As the Procurement Manager for IT you will effectively create and implement short, medium and long term group procurement strategies to maximise the company’s purchasing power through the effective prioritisation of categories within the portfolio and close collaboration with business partners.

Your spend responsibility will be in the region of £25M and you will be responsible for establishing and developing effective supplier relationships across the most strategic and critical spend areas within corporate services to mitigate risk and drive value for the business.

The post holder will be required to build strong internal relationships with stakeholders at all levels (from the CIO down) and work on a truly collaborative basis to deliver end to end sourcing solutions.  Contract management is also a key part of this role and your responsibility will extend to ensuring all contracts are fit for purpose and meet the company's terms, limiting all risks and liabilities.
