"An unrivalled opportunity to take your career as a Buyer / Procurement professional to the next level with a leading rail and civil engineering contractor"


South Yorkshire

The Company

You will be joining a reputable and firmly established, national rail and civil engineering contractor with a company turnover of circa �250m (Group TO �500m+). As a specialist civil, building, mechanical and electrical renewals and maintenance business recognised on contracts and frameworks across the country, you will become part of a renowned brand name and team giving you the opportunity to grow in conjunction with this ambitious and forward-thinking business. In recent times, the company has used its repute and solid track record in the rail industry to venture into pastures new and break into working with new clients and industries such as the Environment Agency, Highways England and London Underground to name just a few.

About the Job

This is an unrivalled opportunity to make your way in the industry as a Buyer and procurement professional. You will join a large and experienced team overseeing all business works streams across rail and general civil engineering maintenance and renewals projects and frameworks, providing project and business support services to nationwide project delivery teams. You will provide buying support for subcontract services as well as external plant buying/procurement and on a day to day basis you will be negotiating with suppliers and subcontractors, carrying out vendor assessments, processing and raising purchase orders and developing / maintaining new and existing supplier relationships.

The Ideal candidate

If you are ambitious and career minded with a keen interest in the infrastructure that makes our country tick, then this could be the role and company to give you your next big break. Are you an Assistant Buyer in construction, civil engineering or manufacturing that needs a new challenge and opportunity to work for a company that will value you and provide the career development and professional support you are looking for to progress and achieve your ambitions in Buying and Procurement? - get in touch!

The Requirements

Your chance to shine here is largely down to your character, personality and a genuine interest in the industry which should be reflected in your studies or work experience so far. If you have a CIPS qualification or you are working towards it already then great but essentially all you need to demonstrate is a solid educational background and some (not extensive) experience in a Buying team / function.


As always, the salary on offer is commensurate with experience but you should expect to achieve a starting salary in the region - �20,000 per annum + benefits.
