You will be joining a reputable and firmly established, national rail and civil engineering contractor in with a company turnover approaching £300m (Group TO £500m+). As a specialist civil, building, mechanical and electrical renewals and maintenance business recognised on contracts and frameworks across the country, you will become part of a renowned brand name and team giving you the opportunity to grow in conjunction with this ambitious and forward-thinking business.

About the Job

You will join a large and experienced team overseeing all business works streams across rail and general civil engineering maintenance and renewals projects and frameworks, providing project and business support services to nationwide project delivery teams. You will provide buying support for subcontract services as well as procurement of materials and external plant buying/procurement and on a day to day basis you will be negotiating with suppliers and subcontractors, carrying out vendor assessments, processing and raising purchase orders and developing / maintaining new and existing supplier relationships.

This is a fast-paced working environment so you should be willing and able to learn quickly, react and be positive in your approach to work. You will be guided, mentored and supplied with the development opportunities and tools required to forge a successful career for yourself in Buying. You will even be given the necessary support to achieve CIPS qualifications if you haven't already got this!

The Ideal candidate

If you are ambitious and career minded with a keen interest in the infrastructure that makes our country tick, then this could be the role and company to give you your next big break in an exciting and booming industry. Are you a Buyer in construction, civil engineering or rail that needs a new challenge and opportunity to work for a company that will value you and provide the career development and professional support? Are you an Assistant Buyer looking for that next step up in Buying and Procurement? - This could be a great role for you - get in touch!

The Requirements

Your chance to shine here is largely down to your character, personality and a genuine interest in the industry which should be reflected in your studies or work experience so far.
