Procurement Manager

Scroll to content

We are building a product range that will earn a reputation for the highest quality trusted e-mobility products across the globe. We will both specify existing products and design entire products with novel features. We therefore need to build relationships with manufactures and supply chains to get the best possible quality and the right cost.

Our first products are already being manufactured in China and sold in Europe, but we intend to grow our portfolio and complexity. We therefore need a procurement manager to work with the senior engineering team to build a supply chain strategy then implement it ensuring consistent supply of world class product at the right cost.
