Secure a new product range for one of the UK’s leading electrical component companies. Work with their custom team to imagine and launch new products.
Build a big future
You’ll be part of a new team, building the product offering for a major electrical component business that’s already making significant inroads into a range of markets.
There’s a strong product sourcing aspect to this. We need someone who knows how to source products from scratch without an existing database.
You will have responsibilities for managing the product portfolio as it grows.
If you can combine strong technical awareness with good commercial instincts, this might just be your dream job.
A bit more about the role
The company distributes over 150 products to a range of customers, it’s at the premium end of their chosen market.
When allowed you’ll travel to meet suppliers in China and India.
This will involve identifying applicable products and then making sure they have the relevant industry certifications and listings.
That’s likely to occupy much of your time for the first few months, as the obvious means to build the biggest product offering the quickest.
That’ll take you into technical considerations, costing and pricing, and product marketing – building on your core skills.
You’ll be working for a senior Product Manager, who’ll give you the support you need (as well as the space you want!).
You as the Buyer / Sourcing Manager
We think technical procurement or working as a Buyer would be a great fit for this role, given the technical and commercial content involved.
The only skill we need you to come with is the knowhow of buying products from scratch without a current supplier or vendor list.
What’s important is you have thrashed out commercial deals with a range of companies. You’ll be no stranger to costing and pricing
If you tick these boxes, then please feel free to contact me to discuss the job further.
Buyer Sourcing Managers package
The world’s changed and the company’s open to a remote or hybrid working arrangement, albeit with some office presence during the initial, induction stage.
There’ll be a flexible benefits package, where you can trade benefits to suit your current lifestyle. Standard annual leave is 23 days and there’s a contributory pension scheme.
The prospects are excellent. You’ll be building a new catalogue for a massive new industry, in a role that opens the way to senior commercial positions.
