Do you want to work in a dynamic and international environment at a company where you as an employee get great responsibility and good development opportunities? Then, it may be you we are looking for!

Now we are looking for an Operational Purchaser within Cables for the production in Järfälla.

Your role

As a buyer within Supply Chain, you have the operational purchasing responsibility to ensure delivery of essentially planned needs to our production, which is characterized by a large project focus. You will be part of a team that purchases material for both prototypes and smaller series production of technically complex solutions. This places great demands on quality, flexibility and rapid action by both suppliers and buyers.

You are expected to be able to handle the purchase of both standard components and the manufacture of complex customer-specific products and you should be able to maneuver between tasks of different character with relative ease.

When Saab works within an industry sector that is subject to export control, you need to understand the purpose and objective of this at an overall level and have an ability to quickly familiarize yourself with, and act upon, relevant regulatory requirements.

Your ongoing tasks will mainly be as follows:

·       Purchase of materials and services based on planned needs

·       Order ordering and delivery monitoring

·       Sales orders

·       Obtain a cost estimate

·       Ongoing feedback to customer managers and managing supplier follow-up

·       Grooming register

·       Flow optimization

Your most important interfaces, except of course the suppliers, will be included in the Planning, Strategic Purchasing, Project Office and Export Control functions. An intensive effort to coordinate and rectify the processes throughout Surveillance is ongoing and within Purchasing there is a close cooperation with colleagues in Gothenburg.

Your profile

Saab Surveillance has undergone a number of changes, both organizational and process and system related in recent years, and has overall a relatively low degree of maturity in purchasing. You therefore need to be able to maneuver with safety and pondus, as well as make correct balances even when all instructions and interfaces are not completely clear.

In order to succeed and thrive with us, we also believe that you are a prestigious and solution-oriented team player who can art to act in the present while maintaining focus on the goal image. You need to be responsible, proactive and have a positive attitude.

You can be a younger driven person with a relevant college degree in the near future, as an older person with a solid purchasing experience in the back. You should enjoy your pulse in a production environment and have a good understanding of what factors govern purchasing in the Supply Chain. You should also be able to independently drive your flow to ensure good delivery precision.

Other qualifications are as follows:

·       Good knowledge of MS Office

·       Good communicative ability

·       Good knowledge of English and Swedish in speech and writing

If you can also check one or more of the following, you are a bit of a dream candidate for us!

·       Experience of purchasing work in the defense, pharmaceutical industry or other highly regulated activities

·       Experience and / or interest in the role of the Export Control Ombudsman

·       Experience of work in the business system IFS

What you will be a part of

You will collaborate with experienced purchasers and professionals in an environment that fosters career development and personal growth. You will be part of the Supply Management Electronics unit. The team you will join consists primarily of Purchasers based in Järfälla and Göteborg. The unit is part of the Business Area Surveillance.

If you aspire to help create and innovate whilst developing yourself in a challenging team setting, Saab may well have the perfect conditions for you to grow. We pride ourselves on a nurturing environment, where everyone is different yet we share the same goal – to help protect people.
