Purchasing and Supply Manager
£Competitive + Bonus + Benefits 
Worcestershire (On Site)
Are you an experienced Purchasing and Supply Management professional looking for a different challenge? Our client, a division of a global manufacturer of interior design products, is looking for a talented individual to lead their supply chain and purchasing team from their site in Worcestershire.
From this UK site, the company manages all the new product development and purchasing for each of the group’s sites worldwide. It sits between all the business units and the manufacturers.
This is a pure purchasing role, so no logistics experience is required. So, as Purchasing and Supply Manager, you will need to liaise with each global site to determine their future demand. Then you will negotiate the best commercial terms possible with the multiple contract manufacturers in the Far East. Plus, your skills in vendor appraisal will also be used to source additional suppliers from Taiwan to manage future demand.
Our client is looking for a talented purchasing and supply manager with prior experience in the manufacturing industry and who understands the nuances of Far East or lower cost country sourcing. With all the customers being internal, there can be a temptation to relax customer-service standards. But you will be expected to provide exceptional customer service as if dealing with external clients. 
You must also have managerial experience as there is a small team to lead. Our client requires degree-qualified candidates who have achieved CIPS Level 4 minimum.
This is an office-based role from our client’s base in Worcestershire, so they will only consider candidates within commuting distance.
