Nissan – Purchasing Placement

Nissan are offering a fantastic opportunity of a 1 year purchasing placement. This placement is applicable to all students in their second year, studying any degree discipline!

“We place quality first and source suppliers who can achieve the performance standards that we require, working with them to reduce costs without compromising standards. You will experience a variety of different activities before being allocated your own area of responsibility. This will vary but one thing is certain, your responsibility will develop quickly. The pace is fast to say the least. You will have several projects ongoing at any one time, involvement in data and cost analyses for future activities, supplier visits and continual liaison with internal departments. You will need to display professionalism, credibility and long-term vision.” – Nissan
