An exciting opportunity to join a Global Law firm as an Indirects Buyer and help grow the strategic procurement function…

Due to internal growth and investment into the Procurement function, my leading global Law firm client is looking to recruit an experienced Indirects Buyer with generalist category knowledge.

This role will play an influential part in raising the profile of procurement within the business and along with the senior management team, help to deliver procurement strategy across a number of Indirect category areas, potentially with a global reach.

This position will give the right candidate exposure to senior Partner stakeholders and the opportunity to influence and challenge the status quo.  You will have a certain resilience about you to engage with Lawyers and Partners alike, but have the skill set to promote procurement and gain buy in by offering strategic and leading solutions.
