Do you have extensive direct procurement & category management experience within FMCG (Consumer Goods, Food & Drink, Pharmaceuticals etc)? Do you want to work for a fast-growing, ambitious FMCG business that is leading its field?

Client Details

Our client is a successful, market-leading FMCG brand, based in North West London. They are growing incredibly fast, have a wide range of products (with many more to come!) and are now looking to develop their direct procurement strategy. Their Head of Procurement is currently developing the strategy, and now needs an experienced Group Procurement Category Manager to join him to drive this strategy forward.


The Group Procurement Category Manager will work very closely with the Head of Procurement to develop and embed the group's procurement strategy, and to utilise the group's scale to gain improved terms with the suppliers across the different factory sites.

This will include conducting strategic reviews into current and potential suppliers; building exceptional relationships with them; developing category strategy and leading improvement projects across the sites. You will develop excellent market knowledge, using that to identify new suppliers for both current and new product ranges.


To be successful in this role, you will need to be very experienced in direct procurement - ideally from an FMCG background (Consumer Goods, Food & Drink, Pharmaceuticals, etc) - and a strong knowledge of effective category management (both creating and delivering the strategy).

You will have excellent knowledge of best practice, but you won't be satisfied being a cog in a big corporate machine - you will have initiative, a proactive, results-focused mentality, and the drive to make your mark on the group procurement strategy. You will also have exceptional stakeholder management skills, and the ability to succeed in an environment without firmly established processes.

If that sounds excites you, apply today!

Job Offer

On offer is the change to join a fast-growing business and to really make an impact on their procurement function. You will also receive a salary of £50k-£58k, plus a great benefits package.
