This £ Multi-Billion global enterprise is seeking a passionate Marketing Procurement expert to win over an executive stakeholder community and place procurement in the driving seat.

* Regularly engage with Marketing SVPs and Directors, influencing them through collaboration and sensitive persuasion, and 'taking them on a journey' to see the value Procurement can bring
* Create a legacy for yourself within previously untapped Marketing Procurement areas, gaining senior sponsors to support your progression to increasingly senior Procurement & Commercial ranks
* ?Mentor a junior Marketing Sourcing Specialist (3 years experience) coaching best-practise procurement

Required background:-

* Significant Marketing Procurement, Strategic Sourcing & Category Management experience, with a track record of quick progression (i.e. Graduate Buyer to Senior Buyer to Procurement Manager / Assistant Category Manager within 6-8 years)
* Degree & MCIPS (preferred not essential)

If you are a passionate Marketing Procurement specialist looking for accelerated career progression within a highly intelligent and collaborative environment, this could be a great procurement challenge for you.
