I would like to introduce myself as a candidate for the Purchasing Manager position that your company advertised yesterday on the Dayjob.com website.
I have a track record of streamlining procurement processes and procedures.
I am a capable operator who can ensure that costs are managed in line with financial budgets and that best value for money is consistently achieved. I have the ability to ensure the accurate researching and gathering of data to assist in making key purchasing decisions.
What I feel really makes me unique is firstly my ability to mitigate risks to optimize the procurement process, secondly how I can identify opportunities for improvement and thirdly my considerable knowledge of modern purchasing methods.
With my current employer I am involved in everything from cultivating relationships with internal stakeholders to streamline operations. With colleagues I have a reputation for mentoring new starters as well as providing ‘on the job’ training to existing team members and ensuring that all purchasing staff are satisfactorily supported in their day-to-day work activities.
Through my career I have gained extensive experience of determining the standard that any products, equipment, supplies, and materials need to be at before being bought. I have learnt how to lead small teams in a customer-centric setting where deadlines are tight, and the working environment is competitive.
On a personal level I have an honest and integral approach to conducting business. Furthermore, I am a natural relationship builder who knows how to use tact in the negotiating process and when winning favourable aide for my department. As a smooth networker, you can rely on me to never ruffle feathers unnecessarily.
Right now, I would like to join a company that will provide me with intensive training when I join, and will continue to invest in my future career development. The enclosed resume provides a more detailed description of my education, interests, and work experience. Should you find interest in my application, then I will be available for an interview at your convenience.
