This £ Multi-Billion global enterprise is seeking a passionate Marketing Procurement expert to win over an executive stakeholder community and place procurement in the driving seat. Marketing stakeholders are wired differently to Procurement people - it's not savings that matter but rather how much their money will buy them - so the Firm is looking for a Procurement expert who can collaborate with Marketing to add value for both communities.

  • Strategically manage £ Multi-Million Marketing procurement projects across mainly ATL but also BTL sub-categories including Creative & Design Agencies, PR, Sponsorship, Digital, Conferences & Events, Market Data & Research, Print etc
  • Regularly engage with Marketing SVPs and Directors, influencing them through collaboration and sensitive persuasion, and 'taking them on a journey' to see the value Procurement can bring
  • Create a legacy for yourself within previously untapped Marketing Procurement areas, gaining senior sponsors to support your progression to increasingly senior Procurement & Commercial ranks
  • ‎Mentor a junior Marketing Sourcing Specialist (3 years experience) coaching best-practise procurement

Required background:-

  • Significant Marketing Procurement, Strategic Sourcing & Category Management experience, with a track record of quick progression (i.e. Graduate Buyer to Senior Buyer to Procurement Manager / Assistant Category Manager within 6-8 years)
  • Degree & MCIPS (preferred not essential)
