We design, manufacture and market medical devices, exporting to over 120 countries globally and are world leaders in the treatment of Sleep Apnea and Respiratory and Acute Care.
We have a 6 month fixed term opportunity for an experienced, self-motivated Purchasing professional in our Operations team. Being the link between planning and production we need your conscientious, can-do attitude to ensure we are running at the optimum level.
At least 5 years’ experience in purchasing, managing inventory and vendor selection is required. As a result of your purchasing experience you display strong negotiating and problem solving skills in order to react quickly and decisively to grasp opportunities. You could describe yourself as approachable, proactive, forward thinking and results focussed.
In this role you take responsibility for ordering, following up back orders, communicating regularly with suppliers and managing small projects. As you are interacting with many departments and external suppliers, your natural ability and enjoyment in communicating well and building relationships, even under pressure, is always on show.
It would be advantageous to have an International Purchasing or Supply Chain qualification or be working towards a qualification such as MCIPS, CPIM or CSCP. Exposure to electronics purchasing and an understanding of LEAN manufacturing principles/process is an advantage.
