This globally revered FTSE 100 conglomerate has been a dominating force in the Professional Services market for over 100 years, but despite being a household FTSE 100 name its Procurement function is still in a relatively greenfield state.

The last three years have seen a dramatic shift from Procurement performing a solely administrative function to a strategic and far-reaching one across the global enterprise, and the team is now in need of a commercially astute and politically savvy Procurement & Contracts expert to drive further towards best-in-class.

As Indirect Sourcing & Contracts Manager you can enjoy:-
  • Being considered an SME (Subject Matter Expert) for providing best-in-class commercial guidance and support across an array of indirect categories, slightly skewed towards Facilities Management & Operations, but also covering HR, Professional Services, Fleet & Travel
  • Owning the cradle-to-grave procurement and strategic sourcing process including drafting contracts, negotiating with top tier suppliers, engaging with legal experts, creating RFPs & RFIs etc
  • Regular interaction with executive and Board level stakeholders (CFO, Head of Shared Services) through to Category Leads, Legal and Compliance, external suppliers and Finance
  • A personally tailored development plan delivered by a Senior Category Leader, ensuring your promotion within 1-2 years

Required experience, traits & qualifications:-
  • Strong degree from a leading university (ideally also LLB or legally qualified but not essential)
  • A number of years procurement, strategic sourcing or category management experience with an impressive track record of progression within your short tenure thus far (i.e. Graduate Buyer to Senior Buyer to Procurement Manager / Assistant Category Manager within a few years)
  • Excellent stakeholder management skills with an ability to be politically savvy in a professional and highly intelligent environment

This is an outstanding career opportunity for an ambitious procurement and contracts specialist looking to work alongside industry experts in an iconic FTSE 100 organisation and gain promotion to Senior Management.
