I have a diploma in Purchasing and supplies management. I have held this position for some time with a well-established hotel in the Kenya. During this time, I have gained extensive knowledge pertaining to purchasing materials and other goods from suppliers and maintaining a good relationship with both internal and external customers.

My experience includes supervising the purchases made by the company to ensure they are receiving the best quality for the best price. It is also my job to approve invoices and payments made to vendors and to handle and resolve any issues associated with business expenses.
