REQ ID: 42252
JOB TITLE: Regional Delivery Buyer
SALARY: £38,000-£45,000
POSTING END DATE: 28/01/2020
LOCATION: Coventry


Beyond Property, Purchasing, HR and IT, more than being part of our Finance or Marketing teams, beyond even Sales and Service, every role in every business area offers unique opportunities to make an impact on the future of mobility and the automotive industry.





A new and exciting space within the business where you can showcase your skills, working within the Body In White and Raw materials area. 


You'll have European responsibility for specific commodities, namely Steel on behalf of Jaguar Land Rover (JLR), utilising your Purchasing experience to analyse, define, and implement delivery actions as a result.


You'll lead the post sourcing activities within a commodity delivery role and look to implement strategy, along with working closely with the Strategic Buyer both in terms of the pre/post sourcing activity but also the performance within the commodity supply base and via KPI management.


You'll have a key role to play in terms of the sourcing activity and namely supplier performance inputs covering a number of key metrics.


You'll also lead the development of the supplier and internal stakeholder relationships to ensure strategic and delivery based alignment. A highly demanding environment where strong data analysis and project management skills are required. The role itself is fast paced and will involve managing different tasks at the same time.




As the Regional Delivery Buyer, you’ll have previous experience or very good knowledge of Purchasing or Supply Chain processes. You’ll possess the ability to combine short-term deliverables with the development of medium- and long-term delivery strategies, and you’ll show the confidence and experience to work independently.


Being a results-driven individual, you’ll also demonstrate patience, tenacity, drive and perseverance along with the ability to work closely with key stakeholders in a collaborative manner. Because of the amount of cross-functional work, you’ll have strong stakeholder management skills and the ability to influence people, whether from across the business or externally. 


Occasional travel maybe required.


JLR considers that this role does not meet the criteria to be considered within the Home Office Shortage Occupation list.  Therefore, JLR will not support an application for visa sponsorship and all applicants for this role must have an unrestricted right to work for an indefinite period in the UK.



Bring all this to the home of premium innovation, and you’ll find the opportunities to further your career with a world-class team, a discounted car purchase and lease scheme for you and your family, membership of a competitive pension plan and performance related bonus scheme. All this and more makes Jaguar Land Rover the perfect place to continue your journey.

Jaguar Land Rover is committed to equal opportunity for all.
