TalentTide is delighted to be working with our client on the recruitment of a Buyer.
You will be reporting to the Purchasing Manager directly in this full-time, permanent role. You will work closely with the New Product Development Team and be responsible for all aspects of purchasing, including sourcing new suppliers, negotiating contracts and stock management.
You will need to have extensive experience in purchasing and have worked within a new product development team. You will have excellent communication skills and have a solid working understanding of the Microsoft Office suite. You will also have a knowledge of Incoterms and overseas procurement and be willing to travel both nationally and internationally.
