Purchasing Assistant, Warrington, £25,000

Are you someone with purchasing experience and an understanding of how things are made? We are recruiting for a well-established and reputable family-owned business who are looking to recruit a Purchasing Assistant. You'll undertake a busy and varied role dealing with all elements of purchasing including placing and chasing orders, supplier management and inventory management.

So, what's involved in the role?

If you've enjoyed a career in Purchasing already you will be familiar with the typical tasks that arise. In this role you will be responsible for £2-3m spend per year. You'll manage day to day relationships and place & chase orders to ensure the smooth flow of the supply chain.

The role will be varied so you'll need to utilise your excellent organisation skills and ability to multi-task as the business operates at fast pace and no two days would be the same.

Being a strong communicator (both written and verbal) is essential as you'll be in regular contact with a variety of stakeholders including suppliers, customers and internal business functions.

So… what's in it for you?

Our client is a well-established and respected family business, with fantastic family values. They boast a number of employees who have 10 years' service who value mutual appreciation and hard work. In addition to your salary, there's an opportunity for the business to invest in you and help you through CIPS qualification! The role is office based; Monday to Friday, with a 4pm finish on a Friday, and you'll be working alongside a supportive and positive management team.

What are we looking for?

Ideally, you'll already have some experience working within manufacturing. Have 1-2 years' experience purchasing… but if you are hard-working, committed, and keen to develop your career we'd love to hear from you irrespective!

Finally, you'll need to be able to demonstrate exceptional organisation and communication skills as both will be vital to ensure success in the role.
