I am currently working with a Loughborough based engineering firm to recruit a Procurement Specialist for their small yet established team. As part of a larger organisation, this Procurement Specialist role is a critical one within a team of seven, where culture is just as important as success. This is a newly developed position created to assist the team as they strategically align the businesses sourcing and supply chain strategy to suit the needs of the organisation which are always altering given the fast paced nature of the industry.
It's an exciting time for the business; recent investment has led to significant growth and this coming year is set to show further development for the business and the individuals within it. New products and strategy are about to be launched - this role will have heavy involvement in this as well as having the chance to add further value.
As Procurement Specialist, you'll be working across direct and indirect spend, ensuring that cost, quality, continuity of supply and supplier performance is managed through analysis of performance against KPIs. This is a role that will allow you to develop your technical and operational skillset, whilst also receiving training and progression in a strategic manner.
To be successful in this role you'll need experience as a Buyer in engineering procurement and a hands-on nature. Being MCIPS qualified or studying towards it would be beneficial, but those with relevant experience and the right attitude will still be considered.
In addition to this skillset, excellent communication skills are a necessity - you'll be operating cross-functionally at various levels, and stakeholder and supplier influence / engagement will be key to success.
For more information, please apply for the role, at which point we can have a further conversation. Your CV will not be sent to our client until this conversation and more detail will be given at this point about the business and the role.
