I am Chris from Germany. We are having an eCommerce company near Frankfurt, Germany. For long term partnership, we are looking for a creative, talented, highly motivated and independent-minded sourcing agent. So far we are sourcing all of our products in China. In order to optimize our supply chain and reduce lead time and logistic costs, we are planning to develop and source our products with european manufacturers.
For this challenge we are looking for an experienced part time sourcing agent for daily 2-3 hours (based in Europe) for following tasks:
- gathering information about product characteristics (best material, handcraft, process of production, etc)
- develop and determine together with us the ideal product specifications
- finding manufacturers (no trading companies) who are able and willing to manufacture our product with our specifications (most important task)
- collecting quotations, analyzing them and editing them into spreadsheets to simplify decision making (most important task)
- negotiate best bulk order prices, order quantity and lead time
- negotiate sample prices and place order for product samples
- monitoring the production and organizing logistics (not necessary, but good if experienced)
Our target market is Poland and Czech Republic since those countries are located close to Germany. But also we would like to collect quotations from other eastern european countries like Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Ukraine, Lithuania, Latvia and Turkey.
Our goal is to find reliable factories who can produce products on a high quality level on the lowest price obviously. Thats why we don't ask only 5 companies for quotation, but sometimes up to 50 manufacturers. Lets find together this one manufacturer who can get us the best product with the best price!
Most important thing is that you work in a highly structured manner! Please create well documented lists and spreadsheats. Document everything what you do so it is easy for me to follow and catch up with everything quickly. Our goal is to save time and ressources for other work we have to do...
If you are interested in a long term partnership and willing to work with us, please write a detailed application with your experiences and introduce yourself to me.
Looking forward working with you guys and sourcing outstanding products in Europe,
