Direct Procurement Buyer

Location: Coventry (Hybrid Working - 3 days a week in office)

Commutable from Birmingham, Leicester, Derby, Milton Keynes, Burton-Upon-Trent, Rugby, Royal Leamington Spa, Wolverhampton, Walsall

Salary: £35,000 - £40,000 + CIPS Sponsorships + Great Progression Opportunities

To apply, please contact Jack at

My client, a market leader in the FMCG space, have seen their procurement function more than double in size in the last 12 months. Through steady and consistent growth, they have developed a reputation for procurement excellence, and they are now seeking an ambitious Direct Procurement Buyer to join their established team and support their drive towards best-in-class.

Progressing through the procurement chain, especially at junior level, can be slow and tedious. Opportunities to contribute to large scale procurement projects are rare. Through extensive end-to-end procurement exposure and CIPS Sponsorships my client is offering the chance for you to streamline the traditional procurement progression structure and step into any organisation with the backing of one of the UK's most respected procurement functions.

As a Direct Procurement Buyer, you will:

  • Collaborate with the National Procurement Manager to deliver a range of traditional procurement activities - including, but not limited to strategic sourcing, contracting, negotiating, supplier relationship management, and award recommendations.
  • Liaise with pivotal stakeholders to identify the company's needs and support the consequential development of innovative procurement strategies.
  • Identify opportunities for growth through completing thorough market analyses.

Direct Procurement Buyer requirements:

  • Strong exposure to end-to-end procurement, with experience engaging with stakeholders and negotiating with suppliers.
  • Good academic background, having studied to A-Level standard.

This is a hybrid role, where you will be based 3 days a week (or as many more as you prefer) at their headquarters in Coventry, and the rest from home.
