My client is a Fortune 500 global Automotive organisation, with a turnover in excess of $8Bn - we require a Global Commodity Director to lead a shift from regional "Silo" purchasing to global purchasing, with a uniform global strategy.
The ideal candidate is someone who has significant global commodity experience and Automotive industry experience. With at least 6 years' senior leadership experience, you will have an Engineering degree, complimented by a masters level business degree, and can speak fluent English (business level). You will be a strong negotiator, being able to achieve significant bottom line savings whilst also adding significant value to the global purchasing activities for your commodity. Ideally you would be able to speak additional European languages - Dutch would be perfect.
This role does not have remote working, so you have to be either based in Belgium or willing to relocate - relocation assistance can be provided and visa sponsorship can also be given to suitable candidates.
