My current title is Buyer. I handle the purchasing of the larger categories of direct materials and train any new Buyers. I also manage outsourcing and quoting of raw materials for new business, among other things.

I am looking at taking over capacity planning for manufacturing, while keeping my previous responsibility.

What could I suggest for a new title/promotion? There isn't an existing position that I would be filling, and I want to show career growth on my resume.

One possibility could be Director of Capacity Planning. This would entail taking on additional responsibilities such as forecasting future needs and ensuring that the manufacturing process has the necessary resources in place to meet demand.

like

Director of Purchasing and Capacity Planning, or Manager of Purchasing and Capacity Planning. This title would reflect the additional responsibility of capacity planning that has been added to the buyer's role.

I recommend you to make a detailed report with what you are proposing, it is better if you put the flaws you are observing and how you could improve them, so you can give a justification to the request you are making.

Hi all! I spent 8 years working in the veterinary field before deciding to go back to school to get a degree in communication media. I graduated in 2020 and I got a job with a national franchise (corporate) less than a year after graduating. The role was for a Brand Manager and it transitioned to Communication Manager about 7 months in. The company was toxic, disorganized, had no idea what they were doing. *cont in comments*
