We have a good opportunity for a forward thinking Procurement Manager, to join a close knit and very effective and successful team. They are one of the leaders and innovators in their sector within fresh produce. They have been having a re-think about how they should structure procurement going forward. As a result, they are looking for a Purchasing / Procurement Manager to help them deliver this. The business has a very broad requirement and you will be leading the procurement on all of their raw material, packaging and some indirects as well.

The Job:
You will be working very closely with the commercial teams to ensure accurate forecasting and that service levels are maintained at an excellent level.
The role will be very varied and will require you to have longer term and shorter term strategies depending on the types of products required.
You will be managing 2 Stock Controllers who will be key to the smooth running of the function. It is crucial that they are managed and empowered effectively.

The Candidate:
You will have a good understanding of very short shelf life fresh produce procurement. This is a product that you can't store for very long, so organisational and accurate planning is vital.
There is a supportive and experienced team in the business, so you will need to work well alongside them.
Man management experience would be a good skill to have.

If you would like to know more information about his role and have a confidential discussion, then please get in touch with Morten Andresen on 01780 480530.
