Operations, 01 April 2019

Your Role

You’ll be working with every area of our business to standardise internal purchase processes and develop a transparent, cost-effective approach. This includes negotiating all aspects of contracts for maintenance or project work, establishing tendering procedures and supporting teams through the full tendering process. From developing improved supplier management processes to full oversight of the entire order process, you’ll ensure we get the best value for money out of all our contracts by developing and maintaining strong supplier relationships.

What you’ll need

You’ll be a highly experienced technical purchaser, with a technical or commercial background in a resilient international environment, such as data centres, building services or engineering production lines. With deep knowledge of buying technical products and components, you’ll have a good understanding of contract law and compliance rules. You’ll also be a strong, commercially-focused negotiator and an articulate communicator in both German and English to C1 level.
