Location Poole, Dorset
Salary up to £25000
We have the ideal opportunity for a talented professional with experience as a Buyer, Purchaser, Sourcing or Procurement Specialist, Logistics or Supply Chain Coordinator, preferably from the Technical, Engineering or Manufacturing industries.
Is this a company you can build your career with?
You will be supported by our 28 years of experience and will benefit from the knowledge that has been built up through our growth so far; thriving through two recessions and expanding into Europe and the USA. Like many successful companies in the industry, we know that continued evolution and innovation are vital, so you'll be joining a forward-thinking culture, a place where you can learn and progress, but also be supported in implementing your own ideas.
What will your role be?
This is a chance for you to use your entrepreneurial spirit and innovative sourcing techniques to hunt for those hard to find and obsolete parts. This role comes with a wide and varied remit, with tasks as diverse as sourcing manufactured and engineered parts through to negotiating with financial institutions, and everything in between. You will have the freedom of a vast global supplier base, with the ultimate goal of driving cost reduction.
Is this role right for you?
To succeed in this role, you’ll need good organisational skills, great attention to detail and strong communication skills. You will be comfortable negotiating with suppliers and colleagues alike. This is a proactive role and would suit you if you have a passion for business, an analytical mind and want to help improve business processes and increase profitability.
If you have experience in key areas of purchasing, supplier management and negotiation, great. If it's from within the manufacturing or engineering industry, even better. If you already have a CIPS qualification, perfect! But if you don't, let's arrange a chat and we can discuss how your skills and experience could help TestLink grow.
In addition to success, job satisfaction, opportunities for training and self-development, you'll also get;
- A competitive starting salary of up to £25,000 with regular pay reviews
- 23 days holiday, rising with service, plus all bank holidays
- A range of company benefits including, a company pension contribution, Life Assurance, Reward and Recognition scheme, length of service awards, free parking and more
