focus management consultants

Opportunity to join a business with great development prospects as the Category Procurement Manager.

If you’re an experienced strategic sourcing procurement professional with strong experience spanning indirect spend this is a great opportunity for you.

My client is a market leading FMCG business supplying into all of the major retailers in the UK. They’ve experienced significant top line and profit growth over the last few years and have a well-respected procurement team in place, so it’s a great opportunity to join this progressive exciting organisation.

I’m looking for a strategic procurement professional to manage the Group spend across the indirect services team. You will be responsible for areas of indirect spend, spanning HR, Travel, Fleet, Utilities, MRO, and general services.

Key responsibilities include:

  • Defining, executing, and implementing sourcing strategies for indirect spend across the group, delivering best value in terms of quality, price, cost, service, innovation and support
  • Working with other sites to assist in the preparation of tenders and implementation of plans for their categories
  • Working with varying stakeholders overcoming any quality, service or other issues and ensuring no interruptions in day-to-day business
  • Preparing annual budgets for all categories – continually seeking commercial advantage throughout the company and helping other budget holders achieve their targets

You will be educated to degree level, or equivalent, and have previous indirect procurement experience within a multi-site, FMCG business. A real influencer, you need evidence of exposure to categories across all areas of corporate spend with a strong track record of results and great people management skills.

Your stakeholder management skills will be your key strength with the ability to work across multiple categories in a complex, fast-paced business. A true category management approach to procurement is essential. Experience within a fast-moving business is also essential.

To apply please send your CV through to me, Hannah, today.
