What does it mean to be part of the Procurement & Supply team at McKesson UK? It means being a relationship builder. A product guru. A medicine marvel. Join us, and you could be all these things and more. As part of this newly merged function, you’ll help to either source or supply life-transforming products that will set McKesson and our customers up for success. At the same time, with opportunities to develop and progress your career, you’ll have everything you need to become more than you ever imagined.

About the opportunity

We currently have a fantastic opportunity for a commercially astute individual to join McKesson UK as an Assistant Buyer. You will have the opportunity to support the implementation of the generic procurement activities for McKesson UK, supporting the wider team on achieving financial targets and KPI’s for their categories; whilst at the same time ensuring that all of our stock and inventory management KPI’s are achieved. A key element of this role will involve supporting the relationships with McKesson’s current and future suppliers, building cross functional relationships and working on a best for group basis.

About you

As the Assistant Generics Buyer, you will have previous commercial ‘buying’ experience, ideally purchasing high volume, low value products. To be considered for this role, its essential that you are confident in building strong and sustainable relationships, along with a basic level of account management experience. A strong command of Excel is to be expected.

In return for your hard work, we offer training opportunities and development plans, wide-ranging benefits, flexible holidays and a brilliant work-life balance. We’ll also ensure that you feel empowered to support colleagues and make a real difference in people’s lives.
