Company: Leading UK Contractor

My client is a rapidly expanding main contractor that are seeking a Junior Buyer to join their procurement team. The company has been trading for over 20 years and grown its turnover from £25m to £140m in the last 3 years. They operate nationally and have an impressive portfolio, working with many blue chip clients on large construction schemes up to £50m in value.

This contractor has a high volume of work and is ideal fit for anyone that likes a fast paced, busy work environment and would suit somebody that is very proactive and commercially minded. This will be an office based role with occasional visits to site when required.

Why apply?

Career progression - This company can offer uncapped opportunities for career progression within the next 12-24 months that most Tier 1 Contractors would be unable to offer in this current market.

Stability - with a full order book into 2020 and beyond this is a stable place to work.

Great work environment - they have just moved into brand new offices and have a relaxed, informal culture that casual dress and open plan working.

Excellent support - all of the senior management team are very hands on so will support you every step of the way.

Key Requirements:
  • Experienced in buying of materials, plant/hire.
  • Construction Industry background preferred but not essential.
  • Must be proactive and commercially minded.
  • Excellent communication skills with the ability to liaise/negotiate with suppliers and work closely with commercial and site teams.
