As a Senior Materials Buyer you will be responsible for the material scheduling for up to 6 housing development sites at any one time. It’s a difficult role, which is made easier due to various group deals that are in place. Although we are a national developer and have certain house types the buyer must treat every unit individually.
You will report to the Commercial / Technical Director. They will support and develop you in the way Persimmon operate, empowering you to run with projects, but always on hand to discuss areas for improvement. They will give you clear objectives. You will need to learn to be adaptable and strong in your management style with a consistent approach with the site teams and supply chain.
If this sounds appealing to you we will require:
A confident and a numerate professional who has experience as a Buyer with a construction company and can provide take offs from drawings. Someone who is self motivated, asks questions, wants to learn and has a good work ethic. An HND qualification (or equivalent) in a Building related subject is highly desirable, although a good attitude to team working is more important. Someone who can administer systems would be at an advantage and training can be provided on the COINS system. Previous COINS experience is a distinct advantage.
