Due to its acquisitions and rapid growth, the need now exists for a dedicated procurement professional to join the Perth team and consolidate suppliers.
Reporting to the Chief Financial Officer, your role will be to review existing procurement and inventory processes, and hone the supplier base, setting up preferred providers.
You will be responsible for negotiating contracts and leveraging the group's buying power for more cost effective strategic sourcing solutions. Going forward you will control and be responsible for organising, coordinating and directing the supply of all goods, materials or services required by the group.
The successful candidate will have substantial experience in a similar procurement role, and will be familiar with inventory management and strategic sourcing. Experience of working within a mining or mining services environment is essential, and experience within drilling or drilling consumables would be highly advantageous.
