Our client is an international food ingredients business. With a long-standing history, their growth in recent years has been impressive, and there is now an opportunity to expand the current team with the addition of a Senior Buyer.
Sourcing on an international level, you will be office based and join a long-standing supply chain team, but you will travel when necessary, mainly to Europe and further afield too if required. Negotiating good prices on favourable terms, you will deal with current preferred suppliers as well as looking to add to the supply base in a constantly evolving marketplace. The focus of the role will be bakery ingredients.
The ideal candidate for this role will be a tough negotiator with proven success in purchasing. A knowledge of bakery ingredients would be highly preferable. You will not be afraid to deal with conflict when your suppliers are not providing the level of service you require; you will also be prepared to travel when necessary and you will have international buying knowledge. A second language would be advantageous but is not essential.
