A truly unique and exciting opportunity has arisen for a newly established business, seeking a Purchasing Manager to join an existing function.

The role of Purchasing Manager is to replace the current incumbent (who is retiring but will remain in post until the end of January 2022); as such there is a sense of urgency to appoint someone into the role with a decent handover period to allow them to ‘get up to speed’ and ensure a seamless and efficient transition.

Based from Wantage, Oxfordshire, the role of Purchasing Manager is to provide a comprehensive service managing supplier agreements across General Supplies ($30m spend) with responsibility for the UK, Ireland and the Netherlands (although with the fluid nature of the business this may change moving forward).

Reporting in to a newly appointed Senior Purchasing Manager, this role will spend time split between managing existing supplier relationships (as there is an established and well defined supplier database already in place) as well as identifying opportunities with new suppliers.

The issues that this individual will face are commonplace due to the economic climate on the backdrop of the pandemic; security of supplies, volume, costing etc. and this individual will have to mitigate risk to the business with this in mind.

The individual:

The individual will be a seasoned, experienced, commercially astute Purchasing Manager that is able to hit the ground running, and utilise the current incumbent’s knowledge and experience of the business until they depart.

The individual should have experience of having worked within a matrix structure; will have the ability to engage with staff throughout the business including Senior Leaders; must be proactive and able to bring in ideas and action these rather than rest on their laurels and wait for advice/guidance.

Whilst the role will be based in the UK there will be elements of pan-European travel and as such the Purchasing Manager will have the flexibility to travel as and when required (sometimes at short notice).
