Senior Procurement Specialist – Entrepreneurial Tech Firm – London, Basingstoke or Newcastle - £35,000 – 42,000 + Bonus + CIPS Sponsorship + Fast-track Promotion to Category Manager

Due to rapid growth this young Tech firm is seeking an ambitious, commercially-minded Procurement Specialist to join ranks and deliver a step-change across key indirect categories (HR, Professional Services, Travel etc.). Thanks to progressive leadership, Procurement has come a long way over the last four years but the team still has development areas in their best-in-class journey, so this new po-sition presents a fantastic opportunity to add value and carve a name for oneself en-route to ‘Cate-gory Manager.’

With offices across the UK, you have the option to be based in a location close to home. Key offic-es with procurement presence are London, Basingstoke and Newcastle.

As Senior Procurement Specialist you will:-

• Proactively sell strategic procurement initiatives to senior stakeholders, positioning procure-ment more effectively within the organisation and gaining crucial buy-in from Divisional Heads, Sales Directors and the Managing Director
• Autonomously own £ Multi-Million procurement indirect sub-categories (HR, Professional Services, Travel etc.) and strategic sourcing projects from cradle-to-grave, from gathering stakeholders' requirements to ITT, RFP, RFQ, contract negotiation and award, and supplier relationship management (SRM) phases
• Bring an entrepreneurial spirit to the team, picking up broader commercial responsibilities outside of typical Procurement & Sourcing (e.g. progressing toward P&L ownership and wid-er commercial management)
• ?Focus on complex procurement categories – e.g. Legal, Tax, Consultancy, Recruitment -managing both leading large suppliers as well as bespoke and niche vendors
• Report into the Procurement Leader, benefiting from one-to-one coaching to ensure your promotion within 12-18 months

Required background:-

• Impressive track record within your early procurement career to date, ?progressing from Gradu-ate 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. My client are open to your category experience – i.e. either indi-rect or direct
• Degree qualified & studying CIPS (preferred though not essential)

If you are a passionate, self-starting procurement professional looking for real responsibility and exposure, this thriving business is promising an exciting career. With the flexibility of base loca-tion this is a great option for up and coming procurement talent.
