Individuals with strong Putonghua skills who are ready to pack their bags and travel over the border as the job demands should read on.

Due to its growth and success in sourcing Asian products, one of the largest suppliers of kitchen appliances in the United States is seeking to hire a sourcing director, a supplier development associate and a senior project engineering leader.

Sunbeam International (Asia) offers a competitive salary, year-end double pay, medical and dental insurance plans and a bonus plan - among a host of other attractive incentives.

Applicants for the role of sourcing director should be aware that this position brings several responsibilities, including locating sources and products, negotiating commercial issues, and creating and maintaining relevant databases and operational processes.

While a bachelor's degree in business or engineering will go down well, applicants must also have eight years' durable goods sourcing experience and a minimum of five years' experience in management.

The supplier development associate must have two to three years' experience in locating and qualifying mainland sources and a bachelor's degree in business or engineering.

The senior project engineering leader should have a degree in engineering, with mechanical, electrical, manufacturing or industrial majors, plus at least five years' experience in product development or relevant fields.
