Make an impact in procurement at LV=
Published: 04 Jan 2017
Here at LV= we’re transforming the way we work when it comes to procurement – delivering real value to the business – by making sure we do things better for our customers at every opportunity.
As you may have seen previously, our transformation project is one of the biggest and most revolutionary in the UK, standing us apart from our competitors and ensuring we’re working with the best possible suppliers. Over the last year we have been making a difference in procurement at LV= through the use of leading edge technologies, tools, processes and information systems to drive efficiency, but we’re also building capability, capacity and expertise through the people in the team.
We believe that a big part of the success of our transformation is making sure we have the right people on board – people who have the autonomy and authority to make an impact and truly lead our procurement activity across the business. We are seeking a number of Senior Category Managers, Sourcing Managers and Assistant Sourcing Managers, who through a deep understanding of our market dynamics, will bring innovation and collaboration to help drive our business forward at this exciting time, towards bigger and better things.
“We’re looking for experienced, energetic, insightful and creative procurement professionals to join the team,” says Karl Poulsen, Head of Procurement. “We want people who are able to work closely with our business colleagues to develop strategies and add real value.”
In return we’re offering opportunities to grow and learn in a collaborative environment working with leading edge technology and tools. While our head office is in Bournemouth we’re pretty flexible if you can demonstrate that remote working works for the business. We’re always looking at how we can improve and make sure LV= is a great place to be and that’s why in our latest independent employee survey, engagement was at 86 percent – that’s 13 percent above other UK financial services companies.
