About the company:

Our client is a large, privately owned Kiwi FMCG company with instantly recognisable household brands. 
About the role:

Reporting into the Purchasing Manager and working with pre-established suppliers, this role will see you working to optimise the purchasing function for your categories. Success in this role will see you working strategically to review the MRP, assess data inputs, review inventory levels and take into account contractual agreements, (e.g. price breaks based on volumes ordered) all before placing purchase orders. Once PO’s have been placed, alongside the logistics team, you will ensure purchased goods arrive on time for production while maintaining high levels of quality.

With support, this role will see you managing supplier performance and reporting on supplier activity/serviceability. These reports will contribute to supplier performance reviews that you will be involved in.

What’s in it for you?

This role is an exciting opportunity for you to step up from your current transactional purchasing role and move into a new challenge where you work strategically to optimise the purchasing function for your categories. You will be joining a well-known FMCG business that manufactures both onsite and with 3rd party manufacturers. This role will give you exposure to many facets of the supply chain and in time, as the business continues to evolve, there will be an opportunity to partake in Continuous Improvement projects (e.g. a new ERP implementation).
