Job Details

We are working with a large and highly regarded food business who are currently looking to replace their outgoing Packaging Buyer. The role covers a range of sites across the UK, but they have a heavier concentration in the Midlands. The role will be managing a significant budget on their rigid plastics requirements as well as covering some indirect spends as well. This is a great opportunity to work with a very experienced team of procurement professionals and will be a great stepping stone into bigger opportunities.

The Job:

You will be working closely with the Head of Procurement and providing key support to the wider team.
You will be empowered (with support) to go out and improve the costs and / or service you receive from your suppliers.
You will be working across a multitude of sites and getting to understand their individual requirements and reacting to their needs.

The Candidate:

Will ideally have a background in packaging procurement within the food industry, ideally having procured rigid plastics or similar.
Being a team player and driven to succeed is really important.
You will need to be comfortable with travelling within the UK as this is part of the role.
Good negotiation skills are crucial.

If you are interested in this role, please get in touch with Morten Andresen on 01780 480530 for a confidential discussion.
