An excellent career opportunity for a Buyer with some Category Management experience has arisen in Burton Upon Trent.
Buyer – Medical and Healthcare
Burton Upon Trent - Derbyshire

15 years on from their start-up roots, the thriving business is still scaling up, and so they offer a great environment for a creative and passionate individual to really own the work they do in their categories, and drive their own success and that of the business.
The successful buyer will:-

  • Proactively work in a given category, alongside category managers, to develop and execute category strategies.
  • Support procurement of a vast range of categories relating to the specialist field of Medical and Healthcare consumables, equipment and services.

  • Demonstrable experience of being a buyer, in private or public sector.
  • Leading on sourcing projects.
  • Supporting contract management activities across supplier KPI and contract adherence.
  • If you are a Graduate or CIPS qualified then that’s great, but not essential, the most important thing is that you are a passionate, creative, non-transactional buyer.

In return, this young, buoyant business will offer you a salary up to £30,000 (depending on experience), 26 days annual leave, access to healthcare plans, discretional bonus schemes and more.
