Are you hiring an Expeditor or Purchasing Coordinator for your interior design business. Use this job description to make sure you have listed their duties and have a well conceived description of their role. This is a key component of a proper orientation and will determine how much respect they have for you, their role and your company.
This document is best coupled with all the other business materials in the Expeditor category as well as the CODE OF CONDUCT document in the Company Identity category.
I recommend for small firms that your Office Manage wear this hat until you have enough product purchasing that it warrants another person. One of the biggest mistakes I see is design firms that have the Designer do all of the follow up after the purchase order is created, or worse yet, several people pitch in on the task. This is costly and will cause confusion and profit loss on your projects.
This job description also includes installation coordination which is a nice addition to the role. Revise this Word document as needed and streamline your purchasing process.
