A Cardiff based manufacturing organisation require an interim Senior Buyer for approximately 2 to 3 months due to an increase in workload. The Senior Buyer will take the lead in developing and improving supply chain processes and procedures. As this is an interim role, you will need to be an excellent relationship builder and able to quickly judge priorities and workload. As a Senior Buyer, you will have responsibility for supplier planning and liaison, lead times, supplier shortages and negotiation with suppliers. You will also take ownership of standardisation of processes and documentation as well as analysing and working with supplier master data. You will be part of a broader supply chain team, but will maintain responsibility for your own remit. You will need to have previous experience working as a Senior Buyer within a manufacturing or engineering organisation and have good knowledge of MRP/ERP systems.
