A large print and packaging group with offices in West Yorkshire is looking for a buyer to not only purchase outside work but also other products for the business. Candidates can either be in a role dedicated to buying or in production control which incorporates an element of buying.

You will leverage your industry knowledge and networking skills to build supplier relationships & managing contracts with key suppliers to drive best possible results. We are looking for someone who stands out from the crowd in terms of their communication and interpersonal skills. Building sustainable relationships with suppliers will be key to not only making your mark in this role, but in the company as a whole.

Such exemplary communication skills will also come into hand with liaising internally, as you will be working closely with sales, product marketing, design and production teams.

Candidates negotiation skills must be second-to-none, as it will be the buyer’s duty to ensure all materials are purchased at the most competitive price and delivery, and quality & service delivered by suppliers meet the required standards for all projects. You will also be an organised individual, responsible for end to end associated administration.
