Direct Procurement Lead / Greenfield Function / Industry-Leading Private Healthcare Organisation / Nottingham / Flexible Working / £70,000 - £80,000 + Benefits inc. Bonus

Are you an established passionate procurement professional seeking a completely greenfield procurement function where you have the ability to imprint your procurement approach? If so, this is the perfect procurement opportunity for you.

This industry-leading private healthcare organisation has experienced impressive year-on-year success with extensive future growth plans where they have recently undertaken multiple global acquisitions. They are therefore seeking a procurement lead to facilitate this growth by implementing best-in-practice procurement processes and procedures.

Within this unique opportunity you will have the autonomy to assess the current end-to-end procurement processes, in relation to both SRM and category management, and transform the procurement function to develop a robust procurement strategy. Although activities will initially be focused on the UK remit, you will have the ability to drive activities globally in the future.

Direct Procurement Lead responsibilities…

  • Assess and analyse the current procurement approach to effectively identify areas for improvement across the end-to-end function and subsequently transform the necessary procurement processes, predominantly across directs
  • Implement a strategic and best-practice SRM function in relation to tender management, early supplier onboarding and contract management processes
  • Undertake effective cross-functional collaboration and business partnering to ensure alignment of new procurement strategy across the business
  • Effectively identify areas for cost reduction across the end-to-end procurement function through innovative and create methods for procurement savings delivery

Direct Procurement Lead responsibilities…

  • Demonstrable strategic success across the end-to-end procurement function, ideally in relation to the direct procurement space
  • Strong skills surrounding continuous improvement / transformation, savings delivery and stakeholder relationship management
  • Past healthcare exposure would be advantageous (private or public), but isn't essential
