successful candidates will be contacted
