A fantastic opportunity for an experienced Buyer to move into a Regional role, working closely with the Global Procurement team to implement sourcing strategies, across Indirect spend, at a local level.

If you have a few years of Indirect procurement experience behind you and are now looking for a step up into a Regional, multi-country procurement position, then this is the role for you!

My client has recently gone through a global transformation within procurement and has introduced a category management model across the organisation. As part of this re-structure, we are looking to recruit an experienced Buyer to work closely with the Global team to support the roll out of global sourcing strategies at a local level. The region will cover UK, Ireland and Nordics and will involve occasional travel. Key categories for this role will include Marketing, FM, Travel and Fleet.

As the main point of contact of procurement in the region, you will have excellent stakeholder management skills, strong background in complex negotiations and contract knowledge. This is a highly visible position, which will require someone with a confident and professional approach, to influence business partners, challenge where necessary and influence savings across the spend budget.

Experience required:

  • Degree - preferably in business
  • 3-5 years relevant experience in operational procurement
  • Practical expertise in procurement processes
    Excellent written and spoken English
  • Specific knowledge in purchasing processes and negotiation
  • Results and outcomes driven
  • Excellent MS Office skills and knowledge of eSpend, eSourcing & other eProcurement tools
