Engineering Buyer job
Work in Horsham, West Sussex
Career on the bleeding edge of technology
This company is so bleeding edge it's leaving cuts on the tips of my fingers as I write this. I'm not the only one who thinks so either, numerous big businesses are partnering with them to deliver their technology into a variety of market sectors, all because they see the potential in their technology to have a significant impact not just financially but also socially! And guess who's lucky day it is? That's right, it's yours! You are an Engineering Buyer right? Okay cool - then this could be the moment your life changes for the better!
As the Engineering Buyer you will take full responsibility for end-to-end procurement of all things their engineers need to continue producing their amazing technological advances. That means you will need to be able to understand reasonably complex technical specification and transform them into clear RFI and RFQ packs - but that's only the beginning. You will keep an eye on the supplier base to ensure quality and cost efficiency are maintained to an acceptable level, and keep an eye on the market for possible cost saving opportunities too - meaning strong negotiation skills are also a must! The most important thing to note is that this is a dynamic and rapidly changing environment, so if you're motivated by change, growth and development then this is THE job for you.
I'd apply now if I were you, wouldn't want to miss out now would you!
