Passion, purpose and determination. That’s what this company look for in their Buyers for technology hardware across the business. As a Buyer, you’ll deliver the cost savings that make it all possible. With expert support from a Category Manager, you’ll develop, implement and deliver simple commodity plans.

It’s a role that will call on all of your commercial acumen, as well as your understanding of contracts and basic contract law. You’ll present compelling decisions based on a full range of commercial factors. The senior managers you aim to influence will expect you to be ready with answers to challenging questions, and to have a set of alternative options in your back pocket. So you’ll be every bit as flexible as you are organised and prepared.

Once your plan has been signed off, it’s time to lead project teams to make it happen. You’ll agree everything from supplier selection and set-up, through to contract terms and business improvement plans. Crucially, you will negotiate favourable terms giving them (and their customers) the benefits of the best possible cost, quality and service.

So you’ll deliver real savings and valuable service improvements. And your impact won’t end there. As a key member of the Digital and Technology Procurement Team, you’ll support the development of bigger Category Plans.



  • CIPS qualified or working towards.
  • Procurement experience within IT/Digital Technology would be beneficial.
  • You must be a commercially astute and analytical thinker, who can get their head around cost make-up and pricing models.
  • You must demonstrate knowledge of strategic sourcing and supplier/stakeholder management principles.



Candidates who have indirects experience (inclusive of IT) will also be considered
