Junior Buyer SACO86684
We are a dynamic hospitality provider with very ambitious yet realistic growth plans. SACO operates the Locke and SACO brands, covering the corporate and leisure markets for accommodation needs across Europe. New ways of travelling and living have supported the growth of the business into the Aparthotel sector and with private equity ownership the company is currently expanding rapidly into key European Gateway cities. Set to experience growth of more than four-fold in revenue in the next 4 years and expanding into several new countries, it is an exciting time for a company that has doubled revenues in the past 3 years.
With the development of processes and systems that accompany rapid expansion, the role and company offer significant personal development opportunities for the successful candidate. It’s a very busy and fast paced working environment that is deeply grounded by our core values of having the courage to Question, Evolve and Be Human.
Working as part of the Finance team and reporting into the Purchasing Manager, the Junior Buyer will take responsibility for the strategic purchasing of services and goods for key sourcing categories required by the operations function of the business with the support and under the supervision of the Purchasing Manager. This will require sourcing of products and services from existing or new suppliers and liaising with suppliers on a regular basis to ensure service level agreements are met. The role will require travelling to European locations including Netherlands, Ireland, Germany and Portugal.
The ideal candidate should be a passionate, dynamic and positive Graduate who is comfortable with change and wants to make a difference to the continuous improvement of the business processes. The Junior Buyer is thus expected to work in a process driven manner which supports the growing role of the Purchasing function in the business and the standardisation of the key Purchasing categories whilst delivering process efficiencies and cost saving. Responsiveness and proactiveness are key attributes required in this role.
Following the implementation of a new ordering system (Concur), SACO’s sourcing is now centralised whilst the responsibility of day-to-day ordering sits with each of the SACO locations. The Junior Buyer is thus expected to work extensively with the Purchasing Manager and various departments including the Operations department (Apartment Managers, Area Managers, Ops Director and Central Ops Team) to ensure the sourcing of strategic goods and services meets the quality standard and it is done efficiently and in a timely manner.
