Our client is a leading UK grounds maintenance and landscaping company, creating and maintaining external environments that are safe and enjoyable for all.

To support continued success and growth they have an opportunity for an experienced Procurement Manager to join their rapidly growing business.

Using your skills as a procurement expert, you will develop, implement and manage the procurement strategy for the business. Through challenging the status quo and having win-win negotiations with our supply chain, you will obtain optimum control, value and service whilst finding savings across the business. You will have a passion for people and will lead and develop a customer focussed team.

Key Responsibilities:

Through a thorough diagnostic process, identify and develop Category Plans aligned with the business requirements. Partner with stakeholders to gain support for category plans, including your internal customers and, when relevant, existing suppliers.

Identify and track a sustainable savings programme within each category. Proactively report on both potential and achieved savings.

Negotiate contractual agreements with suppliers that ensure value and service levels are optimised; you will confidently lead in complex and difficult conversations and negotiations.

Ensure that value and savings are realised through supplier relationship management frameworks. Implement and maintain Balance Scorecards for our top suppliers and regularly engage with them to review and update.

Maintain and regularly update a detailed spend graph across the business. Continually challenge poor decisions and work in partnership with stakeholders to improve the procurement culture.

Regularly review and update all relevant procurement policies, implementing new ones as necessary to ensure the business is making best use of resources, your team and is compliant within the law.

Direct and manage the procurement team, providing clear and motivational leadership and developing team capability to deliver against objectives set.

Monitor, develop and manage KPIs for your team to ensure productivity is maintained.

Your internal customers are critical – demonstrate improvements in the customer focus of your team and ensure all business requirements are met in a timely and friendly manner.

Continually develop all staff through training, mentoring and ensuring all staff have a development plan.
