Do you know your WHY?
Are you checking in and checking out, day after day, without knowing where you fit in to the greater procurement picture?
If not, this could be your solution.
Based just outside of Bedford, a business is putting PURPOSE at the heart of everything they do. Everybody knows their WHY and where they fit in. Procurement is no exception.
Currently going through a transformation, the team are looking for a Procurement Category Manager / Senior Buyer to take the lead on indirect procurement. It’s a spend area that has previously been covered by the wider team but hasn’t had one sole person driving it.
This is where you come in.
Covering everything indirect, you’ll be helping the team move from a traditional support function, to taking the lead on true category management. Key areas you can impact on include Fleet, IT and Facilities. The business driver behind this is realising value, reducing TCO, and having long term visibility and management of category spend.
Covering a £50m indirect portfolio, most of which is captured, you’ll be working with stakeholders across the business to understand needs and put together category plans which fit.
Core activity will include developing and executing procurement strategy, providing procurement guidance to stakeholders, sourcing suppliers and negotiating contracts, and ongoing supplier management.
This is a perfect role for you if you’re interested in being part of a developing function with a sense of purpose.
Experience in indirect procurement is essential, as you’ll be to ‘go-to’ person in the team. CIPS is ideal, but if you haven’t yet started a willingness to study is preferable.
Package is in the region of £45-50k, plus car allowance, private medical care for you and your family, and bonus potential up to 25%.
