Purchasing Manager | Packaging and Hardware | Lincs
Salary:- Commensurate with experience
About the company:-
We are working with a horticulture business who have seen a lot of growth over the last 4-5 years. As a result of their success, they are looking to strengthen their team with the appointment of a Purchasing Manager who will focus on their Packaging and Hardware requirements. You will be responsible for ensuring the smooth movement of their products from a number of different sources across Europe and the Far East.
About the role:-
You will be responsible for developing the team who work for you, ensuring they have all the skills and support needed to do their jobs effectively. You will be managing a team of buyers and supply chain co-ordinators to ensure things work the way they are supposed to. Working closely with the senior team, you will be developing and implementing the strategic procurement goals for the business.
The ideal candidate:-
You will have experience of working in a Senior Procurement role, ideally with experience of leading a team as well. Horticulture experience isn't essential but fresh / short shelf life experience is important. Understanding the capabilities and limitations of their suppliers is vital in order to keep pushing the boundaries. You will need to be very organised in this role as you will be dealing with a number of scenarios at any one time. Prioritising these tasks appropriately is going to be key to success. When things return to normal, you will need to be able to travel regularly as well.
