My client, an international manufacturer, is looking to recruit a European Purchasing Manager to look after a number of European sites. Looking after both production and non production spend, the European Purchasing Manager will lead a team of category buyers and ensure efficient and cost effective sourcing. This will require developing strong working relationships with key suppliers, lead negotiations, develop route maps to hit cost saving targets as we as overall budgeted spend and also work with wider supply chain and operational teams to develop effective sourcing strategy for future programs and wider global initiatives. To be considered for this role you will need to have extensive buying and supply chain experience gained within a manufacturing environment (ideally automotive), experience of leading a team and adding value at a senior management level as well as international exposure. In return my client can promise a competitive package and promotional opportunities in the future.
