As part of a CFO backed Procurement initiative, this £ Multi-Billion Professional Services Giant is pumping investment into creating a Supplier Relationship Management Centre of Excellence.

* Play the role of 'challenger' to the business in circumstances of increased risk and cost, and provide innovative solutions to generate "win-wins" for the business and the suppliers
* Provide quality thought leadership in broader commercial initiatives outside of the Supplier Management community to improve relationships and collaboration in a wider setting
* Be an inspirational figure to more junior SRM and Procurement experts, instilling a high performance culture and demonstrating best-in-class SRM

Required background:-

* Impressive Supplier Relationship Management / Vendor Management career to date, delivering tangible benefits to your previous Blue Chip & FTSE 100 employers
* Expertise across Contract Management, Performance Management & Relationship Management, across any Indirect areas
* Degree & MCIPS preferred though not essential
* Natural ability to build strong and fruitful relationships both internally and externally
