Job Description

I am currently recruiting for a production buyer to work within the purchasing department of a busy aerospace manufacturing company.
The role is offered as a 6 month contract with a permanent role on offer
The contract rate will be equivalent to £40K.

As part of the purchasing team you will use your experience of buying engineering parts and raw materials to effectively manage the purchasing of selected commodities.
Key to the role:
Minimum of 3 years production buying experience, ideally within the commercial aerospace industry (as opposed to MOD / defence)
Experience of negotiating with suppliers
Working knowledge of SAP
Able to understand and work from engineering drawings.
You will ideally have worked in an aerospace environment, but this is not essential if you have proven relevant experience of managing a supplier base for a precision engineering company.
It is felt that the role is not suitable for project buyers
