I have for the last eight years been working in various roles within the supply chain.These include buying, cost engineer and new parts introduction. I have been succesful in all three roles and still wish to work within purchasing for the future. My background is ideal as I have a vey good knowledge of materials and processes within manufacturing.

In the last role I had experience of project planning, managing suppliers and full reponsibility for the project.

For the future I would still like to work within the supply chain, perhaps as a manager of the supply chain or a small team.
