Greenfield Procurement role for global law firm available in London.


Your new company
A global law firm are looking to recruit a Procurement Manager to build their procurement function from scratch. They currently spend millions with 3rd party suppliers and have no real management over the process and policy. Their largest office is in London and this is where the majority of their spending takes place with almost 300 lawyers in that building alone.

Your new role
As the stand alone Procurement Manager you will be investigating existing supplier relationships and identifying cost saving opportunities across corporate spend areas such as IT, facilities, professional services, contingent work force, and office supplies. Whilst the majority of the spend will be regionally focused, the IT spend will also span the global remit across the entire company,. You will be demonstrating procurement expertise and engaging with key business heads across the business and reporting into the Managing Partner. You will be leading the negotiations with existing and new suppliers and putting in place processes and policies across the board. Once these agreements are set in place you will be handing over effectively to the business units to ensure full contract compliance and you will be the escalation point for any procurement related issues across the business.

What you'll need to succeed
To succeed in this role, you will ideally have prior experience within a Greenfield function, though this is not absolutely essential. As the IT division has a huge spend road-plan in the next 12-18 months, if you have experience managing an IT spend then this would be advantageous here, but by all accounts they are not looking for an IT category specialist. You must work succinctly and be an effective communicator to succeed in this role to allow stakeholders to get on board and buy-in to procurement.

What you'll get in return
In return you will receive competitive salary package with a reporting line directly into the Managing Partner. You will have the opportunity to really lead and drive a new procurement set up in the heart of London – such opportunities do not come about every day!
