Technology Category Manager (Fire & Security)

City of Westminster - London

We are currently working with a global security company who are looking for a new addition to their UK procurement team; a Technology Category Manager (Fire & Security).

Role:

  • As the Technology Category Manager (Fire & Security) You will be responsible for the Fire & Security Technology procurement category - EU wide
  • This includes the physical "equipment" i.e. Fire Alams, Security Alarms, CCTV as well as the Technology Infrastructure/Platforms that run these
  • This will include "cradle to grave" procurement - from implementing a procurement strategy, negotiating contracts, and continual supplier relationship management.
  • The "spend" is fragmented, due to the fact that a lot of the kit is purchased locally at a site level (EU Wide) currently
  • You will need to work with Key Stakeholders to drive a centralised/group approach to the category, where possible introducing group contracts that can be used by all of the local sites.
  • You will be engaging and influencing the stakeholders to gain 'buy-in' to the new approach, often via remote communication, given the EU wide nature of the role.

Experience:

  • You will need to have demonstrable experience of sourcing Technology solutions in an "operational" business
  • You will ideally have "international" experience - not just a UK Category Manager.
  • Strong stakeholder engagment skills - must evidence experience of working in a "multi-site" environment
  • Managing large outsourced servides contracts
  • Experience setting up and using e-procurement systems, including a catalogue ordering system
