Company Background

Following a recent transformation, this unique global organisation are in the process of creating a brand-new Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) function and are looking for the right person to head this up!

This organisation, like many, have traditionally incorporated supplier management as part of a traditional procurement role, however, now are looking to truly capitalise on the value that SRM can add to a business by creating this standalone function.

As an organisation that optimizes supply chains for some of the largest FMCG and Food/Beverages companies in the world, a large portion of their key suppliers are packaging and third party manufacturing vendors so experience working with these types of suppliers is beneficial but not essential.

Global Director of Strategic Supplier Relationships, role responsibilities:-

  • You will lead a team of Supplier Relationship Managers who will take responsibility for the operational supplier management whilst, as Global Director, you will focus on the Exec level relationships at the most business-critical suppliers predominantly in the packaging space
  • This will primarily involve designing a supplier relationship management strategy that your team will execute, as well as, then being the key contact for both internal and external C-Suite stakeholders
  • The organisation also work with clients and vendors from all around the world so this is a truly global remit where you will be expected to know how to adapt to different cultures and build relationships across different geographies

Global Director of Strategic Supplier Relationships, required background:-

  • Strong SRM experience, ideally having built out SRM processes within a Blue-Chip environment
  • Evidence of building out successful long-term relationships with key suppliers, ideally in the Packaging space, however SRM specialist in other areas will also be considered
  • Some knowledge of strategic sourcing and procurement is beneficial but this role will focus primarily on developing the supplier relationships rather than sourcing brand new suppliers
  • Desire to work with complete autonomy and in a transformation focused role

This is an excellent opportunity to join a truly innovative company at Director Level and put your stamp on the organisation by building out this business-critical SRM function!
