Purchasing Administrative Assistant  

Category Administration  

You have always been keen on the details and that is partly why you chose a career as a Purchasing Administrative professional.

The other reasons are because no matter what you do, you always find yourself being the go-to person. You take the time to learn the industry, department, processes and above all, the team’s needs.

Dabbling in the purchasing arena for three years or so has also built crucial competencies like customer focus and financial intelligence.

Sound like you? Then you may be our next Purchasing Administrative Assistant!

Kent Power is a growing utility construction contractor that understands the value of working in a family environment away from the corporate grind. We offer a team-based work environment in a non-stuffy and friendly office space. Seriously. Think on-site fitness center, working on the covered deck that overlooks the Rogue River here in Rockford, and team workspaces that are adorned with recliners and the option to sit or stand at your desk.

So what will you be doing?

A typical day in this position includes working with our Purchasing team to issue purchase orders and subcontract work authorizations. You will also become an expert in our purchasing system and use this daily to accomplish various tasks.

Position Requirements

Do you have what we are looking for?

Attention to detail and an aptitude to catch mistakes is also critical for this role. You do not have to have utility or construction industry knowledge, but must possess a willingness to learn the industry. Lastly, we need you to value safety, integrity and trust because these are critical to us!

So if this is you, and you’re interested in joining us, apply today so that we can learn more about you!
