Purchasing Director jobs
A leader in the procurement department of a business, the Purchasing Director is responsible for ensuring that the goods and services a company acquires adhere to the relevant quality expectations, budgetary requirements and time scales.
Depending on the nature of the business, a Purchasing Director will oversee the procurement of assets like raw materials, consumer goods or components. They will work closely with colleagues to create a buying strategy and implement policies as appropriate.
In addition, Purchasing Directors will need to continuously monitor supplies, procedures and contracts, as well as customer buying trends in order to identify places for improvement and instigate effective changes that will benefit the company.
The skills required
Every decision that a Purchasing Director makes will ultimately affect the company's bottom line, not to mention customer satisfaction, so Purchasing Directors will need to be confident in their choices. Meanwhile, keen negotiation skills and a strong understanding of the market will be essential.
Successful candidates should have significant experience and organisation skills are a must. So is an ability to build strong relationships with suppliers and stakeholders.
You will also need to demonstrate your effectiveness as a leader - after all, it is likely that you will be heading up a team. Therefore, duties will include recruitment, training and development.
