My client is an instantly recognisable, huge global name. We have been retained to support a huge raft of development driven recruitment for Category Managers in the business.
The key responsibility of the Category Manager is to own the complete category strategy for specified commodities for the business. With an order book which is due to increase vastly over the next 12 months, the strategy across both the Supply Chain and related Procurement functions needs to be capable of ramping up alongside this increased business function. The suitable candidates for these role must have experience of managing category based spend in an industrial manufacturing environment and will ideally come from a large OEM or Tier One.
The successful candidate will have substantial experience within a category based management function, ideally within either Aerospace, Automotive or Rail. Understanding how to drive and improve category strategy as well as leading teams within these functions is essential. Consideration of cost, quality and delivery will be of key importance, and someone who has strong communication and stakeholder management and influencing would look like a very strong option for the roles.
A truly exceptional salary and package is on offer for the successful candidate for the post of Category Manager.
