IT procurement is a hot topic in the current market as companies in the consumer goods sector are continuously looking to build on their technical capacity, driving a need for procurement managers with experience in this space. I am recruiting for a fast-paced FMCG business who have a critical vacancy in their Indirect team and are looking to bring on board an IT Buyer as soon as possible.

The role of Category Buyer is to act as a Procurement Business Partner for the IT Business Unit in this global-FMCG business. Working closely with stakeholders in the UK and across Europe, this is a great opportunity to forge an international career within a best-in class procurement function.

Key responsibilities from the outset:
  • Implement procurement strategy at a Regional level through collaboration with key stakeholders across Procurement and IT, and devise local strategy as and when required
  • Manage the end to end sourcing of select sub-categories within IT spend and hold suppliers accountable to agreed set of KPIs and SLAs
  • Be adaptable, be dynamic and be proactive in finding solutions, driving value and delivering on commercial targets
  • Successfully drive SRM across the supply base and implement continuous improvement projects

Things you need to have:
  • 3-5 years relevant experience in IT/Technology Procurement, or generalist Indirect procurement within the IT industry
  • Experience in a complex, fast paced business in the FMCG or Retail sector
  • Degree educated, technical qualification in Engineering or Supply Chain
  • Business language is English but fluency in French or Spanish is desirable
  • Strong leadership skills and independence, and extremely commercially savvy
  • Independent right to work in the UK- unfortunately candidates from outside the UK/EU cannot be considered
