Strategic Buyer

Also known as: thought-leader in purchasing

What does your day look like as a Strategic Buyer?

Financial/Business Controller

Roll up your sleeves!


It’s that time of the year again: this week is full of meetings with global suppliers who are visiting our location in Berkel-Enschot. You have prepared these days well and you know exactly which (framework) agreements you want to draw up and conclude. This gives you a lot of energy: managing the growth in the supplier base to achieve the overall goals!

In between these consultations, you sit down with the Supply Chain Manager to work out an alternative sourcing strategy. The large number of automation projects has a significant impact on the organization, and it is up to you to think future-oriented, whereby in addition to price-technical considerations, you also take the sustainability of supplier relations into account.

Your working day is almost over, but not before you have put your new improvement idea on paper. This fits in perfectly with the lean mindset that the supply chain department wants to propagate. Great, this plan is ready for presentation next week.
