Job description

Procurement & Supply Chain Manager – FMCG
Derby – 5 days onsite

Would you enjoy setting up a procurement function from scratch? Do you have strong experience in supplier and contract management?

I’m exclusively supporting an FMCG business based in Derby to recruit a Procurement & Supply Chain Manager. This is a brand-new role for the company – so you’ll have full autonomy in driving and implementing procurement improvements.

They’re a successful family-run SME, so you’ll be working alongside a close-knit team that are passionate about their product and all pull together in the same direction.

You’ll also have access to their flex-hours policy. So, if you’re someone who has school drop-offs/pick-ups for example, you’ll have the flexibility to complete the required hours around your home life.

Salary & benefits
£45-55k DOE
 
Role overview
Day to day you’d be involved in:
  • Managing circa £30m spend across goods and services.
  • Reviewing and negotiating contracts.
  • Analysing supplier performance and market research.
  • Centralising the procurement function.
  • Supplier relationship management.
  • Assisting with forecast and planning supply requirements.  
About you
Requirements:
 
  • Contract management and negotiation skills.
  • As you’ll be setting up the function from scratch, you’ll need to be someone who isn’t afraid to ask questions.
  • Stakeholder management skills will be vital, but having the confidence and drive to be inquisitive and find out information from all areas of the business is important.
  • Having exposure to an ERP system implementation is a bonus, but not essential.
  • Competency using MS Excel will be needed.
  • Ideally, you’ll have come from an FMCG/distribution background. That being said, we’re open to receiving applications from similar fast-paced environments.

To find out more, please apply via this ad. If you’d rather have an initial chat first, that’s fine – contact Chris Adams at Distinct Recruitment.

We look forward to hearing from you.
