This company is looking for an enthusiastic, flexible individual, to join the purchasing department and help to enhance the continually expanding company.

A varied range of responsibilities, working within set procedures, but with the scope to amend and improve processes makes this a challenging role with the opportunity for progression.

Reporting to the Purchasing Manager, you will be primarily responsible for the Office Furniture supply chain.

From product inception, through the sample sign off, ordering process right through to management of logistics and planning warehouse delivery, the successful candidate will be required to take full ownership of the supply chain.

Duties will include:

- Determine requirements, place and expedite all orders for the furniture division
- Create and distribute specification sheets for new products
- Ensuring potential suppliers of new products make samples to our specification and submit samples to our China QC representative for inspection
- Liaise with freight forwarding companies along with the Warehouse Manager and his team to arrange and manage the delivery of containers into stock, providing correct paperwork as necessary
- Communicate and address any quality rejection issues raised with suppliers.
- Carry out product re-sourcing where necessary to improve quality, cost and service
- Preparation of presentations for new products delivered into the business to be distributed to the sales and customer services team to furnish them with specification and functional details

Purchasing experience is preferred, however training would be given to the right candidate to help them develop and grow into the role.
