Interim Contract Manufacturing procurement specialist required - six month contract.

This business is a breath of fresh air in the food manufacturing industry with a truly customer led approach. The focus is on product innovation and ensuring the end consumer is completely satisfied with the exciting products but still hungry for more! This approach along with the strong ethics and values the business holds is reaping its rewards.

The successful candidate will work closely with the planning team on a new and exciting range of products. The role will entail setting up and managing the commercial relationships with new partners and ensuring the internal teams have the correct stock in the right place at the right time. There will also be focus on cost reduction whilst driving availability, efficiency and profitability.

The business is looking for someone who can start immediately or at least almost immediately! This would be for an initial six month period.

This role will suit a procurement professional with excellent relationship building/maintaining ability. Clearly strong negotiation skills are essential but negotiations will be conducted with the company's values-led approach in mind.

Previous procurement experience working with Food Contract Manufacturing businesses on similar projects is essential, as is a committed and positive approach to problem solving and achieving results.

This appointment is hugely important as it will enable the business to launch an exciting and innovative new range to market and grow the customer base.

This is a great time to make your mark on a growing business. Interviews are being held next week so apply now to avoid missing out.
