Purchasing Supervisor – Sourcing everything the company would need whether it be for a customer or in house improvements / modifications. There is always something new coming through our door, and I love a challenge. Things I look for in a supplier would be:
- Best service
- Quality of product
- Delivery to suit customers needs
- Relationship which you need to build up over time. I like to get to know my suppliers this way they can get a feel for mine and our customers needs.
We are manned 24/7 so the purchasing department is busy, busy.
Favourite Meal: So many to choose from but Steak & chips would be the favourite, Oh and anything with chocolate. Lots of chocolate !!!!
Favourite Drink: Nice cup of tea goes down a treat, or on a night out Malibu & Coke (by the bottle)
Favourite Team: Stoke City FC & England, are there any other teams as good?
Favourite City: Love the city I’m in
Interests / Hobbies: I love spending time with family, I am married and have two wonderful girls. I love to read crime and football novels. Watching horror and Sci-fi films, I love listening to dance and pop music. When we all get the time we love to cycle and have a picnic along the way, My other love would be cleaning, nothing can never been too clean or organised.
Favourite Saying: “You can’t handle the truth!” – Jack Nicholson (being the purchasing supervisor this saying goes hand in hand)
Hero: The Incredible Hulk, the more you put on him the better / stronger he gets
