Procurement assistant | Fresh produce | Spalding

Salary - £25-30k dependent on experience

About the company:-
We are working with a long established and highly regarded fresh produce business. They have a rare opportunity which would suit a recent graduate with a flair for problem solving and who is looking to ultimately make a move into Procurement or for someone with a 2-3 years experience within working within or assisting a procurement function.

The Role:-
You will work closely with the procurement team and take ownership of a cost and supplier review across a number of their smaller suppliers with their ingredients category. The nature of this category is a lot of often high value ingredients but in low volumes. As a result, the category can be a hard one to perform a full review on because the bigger higher volume areas take precedent. You will be tasked with looking at each product and each supplier to optimise the area. This will give you a great insight into the business and a great grounding to progress in Procurement.

The Candidate:-
This role would suit someone with lots of drive and who is self motivated. You will need to be confident enough to go and ask the broader team any questions you need answer, but you will of course be supported as needed. Good analytical skills will be helpful as you will be comparing a range of KPI's and a related degree would definitely stand you in good stead. Experience with retailers would be advantageous.
