Your work is readily recognised as it directly influences our client’s success. Your ideas, insights, and dedication shape the direction of our firm and the outcomes we achieve for our clients.

And that's what makes our growing firm mighty.

Here's how you'll make a difference:

  • Be the procurement trailblazer: Take your clients on a procurement journey, blending strategic thinking with hands-on support to tackle everything from direct to indirect spend areas. Your knack  to manage a high variety of spend areas will be the key to unlocking procurement excellence.
  • Empower your team to deliver: Utilise your extensive experience in managing teams to engage and inspire your colleagues, driving them towards delivering the best possible results. Your leadership abilities will be crucial in fostering a collaborative and high-performing team environment.
  • Strategic insight: Use your analytical mindset and ability to manipulate complex data to drive strategic insights. Your storytelling skills help our clients navigate complex procurement challenges and uncover innovative solutions.
  • Navigate change with flair: Drive organisational reviews and transformations with confidence, guiding stakeholders through the change journey. Your experience in change management will be invaluable in navigating procurement transformations and ensuring successful implementation.
  • Problem-solving and creativity: Bring your problem-solving skills and creativity to the table, identifying innovative solutions to procurement challenges and driving continuous improvement within our client organizations.
  • Spot business opportunities everywhere: Keep your eyes peeled for new business prospects and help us grow our practice. Your keen eye for identifying opportunity will be key.

What we're looking for:

  • Deep Consulting Experience with 8-10 years of experience in procurement consulting, with a proven track record of managing diverse spend areas and leading teams to deliver exceptional results.
  • In-depth understanding of procurement best practices, including Opportunity Assessment, Strategic Sourcing, Category Management, and Negotiations.
  • Demonstrated ability in building excellent stakeholder relationships based on trust.
  • Blend Exceptional Communication and Storytelling Skills with the ability to articulate a compelling vision and negotiate positions effectively.

How we view success at 12 months:

  • You will deliver procurement projects on target and on time, exceeding client expectations and driving tangible results.
  • You’ll receive positive client feedback and recommendations, reflecting high levels of client satisfaction and trust.
  • You will be working on multiple engagements and be highly sought after to join and lead projects because you have demonstrable skills in engaging your team, solid delivery, commercial flair and work fantastically well in a team.
  • You will also show positive signs of contributing to the development of our practice.

Why Curzon stands out:

  • Personal Recognition: In our close-knit team, your efforts won't go unnoticed. We celebrate each milestone and recognise the unique contributions you bring to our projects.
  • Opportunities for Growth: As we grow, so do you. You'll have the chance to take on new challenges, expand your skill set, and carve out your path to success in a supportive and collaborative environment.
  • A Culture of Appreciation: At Curzon, we understand the importance of feeling valued. We prioritize open communication, feedback, and recognition, ensuring that every team member feels appreciated for their hard work.

What to expect:

  • Flexibility: Your week may involve a mix of client meetings at their offices, time in our London office, and remote work from home.
