Full Time

Exciting new permanent Procurement vacancy for a leading Procurement Consultancy, specialising within the retail industry…

This is a rather unique and exciting opportunity to join a growing specialist procurement consultancy set up by three senior procurement professionals over 5 years ago.  They have experienced significant growth ever since and have a strong reputation within the fashion retail environment

Traditionally, Consultants with our client specialise in managing greenfield Indirect (GNFR) spend for a range of retail clients.

Due to this continued success, they are now looking to expand their permanent team and recruit a permanent Procurement Manager to work on a new account in London.  A typical week would involve working for the specific client 3 – 4 days a week and then ad-hoc projects (and managing other Consultants) for other clients for the rest of the week, which could include home working.

Ideally they are looking for a strong procurement professional who is street wise, can see and make deals, who is confident and creative, with strong stakeholder engagement and who comes from a retail industry background.  Indirect (GNFR) Retail Procurement experience is preferred but not essential.

Experience of managing and leading teams would also be preferred for this role.

Spend focus is predominantly on Logistics, Packaging, Marketing and FM.

They are looking for the right candidate to continuously save their clients’ money with strategic and out of the box ideas, create cost reductions but not at the expense of the relationship with stakeholders/clients.  They are looking for someone who can continue to deliver value and find new opportunities. 

As this role focuses on Indirect (GNFR) projects, you must have significant Indirect spend experience across areas such as Logistics, Packaging, Soft FM, Fleet, IT, Marketing, HR, Professional Services, Travel, etc
