A great opportunity to really take your procurement experience to the next level.

Job Description

This is a great role if you're a buyer looking for a role to really broaden the depth and breath of your procurement experience. Working for a leading multinational fmcg business in its well established procurement function you'll be responsible for managing areas of direct packaging and indirect procurement spend such as CAP EX, MRO and Engineering. You'll optimise the procurement strategy for your categories across a wide geographical region and ensure a robust risk management structure is in place whilst supporting individual sites and developing long term strategic relationships.

You will need to have demonstrable procurement experience across direct or indirect categories gained in a complex, multi site environment. Evidence of maturity, collaboration and strong influencing and negotiation skills are essential. Personality is key within the business and you will need to be hugely motivated, be great at building long term relationships and be a real ambassador of procurement within the business.

To be successful in this role you will currently be in a buying role and have responsibility for a category including sourcing materials, managing suppliers and be involved in negotiations. The client is open minded in terms of the sector you have worked in as the purchasing experience is the transferable skills set, however if you have worked in fmcg or manufacturing it would be a significant advantage.

To apply please send your details through to me today.
