  • Lead on specific global projects in cross-functional teams across spend areas such as Consultancy, Tax, Audit and Recruitment, delivering cost savings whilst ensuring value is continuously added
  • Undertaking the full end to end procurement process, including RFQs, tendering, contract award and post-contract management of strategic global suppliers
  • Engaging with C-Suite Level Stakeholders in the business to understand and deliver on key requirements whilst also managing and influencing them to gain buy-in to procurement
  • Managing key suppliers; creating new relationships and developing them into long-term successful partnerships
