Just like a bridge, our mission in Purchasing is to connect internal and external partners to deliver world class results. We build our bridge together on solid foundational values.
Our global Purchasing team sources over $80 billion in products and services annually. We deliver world class results by embracing our values of Belief, Respect, Innovation, Diversity, Growth, and Energy (BRIDGE) as they are the framework for our culture. We believe in a work-life balance and provide team members opportunities for mentoring, learning & development and exposure to senior leadership. FCA takes great pride in fostering an inclusive work environment where employees can leverage strengths, experiences and perspectives.
At FCA, we believe it is the diversity of talent and perspective that allows us to take a visionary approach, to strategically apply new technologies and forge ahead in our industry in innovation and performance. Most opportunities will be global in nature and will involve collaboration with FCA colleagues in Italy, South America and Asia. Our buyers manage all commercial terms for a specific deck of parts and develop sourcing strategies for assigned commodities ensuring that suppliers are capable of meeting FCA quality, technology and supply requirements.

As a buyer you will be expected to manage all aspects of the supplier relationship including contract maintenance, achievement of annual cost savings targets and development of supplier/commodity strategies.
