Procurement Manager/Indirects/Food Manufacturing/North West***

An excellent opportunity for an experienced food manufacturing procurement professional to join a leading multi-site business and implement their procurement strategy.

We are working with a long established and well known fresh food & FMCG company, who have a need to recruit a Procurement Manager, with experience of dealing with Indirects and GNFR categories. The right person will have experience in a similar role and ideally within fresh food, but definitely FMCG/consumables experience.

The Job:

This is a great opportunity for a Buyer or an experienced Procurement Manager join a hugely successful food manufacturing business. Joining the business as a key player in the team you will have both site and group procurement responsibility across a range of indirects and GNFR categories. You will be responsible for centralising the purchasing function and challenging the supply chain.

You will be managing the company's sourcing of their various packaging and other indirect purchases. There will be a mixture of contracts to negotiate and one-off purchases which will need to be balanced. Quality is a very big factor for the business, so this always needs to be considered alongside the base price. It is no good buying the cheapest product, for the quality to suffer.

The Candidate:

You will have experience of buying indirects and packaging in the past, ideally within a fresh produce or food environment, but other FMCG businesses will be considered. CIPS qualifications isn't essential, but the ability to operate across multiple sites is.. They operate in a very fast paced environment and the ability to think on your feet and react quickly is important. If you have the experience of Indirect/GNFR Procurement in a Food manufacturing environment then we would love to speak to you.
