Reporting into the department head, your responsibilities will be varied and will include planning material requirements in line with the production schedule and communicating with suppliers to ensure they adhere to delivery deadlines.

To be considered, you will need the following. Previous experience in a planning/purchasing role within either a manufacturing or engineering environment, have a good understanding of manufacturing principles, be an effective communicator and be analytical in your approach.
