We’re a Little Different

 

Our mission is clear. We bring to life a healing ministry through our compassionate care and exceptional service.  

 

We don’t believe in jobs at Mercy, we believe in careers that match the unique gifts of unique individuals; careers that not only make the most of your skills and talents, but also your heart.

 

At Mercy, you’ll feel our supportive community every step of your day, especially the tough ones. We’re a team and love working that way. That team is expanding, and we currently have exceptional opportunities to help our communities grow.

Responsibilities and Qualifications

Across all Sisters of Mercy Health System (Mercy) entities, the Buyer has primary responsibility for requisition processing, daily product sourcing, vendor purchase order negotiations, purchase order placement, confirmation follow up, invoice resolution and expediting of purchase orders for products and services for the Mercy Consolidated Services Center (CSC) as well as all mercy entities. The Buyer focuses on the ongoing service and enhancement of a minimally intrusive and customer focused purchasing process. Department members actively promote a servant's heart among their team and all Supply Chain Division personnel. The Buyer will perform all work in accord to the mission, vision and values of Mercy.

 

Qualifications:

 

Each career at Mercy represents unique members of our caring ministry’s “body”, working together for the health and strength of the whole. To achieve our goals, we need all the parts functioning at their best and this requires the specific qualifications that you’ll bring with you:

 

  • High school diploma.
  • One year purchasing and/or health care materials experience.
  • Working knowledge of Lawson Material Management software Preferred.

 

We’ll Support You at Work and Home

 

Our foundations are built on dignity and respect. Modern Healthcare Magazine named us as a “top 100 places to work.” We go out of our way to help people feel welcomed. We offer day-one comprehensive health, vision and dental coverage, PTO, and employer-matched retirement funds, even to part-time employees. We’re proud to provide tuition reimbursement to help you grow and learn new skills.

 

What Makes a Good Match for Mercy

 

Compassion and professionalism go hand-in-hand with us, along with exceptional quality care. Having a positive outlook and a strong sense of advocacy is in perfect step with our mission and vision. We’re also collaborative and are not afraid to do a little extra to deliver excellent care – that’s just part of our commitment. If that sounds like a fit for you as well, we encourage you to apply.
