      • Developing reports that will allow the business to measure against the company’s goals and objectives
      • Managing pricing related data and producing associated reports
      • Explaining to others the findings of the reports and process to change any information on the system
      • Ensure that data is thoroughly checked and cross referenced
      • Produce high quality MI and KPI reports.

      The skills and experience that we are looking for in a Business Analyst:

      • Working with large sets of data
      • Advanced level of Excel
      • Building dashboards and insightful reports
      • Great communication skills
      • Ability to explain findings and comfortable with doing this throughout departments
      • Problem solver
      • Identify requirements, issues and strive to deliver improvements
      • SQL would be desirable.

      Along with a great starting salary, the company has an enhanced benefits scheme – including free parking, 25 days holiday (plus bank holidays) enhanced pension and more!  All this, plus the working environment is lovely – where you will be fully supported.

      This is a brand-new role working for a hugely well-established and growing manufacturing company who are looking for a new addition to join their growing team. They’re looking for someone with A-Level standard qualifications as a minimum.  However, if you have a degree, that would be an added bonus.

      Experience wise, you will receive full training and be fully supported by the existing buying team.   We are looking for someone who has wonderful Excel skills (V-Lookup, pivot tables) a quick learner and confident.  Essentially, you’ll be able to hit the ground running, early on.

      As Buyer, you’ll be hugely involved with the organisation’s procurement decisions around the raw materials they source to produce their products. Significant budgets are involved annually and you’ll be given your own individual sign-off responsibility too.

      What will the role as Buyer involve?

      • Research products and recommend which companies the organisation should use as their suppliers
      • Getting quotes and negotiating on the price where possible, and sometimes terms

      • Ensure stock levels are optimised to meet ongoing production needs by using the organisation’s materials database.
      • Liaising with all depts, at all levels.

      You’ll work hand in hand with the product development team and get involved with all aspects of a product’s development, from beginning to end, including the launch phase. A big part of this role will involve developing long-term, trusted relationships with suppliers. You want to be the person they tell first about new products/materials they’ve got in the pipeline too.

      The organisation is becoming more data-driven and procurement decisions you make will be driven by the facts and figures. Therefore, you’ll be someone who can analyse data, identify trends or changes in the market and communicate this to the wider team. You may also get involved with communicating this information to others in the organisation – including the senior management team.

      Throughout the production process you’ll be analysing where improvements can be made.  This could be through costs savings, the product’s design or how its manufactured. You’ll also benchmark suppliers on a regular basis, identifying and flagging where there may be risks.

      What will you be like, and what skills and experience will you have?

      • Hugely organised
      • Great with people as you’ll be working this teams across the organisation, as well a large number of external suppliers
      • Analytical approach
      • Great with Excel
      • A Level or Degree standard of education
