You will act as the main point of contact between R&D, Production and the Procurement function. This newly created position will allow for agile and efficient management, from product innovation through to delivery.


By working closely with the R&D function especially, the Project Buyer will quickly be able to understand potential future sourcing needs across direct materials categories, and ensure that new products in development can be competitively priced due to controlled sourcing strategy.

The Project Buyer will have a wide, basic procurement skillset, with the ability to source, contract and manage suppliers. You will manage operational procurement tasks as and when needed, such as during production launches.
