This prestigious Professional Services Firm who are leading in their market are enjoying rapid expansion and pouring investment into a procurement function, in order to aid growth and drive massive value. As a result, the Firm has created a new position for an ambitious and passionate Procurement Manager to join their journey and set up a brand new strategic procurement function in a Greenfield setting.

The Strategic Procurement Lead will be responsible for:

  • Managing a portfolio across multiple indirect categories, including IT, FM and corporate services
  • Engaging in the full portfolio's sourcing process, supplier negotiations, strategic account relationships, performance evaluations and continuous improvement initiatives
  • Growing the strategies in line with the wider organisations goals to incorporate new sustainable policies into their processes, and take a modern, fresh approach to procurement
  • Drive saving initiatives in close cooperation with stakeholders in the whole company

Required Background for the Strategic Procurement Lead:
