Purchasing Administrator

Purchasing Administrator

Location Poole, Dorset
Salary £16000 to £20000

We have the ideal opportunity for a highly organised and professional administrator with experience as a Sales Administrator, Purchasing Assistant, Finance Assistant, Supply Chain and Logistics Coordinator, or similar.

This full-time role is based in our Poole head office. This is not just a job, it’s a chance to build a career within technical and engineering procurement.

Is this a company you can build your career with? 
You will be supported by our 30 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? 
You will be providing administrative support to our Supply Chain function and together with your team you’ll be responsible for the day-to-day procurement and timely delivery of the materials and services to the wider TestLink team. This role comes with a very varied remit, with tasks as diverse as compiling stock reports, processing and expediting purchase orders, credit card reconciliation and liaising with suppliers and colleagues to ensure deadlines and targets are met.

Is this role right for you? 
To succeed in this role, you’ll need great organisational skills, exceptional attention to detail and good communication skills. You will be comfortable phoning suppliers to ask for information and updates, enjoy working with numbers and have a methodical approach. This is a fast-paced role and would suit you if you have a passion for business or engineering and want to help improve business processes and increase profitability. 

If you have a relevant experience, great. If it's from within a finance or purchasing role, even better. If your experience was gained within an engineering or manufacturing environment, perfect! But if not, 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;
