Job description

International Audio Holding (IAH) is an innovative and growing family business at the top of the high-end audio world. As a producer of very high-quality, award-winning high-end audio products, we only work with the best (technical) parts. These parts are purchased from suppliers all over the world. A conditional part of our growth ambition is purchasing these parts as competitively as possible from the best suppliers. For this reason, we are looking for an independent buyer for this varied position with a lot of personal responsibility; an ideal opportunity for a dynamic procurement professional to develop further on a technical level and on an international stage.

As a technical purchaser at IAH, you will be responsible for the entire purchasing process: the activities extend from the initial quotation and order process to the finalization of the final order in our ERP system (AFAS). Examples of other responsibilities you will be given are initiating and maintaining contact with all our (foreign) suppliers and drawing up purchase contracts. Two of the most important qualities we are looking for in our new buyer are (1) a dynamic and commercial attitude: you like to switch quickly, come up with solutions and negotiate the best deals and (2) skills in the purchasing process : you can accurately process the operational side of the purchase in our ERP system and where necessary make suggestions for improvement to management.IAH's young management team is very open to input and looking for improvements, so a proactive attitude is appreciated.  

At a glance, the most important activities as a technical purchaser:

  • Purchasing the most high-quality technical parts at the best conditions (price, quality, delivery time);      
  • Maintaining contact and selecting national and international suppliers, as well as (proactively) selecting and introducing new suppliers;      
  • Creating, processing and handling purchase orders in our ERP system (AFAS);      
  • Carrying out stock management by means of quantitative analyzes on, among other things, prices, consumption numbers, minimum stocks and forecasts;      
  • Consulting internally with R&D, production and sales to be able to respond to changes;      
  • Thinking along with management about the best purchasing strategy;      
  • Drafting purchase conditions, contracts and securing agreements with suppliers;      
  • Monitoring supplier performance and adjusting where necessary.      

Job requirements

  • At least 5 years of experience as an all-round purchaser;
  • HBO+ thinking level in a commercial/technical direction;
  • Flexible, eager to learn and proactive;
  • Analytical and problem solving skills;
  • Commercially highly developed skills in areas such as: negotiation skills; persuasiveness and decisiveness;
  • Have fun getting the best deal;
  • Affinity with technology, audio and/or mechanics or the interest to learn more about this;
  • Experience with purchasing and analysis in ERP and/or CRM systems;
  • Good command of the Dutch and English language in word and writing.       

What do we offer you? 

  • Dynamic and varied position in which your own contribution and responsibility is stimulated and valued;      
  • Purchase of interesting technical parts for award-winning high-end audio products;      
  • Space for specific courses/training in addition to your daily work;
  • Nice informal working atmosphere within a growing, internationally operating family business;
  • Good salary with associated secondary conditions and pension via the collective labor agreement for Metal & Technology;
  • 1 -year contract with the prospect of a permanent appointment if you perform well.
