1st Executive are retained by a global Energy provider who are undergoing significant business change across multiple business units and regional operations. A great time to join an evolving department, with a talented group of individuals. They require an experienced FM Procurement Specialist to join them on an interim basis, and work towards achieving 'quick-win' savings across both their existing and new supplier base.

Job Purpose:
  • To provide interim specialist support within the Private Sector division of the business, covering FM category spend.
  • You'll be required to identify potential savings swiftly and efficiently, getting agreements past the post to increase the value procurement is adding to the business ... In turn improving the perception of the function within the organisation.

Required skills:
  • Proven track record across the FM category (ideally both hard and soft areas) in a private sector environment. This is essential!
  • A strong approach to negotiation with suppliers, along with the ability to stand your ground effectively during the process. This will be a job for someone who is a very experienced negotiator that is able to demonstrate a number of battle-tested tactics in order to achieve what is needed.
  • This is a hands-on role where the main priority is savings. At this moment in time there are no plans to build up or change strategy at category management level, and as such they will not be looking for anyone who is more hands-off and oritentated towards defining strategy.
  • Excellent stakeholder engagement skills - one of your key challenges will be to demonstrate your capability through savings results to senior leadership. This will ideally be done by driving hard on negotiation in order to get what you are targeted to do so.
