This leading and growing chemical business seeks an ambitious procurement specialist with a number of year’s industry experience, to join this small function and work closely with the head of procurement in development and building of this team.

This developing and growing business that are making significant strides in the UK markets are looking to build procurement as a core function to sustain the growth of the wider business. The business will be providing extensive development and learning opportunities including one-to-one mentoring with the head of procurement to ensure that their procurement specialist evolves onto category management.

Procurement Specialist job overview:-
  • Work directly with and shadow the head of procurement in building stakeholder relationships, overseeing major projects and advising the business on procurement strategies.
  • Work on full end to end procurement processes on both direct and indirect service spends.
  • Work with the Head of Procurement to draft agreements with suppliers using appropriate contracts and utilising internal business experts as appropriate.
  • Support and, where appropriate, lead supplier negotiations to secure the most favourable outcome.

Required procurement background:-
  • At least two years of experience working within a multinational blue-chip, ideally with exposure across both indirect and direct spends possibly through a graduate training program.
  • Degree level education from a leading university at 2:1 level or above.
  • The ability to demonstrate drive and ambition and the willingness to learn new processes to build their career within an immature function.
  • Strong negotiation skills and the ability to work alongside senior stakeholders.
