A fantastic opportunity has risen with my Nuclear client based in Chester for a strong Procurement Coordinator.
The job purpose is to ensure that the accurate, effective execution of the initiation of the procure-to-pay process is in line with contractual arrangements with suppliers. This aims to ensure compliance to Group Procurement Policies and enable efficient transactional processing.
The role of Procurement Coordinator will predominantly have two key focus areas firstly the initiation of the Procure to Pay process, specifically the accurate conversion of purchase requisitions to purchase orders and, secondly, support for local site colleagues. This will require communication with the category management team and senior buyers in European operations, as well as contact with business partners and requisitions directly.
A detailed working knowledge of Procurement modules in SAP will be an essential skill, as will a working understanding of key supplier contracts.
