The Hired Guns are seeking an experienced Sourcing Manager to lead all aspects of global sourcing for the nation’s leading public safety apparel and equipment company.
Salary range: $69,000 to $108,000 per year
- Have full ownership of your role from start to finish and the freedom to be nimble and try new things (no micromanaging here!)
- Feel good knowing that you get to outfit first responders and work on products that are helping to equip and protect workers throughout America
- Access tons of growth opportunities at this scaling org at a time when retail is on the decline (but not in this industry). If you’re looking for workplace stability, this is the place.
The Nitty Gritty
The backstory on the company and why they need to hire you!
Are you tired of what it takes to get your ideas through in your current role? This company—the nation’s largest distributor of professional public safety equipment and apparel—can say that their products literally save lives. Not many people can do that. Military, first responders, you name it—the product has to work for them every time.
This position requires expertise in sourcing and private-label management. The role is focused on driving the value proposition of a value-based brand rather than developing new products. In short, this is a really unique opportunity to serve as a key leader within the Merchandising and Inventory peer group, influencing company direction through the management of the product and vendor portfolio.
How you’ll know if you’re a fit…
The ideal candidate should have extensive experience in sourcing and knowledge of factory operations, compliance, product testing, logistics, and Incoterms. While the job allows for remote work most of the time, the candidate must be present in the office when samples are available, which happens about once a month. Fabric and apparel sourcing experience is preferred, and familiarity with international operations is required. Be ready for times when working on a 24-hour clock is necessary due to dealing with global partners.
