Are you an experienced construction buyer looking for a new opportunity? 

Initially based in Launceston but with a planned office move in late 2020 to Plymouth as they continue to grow this is an excellent opportunity to join a company with a strong pipeline of work that can offer strong career progression opportunities.

Working on up to 6 projects across Cornwall you'll support the site teams to deliver much needed housing to the region by ensuring that they have the materials on site to build to programme. Experience working within housing is desirable although not essential, what is important is a can do attitude and an ability to build strong relationships with the supply chain. You'll have the support of national purchasing agreements along with the flexibility to utilise the local supply chain when required.

The successful candidate will be a confident and numerate individual, ideally qualified to HND level or equivalent in a construction related discipline. You'll have experience in a procurement/material scheduling role within a construction environment. Experience using COINS is advantageous although full training will be provided, you should be comfortable using IT systems to administer accounts, manage delivery schedules and effectively manage stock levels.

In return you can expect a competitive package including a car/allowance, life insurance, healthcare, bonus and pension.
