Purchasing Manager
Would you like to own the purchasing strategy for a company that has been voted one of the top 3 companies to work for in the UK?  Feeling like a small fish in a big pond and ready to take complete responsibility for procurement within a locally owned business that is growing 20% year on year?  Then we should talk.
Your potential next employer is mainly an eComm driven business with a team of 35 highly engaged, ambitious and enthusiastic team.  Creativity is at the heart of the business from both a product and a business perspective and they have a clear strategy to double their turnover in the next couple of years.  You will be part of a team where management recognise that a motivated team is a high-performance team so you can expect ongoing professional development opportunities, suggestion schemes, social and charity events as well as enjoying a bit of craic with the team.
Employees have described the company as having a brilliant atmosphere and a great team where everyone works hard but has fun and their clients are clearly happy with what they do as well with near perfect Google and Trust Pilot reviews so don't just take my word for it!
The company works with suppliers all over the globe and also ships products internationally; over 35% of its business is outside of the UK & Ireland and is as far flung as South America and Asia.  You’ll work with supplier across Europe and Asia to drive profitability & increase revenue through building and managing lasting commercial relationships. This will involve some international travel to visit existing or potential suppliers & also trade shows.
You’ll have a strong track record of managing relationships with international suppliers including management of a significant purchasing budget.  You’ll have experience of implementing 3rd party stock management systems, be comfortable with ERP systems & advanced MS Excel and you’ll have experience of importing containers. You'll also have a proven track record of owning the purchasing function within eComm, retail, interiors or fashion businesses. 
This is a key role for the company and its ongoing success so remuneration package will be competitive and negotiable depending on your experience. 
If you think this sounds like the type of opportunity you can see yourself in, give me a call on 07399481948 or hit apply and I’ll be in touch.
Gillian will be in touch as soon as they have reviewed your application.
