Our client is a global leader in the fast growing scientific services market.  With facilities in almost 40 countries so far, it provides essential expertise to almost every industry.  It will continue to grow, both organically and as the main consolidator in a very fragmented industry.

The business is setting up a new Group Strategic Sourcing function and this role, Category Manager Technical Equipment, will manage a business critical category, with spend of close to £30m across the EMEA region.

Starting from very much a blank piece of paper, you will devise, implement and own the category sourcing strategy to deliver sustainable and valuable competitive advantage through

- full control and visibility of the category spend on a total cost of ownership basis

- a world class cost base delivered from a world class supplier base

- deep, broad and proactive commercial and technical supplier relationship management programmes

- maximum access to innovation

Reporting to the Head of EMEA Procurement, you will have real freedom, accountability and support.

To be successful in this role, you will need to

- be credible in a scientific / technical environment with a real understanding of a wide range of laboratory equipment, particularly material science and testing / certification

- Proven experience of successful strategic sourcing of similar capital equipment with complex lifecycle costs

- have an international outlook, ideally with German and / or Scandinavian experience / languages

- work with a high energy level and have a real ability to sell strategic sourcing across the business, including to sometimes reluctant audiences

- align category sourcing strategies to the overall business direction and to position sourcing as a value adding function, over and above a cost saving [link removed]ainable competitive advantage in the cost base versus competitors

This is a broad and high profile role in an environment with a very strong focus on the delivery of tangible results.

The Group will continue to grow, so this is a fantastic time to join.  The pace will be rapid, the challenge is large, the opportunity is larger and the potential to grow as The Group does is significant.
