We are currently supporting a well-established and successful Shropshire-based organisation in their search for a driven and ambitious Purchasing Manager. This is a new role to the business so a great opportunity for someone who is hungry to develop themselves and take accountability for the Purchasing and supply chain activities within a growing business.

The Purchasing Manager will be responsible for:

  • Sourcing new suppliers and agreeing terms and conditions
  • Managing supplier performance and development
  • Carrying out effective negotiations on pricing, quantities, lead-times
  • Effective management of cost-centres for projects
  • Monitoring stock levels ensuring sufficient supply of materials for manufacturing
  • Scheduling in material deliveries into site and end customer where required


Skills and experience:

  • This role would suit either someone who is ready to take that next step in their Procurement career into a more senior position, or someone already at Senior Buyer / Purchasing Manager level who is looking to join a business where they will be able to grow further.
  • CIPS l level 4 would be advantageous (but not essential)
  • Commercially savvy with a thorough and diligent approach
  • Experience gained already within raw materials procurement (most sectors will be considered so long as it involves procuring raw materials for manufacturing)
