Job Details

Adverts for Buyer jobs tend to be quite same-y, don't they? So why should you apply for this one, over the others?

It won't be dull - you would definitely have your work cut out for you. You would need to use your experience in buying raw materials for an FMCG manufacturer and your negotiation skills to help mitigate the rolling price increases that manufacturers are experiencing from their suppliers.

There will be career development to justify what would probably be a horizontal move for you - the team is small and there is the potential for the creation of a more senior role for you in the medium-term. 

There will be trust and recognition for the right person - it's a hybrid role, with the trust for you to work from home circa 2 days per week depending on what is happening in the department on-site. These price increases are a cause for concern in the short-term and the person who gets this role will have an opportunity to cover themselves in glory.

You would be well compensated with benefits on top of the up to £40K basic salary - the pension is better than many blue-chip employers offer, there is a bonus that is regularly paid at 10% of salary, private healthcare and medical, 5 weeks holiday and other perks.

So, if you have experience buying direct materials, and have been using an ERP system in a recent role, then please apply today and I will call you with more info.
