• Contract Management: Manage and review contracts with vendors and suppliers, ensuring compliance with terms and conditions. Monitor contract performance, resolve disputes, and negotiate contract renewals or amendments as required.
• Budgeting and Reporting: Prepare and manage the procurement budget, tracking expenses, and providing regular reports to management on procurement activities, cost savings, vendor performance, and market trends.
• Stakeholder Collaboration: Collaborate with workshop managers, technicians, and other relevant stakeholders to understand their procurement requirements and provide guidance on sourcing options, product selection, and budget considerations.
• Stay Updated: Keep abreast of industry trends, new product developments, and market dynamics related to mechanical equipment, parts, and supplies. Continuously enhance knowledge and skills through professional development opportunities.

Qualifications and Skills:
