  • Focus on complex IT & Technology procurement categories across Enterprise Software, IT Services, Consultancy, Telecoms, Hardware, Data Centre & Resale spend areas, managing both leading IT suppliers as well as bespoke and niche vendors
  • Report into the IT Category Lead, benefiting from one-to-one coaching to ensure your promotion within 12-18 months, either in the IT Procurement team or another category

Required background: -
  • Impressive track record within your procurement career to date, progressing from Grad-uate Buyer to Senior Buyer / Procurement Specialist in just 2-3 years
  • Strong knowledge of the end-to-end procurement process, with strategic (as opposed to just tactical) sourcing experience
  • Specific IT procurement experience required, ideally across software & hardware
