I am working closely with my market-leading West Sussex-based automotive manufacturing client to recruit an experienced Tendering Engineer / Projects Buyer to join their in-house Procurement Team. This is an exciting time to join the business as they continue to grow due to sustained increased orders and there is the potential to make a real impact within this well respected company.
This business critical role will focus on developing and improving the company\'s track record of winning new business and developing successful bids and tenders on projects for customers. You will be responsible for fulfilling all material requirements for projects and vehicle programmes across the company, with accountability for cost, quality and timely delivery of materials, goods and services required. The successful candidate will deliver effective stakeholder management, both internally and externally, through strategic procurement, supply chain planning and supplier management.
In addition, you will also provide procurement expertise to the company\'s project bidding and tendering teams to support the winning of new business.
Applications are invited from Tendering Engineers, Project Buyers, Supply Chain and Procurement Practitioners who have experience in a strategic leadership role in Supply Chain Management within manufacturing or production companies (i.e. automotive, aerospace, engineering, OEM, or similar).
You should ideally hold a CIPS Diploma (or be actively working towards completing it). Candidates must have excellent interpersonal and communication skills, both verbal and written, and be confident at negotiating. The role will involve liaising with and managing demands from internal and external stakeholders.
This role will mostly be office-based in Littlehampton but will involve some travel to other company sites in Surrey (travel expenses covered) for audits and meetings on occasions, so a driving licence is highly desirable. There will also be career progression opportunities associated with this role, together with a very competitive salary and excellent package.
More information is available upon application.
