I'm currently working exclusively with a manufacturing business in Leicester; we're looking to hire an Assistant Buyer on a temporary or contract basis for a maternity cover. This business has experienced record growth in recent years, and as such we're looking for someone who also wants to grow, surrounded by passionate, like-minded individuals.
As Assistant Buyer in this successful organisation, you'll be an integral part of the purchasing team working alongside the finance department and dealing with multiple stakeholders ranging from senior managers through to members of the production and technical department.
You'll be working across multiple commodities (direct and indirect) and typical duties will include:
> Raising purchase orders (PO's) and processing order requests

> Negotiating with suppliers and monitoring their performance
> Selecting and implementing new suppliers where necessary
> Managing stakeholders and working to ensure their needs are met
> Ordering stock, planning and managing inventory
You'll also be involved in:
> Reviewing and updating import/export processes
> Raising and maintaining export licenses, documentation packages, invoices
To be considered for this role, you'll need to have buying experience in a manufacturing environment and be able to start ASAP, although short notice periods will be considered. Excellent communication skills are required as you'll be operating cross-functionally and at various levels, and you'll need to be able to demonstrate strong negotiation skills and the ability to be flexible.
This role will pay between £10-13 per hour (circa £22-25k) dependent on experience and will be for a period of up to 12 months. The environment you'll be working in is modern, clean and innovative - it's got free parking, easy access to motorways and the culture internally is a great one. It's a friendly team, you can wear casual clothes on a Friday, and there are stories internally of promotions and temps being taken on a permanent basis. They care about personality and potential - get in touch to find out more! You can click to apply, email your CV, or call me for a further discussion.
