Description:
Construction Buyer, Central Surrey - £45,000 - £55,000

My client, an award winning, high-end residential builder is looking for a Construction Buyer to join their team at their offices in Central Surrey. A candidate who is highly organised, clear thinking and logically minded is likely to thrive in this role.

This position is a pivotal role in delivering complex and exciting construction projects where the site-based teams rely heavily upon the timely and accurate provision of materials, plant, equipment and subcontractors co-ordinated and managed by this team member.

The candidate will be expected to balance urgent, day-to-day requests alongside pro-active procurement and management of orders for large packages of materials, whilst always closely controlling costs, tracking budgets and ensuring profitability for all orders negotiated. Keeping a cool head and positive approach when dealing with multiple urgent and complex tasks is of high importance.

Experience as a construction buyer and a good understanding of budgets, drawings, specifications and building materials and processes is vital. The candidate must have good IT skills and plenty of experience with spreadsheets, word processing and cloud file management systems (such as Dropbox & Google Docs). A keen attitude toward learning new skills and software, with support from other team members and independently, is expected.

Excellent written and confident verbal communication skills are required. Management, control and development of the company's supply chain are a significant part of this role, and the candidate should be able to develop relationships and rapport with third parties quickly whilst simultaneously entering into negotiations with them. Additionally, the buyer will need to be able to speak directly with architects and consultants to resolve queries and issues with drawings and specifications quickly and constructively.

If interested in this position, please contact Lee Howard on or email me at
