Category Leader, Hampshire
An opportunity to really grow your career with a global organisation.
As a bright, ambitious Buyer is needed for this branded, International organisation and in return they'll give you the opportunity to grow and develop within this large International Group. They need an experienced packaging or raw materials buyer to join an environment where your interpersonal skills and drive are as important as your technical procurement skills.
You'll be at the centre of one of the most profitable businesses within the Group and be responsible for the packaging category across a number of different sites. You'll have regular engagement with the Group packaging community sharing information and benefits.
To be a success you'll have great procurement experience across the packaging, raw materials or ingredients categories within a multi-site organisation and an excellent track record for realising value and opportunity. A big focus of the role will be working closely with the NPD teams looking at value engineering and new product launches so previous experience of this would be beneficial. One of your key skills aside from negotiating will be your ability to take ownership of your category and deliver results. A good understanding and previous knowledge of e-sourcing/on line negotiation strategies and excellent stakeholder engagement skills are essential.
