The Company:
Our Client is a world leading Automotive OEM which is responsible for some of the most iconic 4x4's & Sports Cars produced.

This role requires excellent organisational skills, initiative & an ability to communicate clearly at all levels, knowledge of engineering practice and manufacturing techniques (metalworking, model making, RP etc) would be an advantage as would experience in a purchasing role.
The incumbent
