The name says it all — Purchasing Non Product Related is responsible for purchasing goods and services that are not directly involved with the end product. In this department, a distinction is made between various product groups: Logistics, Marketing & Sales, IT, HR, Maintenance Repair Operating supplies (MRO) and Capital & Investment.
As a purchaser within Purchasing Non Product Related, you deal with a much wider range of products than purchasers in the Purchasing Product Related department. In contrast to many jobs at PACCAR Purchasing Europe, a technical background is not always a requirement in this department. However, experience or skills in the relevant sector or with the relevant product group is important.
As a Purchasing Manager (internally called a Commodity Manager), you are responsible for the entire purchasing process for an assigned group of products. As a purchaser, you are involved in the development process for new goods and services from an early stage and you are the link between external suppliers and internal customers. Amongst other things, you are responsible for selecting suppliers and carry out contract negotiations. This is done by focusing on quality, price and reliability of supply. Based on key performance indicators, you demand continuous improvement from your suppliers. You strive to involve suppliers as early as possible in our development processes. You also continuously undertake market research and benchmarking in order to benefit from new trends in the global supplier market.
You possess a higher vocational or university qualification. NEVI 1 and 2 diplomas are strongly preferred. You preferably have several years' experience in purchasing one of the product groups listed above and have in-depth knowledge of the products and markets. You may also have gained experience in working with these product groups in a different role. You have experience in working internationally and a good knowledge of English and, preferably, German. You have good communication skills and are entrepreneurial.
