Valeo’s purchasing strategy is simple: to seek out the most competitive, innovative and best-performing suppliers. We then rigorously vet each new supplier using a total quality and innovation approach through our internal processes which include, but is not restricted to, sound financial records, strict adherence to the Valeo Business Partner Code of Conduct and strong contribution in assessment audits. Open-minded people with a high level of problem-solving skills already fulfil important requirements for employees in the world of purchasing. Furthermore, you should be project and team-oriented and enjoy working in an international environment.
In Purchasing, you check and select suppliers, control the quality of purchased goods and contribute to the optimization of supply chains. By working closely with suppliers, you will be able to solve their problems as quickly as possible, thereby increasing the quality and efficiency of the cooperation. You analyse the procurement market and price and skilfully conduct national and international negotiations, always in close coordination with other internal departments. In addition to operational tasks, strategic tasks are also part of your responsibilities in an interdisciplinary working environment.
