Engineering

The Job

This is a lead role in the company structure but doesn’t have man management responsibility and will be given true autonomy to make key decisions, create processes and to establish supplier relationships. You can expect your key points of contact on a daily basis will be the external suppliers, internal engineers and the MD so you must feel confident at communicating across all levels. This is a newly formed role in a modified structure, they have a mature supplier base currently but the MD is more than open to that being challenged. Duties will be varied and will include things such as general procurement of machined, fabricated components and consumables, sourcing new suppliers and conducting supplier appraisals, monitoring suppliers, generating reports and spreadsheets.

The company

They work with some World famous brands, the majority of which are in the Motorsport industry however, they also supply products into the Aerospace, MOD and Marine industries so as you can imagine quality is of the upmost importance. They have a specially kitted out manufacturing workshop, one that you would be proud to call work, which is conveniently located on the outskirts of Milton Keynes centre. The senior management team are a very hard working and dedicated group, so someone who shares that approach will no doubt thrive in this company.

Experience

Relevant engineering procurement experience and desire to challenge things, those are the 2 must have credentials my client is looking for. Relevant procurement experience in their eyes is someone who is used to dealing with Machine and fabrication shops, Motorsport manufacturers including composite sub-contractors, someone who knows the local sub contract companies and knows who they can rely on to deliver. Naturally being comfortable with an ERP system and Spreadsheets is a given also.
