By close collaboration with the Solid Round Tools organization, you set processes to enable our strategic direction. Your daily work includes lots of interactions, and you take the lead in evaluations, supplier selection, negotiations, and the creation of agreements. You proactively build expertise and gather business insights for the future, and you’re always on the lookout for synergies that gain competitive advantages and investigate how economic trends and shifting market dynamics could affect us. Other essential parts of your mission are to develop an efficient supplier base with sustainability, quality, delivery, and total cost on top of mind, and to keep track of contract compliance and supplier performance.

With a track record including product management, category-driven purchasing and sales or finance, you’ve got what it takes to advise in outsourcing and make/buy evaluations and decisions. You also know how to negotiate around these types of agreements, and you’re used to closing deals and managing multiple stakeholders. Any previous experience from the manufacturing industry and the area of metal cutting would be very beneficial. Your knowledge is supported by a relevant degree within Engineering, Business, Economics or similar, and as we’re such a global player, you also need excellent written and verbal skills in English.
As a person, you’re curious about development and modern ways of working, and you challenge us to think outside the box when you find it necessary. Connecting with people and listening to the needs of our business are key elements in this job, and you build trusting relations and focus on team success. As an experienced purchaser, you take lead in your assignments, and you have a strategic mindset and a doer’s approach. Together with us, you explore the market and proactively investigate our next move in order to bring the most of our supply chain!
