Head of Procurement

Are you a Head of Procurement/Procurement Director looking to make a significant difference in a rapidly changing and growing business? This is an exciting brand new role that has arisen due to the creation of a new £120m turnover multi-site division formed from the recent amalgamation of two divisions. Up until now procurement has been carried out on a local basis.

Ultra Electronics PCS is an operating business of Ultra Electronics, a leading developer of mission and safety critical equipment in the aerospace and defence industries. Clients call upon specialist electronic, mechanical and pneumatic capabilities to provide innovative solutions that meet the environmental and operational requirements of high reliability environments. With innovative engineers, skilled project managers and experienced manufacturing personnel to be found at the heart of the organisation, Ultra is able to continue to produce and develop products that push the limits of technology and respond to the ever changing demands of the industry.

You will oversee the management of all material related disciplines and will develop and execute the full end to end supply chain strategy and direction for the division, delivering significant value for the organisation through an innovative and customer focused procurement service.

Initially, you will manage the Cheltenham Procurement team and Global Supply Chain, ensuring robust processes exist to facilitate adherence to business requirements, to drive cost down initiatives and to identify and mitigate the risks associated with a diverse supplier base. Once established in the role you will take on full procurement responsibility across PCS in the UK. To help you succeed you will be backed up by an organisation committed to cultural change and Continuous Improvement. You will also get the personal support and development you need to progress your career.

You will have a proven track record as a Head of Procurement/Procurement Director, managing full end-to-end supply chain, leading teams across multi-sites in aerospace or electronics manufacturing environments. You will have the ability to offer a detailed, business-wide strategic overview and will have proven skills in negotiating and in improving long-term supplier performance. You will also have a track-record in driving change and developing teams to become best-in-class.

Are you the one we're looking for? To apply for this exciting opportunity, please send a copy of your CV by clicking the apply button. Due to the expected volume of applicants we may not be able to send you a personal response, but only communicate with you if your application is successful. All direct and third party applications will be passed to Ultra's retained consultancy Kaizen Talent Solutions.
