South Wales Jobs

We are looking for a Senior Buyer to join an established and growing car parts supplier based just outside Caerphilly. They have been in operation for over 60 years and are global leaders in their field.

This is an exciting role that puts you in the driving seat of supplier relationships, in which you will act as second in demand to the Purchasing Manager. We are looking for someone to hit the ground running and have a strong analytical approach to ensuring stock is ordered in line with projected sales, building key relationships with suppliers, managing overseas schedules, controlling spend, and coping with an (at times) demanding workload.

Typical responsibilities will include:

– Analysis and ordering of stock lines based on part profile and key metrics

– Ensuring orders are placed based on customer demand in the system

– Liaising with suppliers on confirmed delivery dates and overdue lines and ensuring systems are accurate

– Reviewing live order management of purchase orders

– Ensuring accuracy of quantities delivered and addressing discrepancies

– Overview of reject stock prior to placing orders

– Management of ticketing system in a timely manner

– Management of supplier cost price files including discussing price breaks

– Regular scheduled calls with suppliers with actions

– Financial management alongside Finance department

You will also be responsible for supporting the two Junior Buyers in the Purchasing Manager's absence. So ideally you will be a confident decision maker, and happy to take control at times when needed. In addition you will be organised, proactive and willing to go the extra mile when needed. Somebody with prior experience in a similar role would be advantageous.
