Packaging & Indirects Buyer

You've heard the phrase Blank Canvass, well this is a role without even the canvass.

Until you arrive.

With your purchasing skills finely tuned and CIPS certificate tucked nicely away in your folder, you're ready to apply all of this to a shiny new role.

This is that, brand new, a neglected category, often overlooked as insignificant spend in favour of the more popular "Raw Materials", but holy macaroni that means you can run wild and free.

You will need to establish your starting point with a top to toe review of all spend resulting in re-tendering all packaging and a thorough review of all indirect spend. You will set up preferred suppliers, trading discounts, contractual terms, supplier scorecards the list goes on, but you can do this, you've done it before.

And if that doesn't keep you busy let's not forget to save the environment. Plastic reduction projects aren't going to happen without you, you're the one buying the stuff!

The role is split across two sites in the North West, both easily accessible from any Cheshire, Lancashire, Merseyside location and the majority of suppliers are UK based too. If you are interested so far then we would love to hear from you. Give us a call, if you have a CV that's ready to go, great then send that, but don't worry at this stage we can just have a chat.
