Objectives and Key Deliverables

Our client is advising a retailer on reducing the cost of buying low end private label casual shoes and is looking for a procurement expert to work with the team to achieve cost savings. Currently most of the shoes are bought from contract manufacturers with factories in China.

- finding new manufacturing sources outside of China that are capable of exporting to the USA, Europe etc.
- negotiating realistically implementable prices which are better than today’s China-based sources

Procurement experience from a large shoe manufacturer and knowledge of supply chain and lead times of importing into Europe and the US

Experience with sourcing in countries like Vietnam, Cambodia, Indonesia.

Chinese or Vietnamese speaker is preferred

Likely start date is 18th April
