Your new company
You will join one of the Leading Global Management Consultancies in London sitting in their in-house procurement function. They have a global footprint in over 150 countries and employ over 200,000 employees globally. Global revenue of over $30bn.

Your new role
You will join a mature procurement function where you will provide support for the strategic sourcing for the Business Services and Travel categories as well as managing large projects to mitigate/manage risk.

The sub-categories you will be responsible for are, travel (air, rail and ground transport), hotels/serviced accommodations, meeting/event services, training centres, corporate card programme, car fleet and insurance.

The three key areas of your role will focus on strategic sourcing, relationship management and risk mitigation. You will be required to support/identify sourcing activity across business lines to delivery commercial value.

In addition, you will act as a business partner to the different business units with the aim to provide governance support to key supplier relationships. Your role will also emphasis on strategic negotiation on contracts/SLAs, compliance and regulatory requirements aiming towards the ongoing development of best practice procurement processes.

What you'll need to succeed

CIPS qualification is highly desirable but not essential.

As expected strong stakeholder engagement/management skills is essential with the ability to negotiation and communicate with stakeholders at all levels. You will need a proven track record to identify risk and show the skillset to mitigate this.

My client may also consider generalist procurement experience but of course Business Services/Travel categories would be preferred.

What you'll get in return
As well as a competitive salary you will join a diverse global workforce but based in Central London. You will have the autonomy to manage the category ownership and influence ways of working. The company provide you with the platform to develop your career and continuously improve.

The organisation provider fantastic on-the-job training throughout your career, so that you are always learning and developing new skills.
