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.
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.
