I am recruiting for a Senior Buyer to join a customer focused, large manufacturing organisation based in Burton on Trent. This is a hybrid role with a mix of home and office work. As Senior Buyer, you will have responsibility for defining purchasing strategy for a range of goods and services and identifying market opportunities. You will manage the supply base and lead negotiation with suppliers. You will manage contracts and drive cost savings as well as value for money.

You will support and implement commodity strategies, deliver KPIs within agreed time frames and develop and maintain suppliers. You will also negotiate with suppliers and set up long term agreements. You will adhere to processes and procedures and drive these behaviours within the business.

In order to carry out this role, you will need the following skills and experience:
