Alfreton - Permanent

Posted: 4 weeks ago

Ref: D0016060



There’s a reason you’re reading this job advert.


Most likely you work in purchasing but are not quite content in your current Buyer role.


Maybe you’re not getting the development you want? Perhaps you lack direction and support from your manager?


An Alfreton based engineering business are looking for a Buyer to join their team. They’ve recently relocated operations from London and are growing their local purchasing team.


They have a new Purchasing Manager, James, joining this month.


He’s progressed from a Buyer to Purchasing Manager over the past 5 years, and he’s had some great mentors and managers along the way. Having had this experience first-hand, he’s passionate about being the best manager he can be and will do everything to support your development.


He recently achieved CIPS qualification and wants his team to go through this experience too, so you’ll have the opportunity to achieve this. He’s not someone who studied decades ago and is now out of touch; he’ll understand the challenges and frustrations you have as you study.


Your day job will be working with new and existing suppliers to source and expedite engineering supplies and consumables to support manufacture and product installation.


It’s a fast-paced engineering business so you’ll be pushed, but James will be there to support.


If you’re currently in a purchasing role but know you’re capable of more, we’d love to speak to you. You can either apply via this advert or contact Joel Stevenson at Distinct Recruitment.


We look forward to hearing from you.
