Are you looking for a challenging growth focused role within one of the most exciting FTSE brands in the UK?

A rapidly expanding Biopharma company with UK based operations and a sector leading global footprint has a requirement for a Senior Buyer - Indirect Procurement, within their newly transformed indirect procurement function. The position will support the delivery of the current project pipeline, with a focus on FM & Logistics before broadening to have ownership and responsibility of a much wider portfolio of indirects across IT, HR & professional services.

Ideally coming from a strong sourcing background, with an established procurement skillset, you will be comfortable operating and working up to director level in the business. Whilst a sole background in indirect procurement is not required, some knowledge of owning responsibility for a singular indirect category would be an advantage.

You will possess the ability to integrate yourself rapidly into a fast paced and demanding environment, populated by a challenging stakeholder base, coming with an ambitious and driven attitude to progress in an environment that rewards hard work and investing in the development of their staff.

Taking control of the full raft of existing projects, along with development of a new project pipeline through stakeholder collaboration across a complex business, you will be able to operate autonomously within the role and business, forging relationships rapidly in order to influence and achieve results.

This is a delivery focused and hands on role for an individual looking for a challenging and rewarding next step in their career.


  • Existing background within indirect procurement, ideally having managed a broad portfolio of categories
  • Strong stakeholder skillset, with proven ability to engage up to director level
  • Excellent communication skills and used to working in results driven environments
  • Some mandatory travel is required
