The Company
My client is an ASX listed business that has been leading a niche market in the manufacturing space for the last 50 years. With multiple manufacturing sites locally, they have a strong market share of a number of complex engineered products. Due to a restructure of the Procurement Team, there is a new position available for an exceptional Purchasing Manager to join the team.

The Role
Reporting to the Supply Chain manager, you will oversee the purchasing function for 2 manufacturing sites. Your duties will encompass:

  • Managing the purchasing of materials and components to meet customer requirements
  • Building relationships with suppliers to maintain control around delivery, timing, volumes, and pricing
  • Understand the overall purchasing requirements for multiple projects
  • Placing purchase orders to cover all BOM and non-BOM materials
  • Ensure a smooth process through shipping/logistics/freight
  • Communicating with clients & suppliers around any purchasing issues
  • Monitor spend per supplier and be involved in negotiations
  • Process & Systems Improvement is a key project they are looking at
  • Maintain purchasing policies, procedures and process documents ensuring compliance to AS9100 and ISO9001 accreditations

Preferred Experience
The successful candidate will possess 5+ years' experience in a similar role in a manufacturing environment. You will have a supply chain certification or qualification (Degree or APICS).
