Purchasing

This department has a strategic function (rather than being an operational team), so you would have a real opportunity to help us make a difference in:

  • Creating competitive advantage
  • Improving company margins
  • Giving better budgetary control through market research and accurate forecasting
  • Reducing financial and supply chain risk


About our team

As a department aiming for continuous improvement and developing best value for money, our culture encourages innovation and forward thinking.
There is plenty of autonomy – as a Commodity Manager, you would have the opportunity to devise and drive through improvement projects and cost saving initiatives.
You would also negotiate and produce commercial contracts. Every Commodity Manager produces legally binding, sometimes very complex, contracts and supply agreements.

About working here

The lead buyer responsibility you would take for various categories of spend across Etex Group businesses in the UK, Europe, and the rest of the world means you would have exciting opportunities to travel, network and gain international purchasing experience.
We have a real commitment to training and personal development.
