JCB Group Purchasing are looking for a Buyer to join the team

JCB is growing. With our Hydrogen and E-Tech electric machines, we are meeting the need for greater sustainability and energy efficiency in a changing market—and our order books are at record levels.

Right now, we are looking for new Buyers to help us meet increased demand.

Rewards and benefits

Working with a global leader means your hard work is rewarded with more than just a great salary. Join us and you’ll get:

  •  33 days’ holidays
  • Generous Pension Scheme
  • Private Health Care Scheme
  • Dental Care Scheme
  •  Access to our Healthy Living Centre

Role overview

As a category buyer you’ll be at the business end of what we do in a highly visible role. Your focus will be:

  • Negotiating with suppliers globally and ensuring we are always their top priority
  • Communicating with operational teams and managing escalations from Material, Quality, and New Product teams
  • Wielding your influence to keep the purchasing department top-of-mind with key stakeholders.

About you

Purchasing is a place for outgoing people who are excited by the idea of meeting suppliers (sometimes travelling abroad) to negotiate high value deals. We’re looking for behaviours like:

  • Resilience
  • Adaptability
  • Inquisitiveness
  • Relationship building skills

We are hugely invested in developing talent so—even if you do not have significant experience in a similar procurement role—if you’re the right fit for Purchasing, our internal training programmes can give you the skills you need to thrive in a career with us.

JCB is an equal opportunities employer. We value diversity and welcome applications from candidates from all backgrounds.
