Our client, a market leading UK FTSE 100, undergoing significant Business re-organisation and Procurement transformation seeks to recruit an experienced Category Manager to lead the HR & Professional category Portfolio. This is an exciting opportunity to play a lead role in the development of a ‘greenfield’ procurement function.

The jobholder will be responsible for developing key stakeholder relationships focused on the continued development of procurement as a trusted business partner - gaining a seat at the table for all HR, Recruitment, Consultancy and Professional Services sourcing requirements. It is expected that the jobholder be able to design and implement appropriate category plans and sourcing strategy in line with business requirements. The jobholder will support the Head of Category Management with the development of strategic sourcing process, policy and ‘best-practice’ within this recently established team.
