A supply chain procurement engineer is required to work on ‘should cost’ initiatives for our client, a manufacturing company based in West Birmingham / Wolverhampton.

The focus is on driving added value / value engineering (AV / VE) initiatives with the supplier base in order to enable cost reduction.

Experience within manufacturing procurement and supply chain is a must and ideally you will be qualified to degree level within an engineering discipline. Experience of lean manufacturing, process improvement, supplier negotiation and general cost reduction initiatives and projects within a procurement and cost reduction setting is a must. A work history of manufacturing processes such as die casting, press work, assembly & finishing etc. would be beneficial.

The position involves intermittent travel to China to liaise with the suppliers and assist with cost reduction initiatives. The ability to speak a common Chinese language such as Mandarin would be beneficial but is not a pre requisite.

Salary is up to £45,000 basic plus a package. For an informal discussion please contact Adrian Woolley at REED Procurement and Supply Chain on 0116 2495560 and email a CV to ady.woolley@reedglobal.com
