Role Overview:

With a spend ranging from €30M to €40M across over 2000 suppliers, you will be managing a very complex spend category of low-value, high-volume contracts. As the Indirect Procurement Manager your job will be to implement appropriate strategies for the tail spend of indirects to reduce the number of suppliers, identify cross-business synergies and ultimately reduce cost and deliver more efficient purchasing processes for low-value contracts.

You will play a pivotal role in establishing and managing a crucial segment of the global procurement strategy. This is a brand-new role, offering the opportunity to build a team from scratch and implement frameworks to manage tail spend more effectively.

The role requires an individual with a great mind for problem-solving, data analytics, supplier management, and establishing industry-leading strategies for cost savings and supplier rationalization.

Key Responsibilities for the Indirect Procurement Manager:

  • Develop and implement strategies for managing transactional spend, focusing on reducing suppliers and optimizing synergies.
  • Lead a team of two, providing guidance and support in achieving procurement objectives.
  • Utilize your expertise in sourcing of indirect services, including RFP, strategy analysis, and category management.
  • Leverage data-driven insights to dive deep into tailspend data, facilitating end-to-end project management from data analysis to execution.
  • Support the wider procurement team in change management, strategy development, and stakeholder engagement.

Requirements of the Indirect Procurement Manager:

  • Experience in sourcing of indirect services, with proficiency in strategic sourcing methodologies.
  • Demonstrated ability to manage ambiguity and thrive in a fast-paced, technology-driven environment.
  • Strong project management skills, with a focus on data analysis and execution.
  • Proven track record of driving cost improvements and EBITA enhancements.
  • Excellent communication and stakeholder management skills.
  • Fluency in English (additional languages such as Spanish or French are advantageous).


  • Bachelor degree in Business Administration, Supply Chain Management, or related field.
  • A proven track record in procurement, sourcing, or category management roles.
  • Previous experience in managing tailspend or similar strategic initiatives is preferred.


  • Opportunity to join a dynamic and rapidly growing technology firm at the forefront of eCommerce innovation.
  • Competitive salary and bonus structure with room for career growth and development.
  • A collaborative and inclusive work environment with a focus on work-life balance offering high flexibility for home-working and one month per year of "Work from Anywhere"
