Operations Buyer (UK site) JJS Manufacturing Vacancies

Posted:09 Jun, 2021

Type: Procurement Roles

Full time - 39.75 hours per week

Electronics Manufacturing is an exciting, fast-paced environment that varies every day. But it’s also a challenging one that requires commitment and dedication. Consistently sourcing raw materials and delivering complex products on-time, in full doesn’t happen by luck. It’s not just a case of pushing a few buttons and hoping for the best. It requires an amazing team with a unique set of skills and a passion for process and control.

We build the electronic ‘hearts and brains’ for complex machines supplied all around the world. Our customers are at the top of their game and the products they design and sell keep the world moving – quite literally in some cases. So, any delay, shortage or damaged piece of material has the potential to stop our production lines and we can’t afford for that to happen. This is where you can help.

We currently have two full-time, permanent vacancies for Operations Buyers to join our team.  You will have buying experience preferably within a manufacturing environment.  You will work closely with your peers to provide support to the UK Purchasing Manager and work closely with other functions to drive procurement operational excellence.  You will be involved in all aspects of the purchase-to-pay process including replenishment of materials for production, expediting, negotiation, supplier delivery and quality issues and other purchasing-based support activities.
