Would you like the chance to work for one of the biggest success stories in the FMCG sector in the UK in recent years?

Talent Drive is delighted to be able to offer you just that.

You’ll be working as part of a brand-new Procurement Leadership team as they set out the strategic roadmap for 2021 and beyond. This is a newly created role which will see you oversee the Corporate Services category which includes HR, Professional Services and Facilities Management. Reporting to a new Head of Procurement and working closely with the new CPO to execute these categories and the plans are to grow your team further.  Procurement is only just establishing itself in the business and there is big plans to also embed SRM and Supply Chain under the function as they look to gain more visibility to the way the business operates commercially.

If you love a challenge, this role will give you plenty to sink your teeth into – the overall spend is around £100 million and there are some quite immature indirect categories that you will need to use your expertise to nurture and develop. You’ll also be tasked with generating much better engagement from the business when it comes to working with Procurement.

What the role involves:

As Head of Corporate Services, you will be responsible for overseeing around a £100 million indirect spend across UK & Ireland in areas such as HR, Professional Services and FM and identify opportunities for consolidating spend and finding ways to drive best value for the business.

Lead the overall category strategy and looking at ways to drive efficiency and cost savings for the organisation as they continue to grow.

Engaging with senior stakeholders to ensure that the Procurement team is functioning in and effective and commercial way.

The role needs someone to “roll their sleeves up” and to begin with be involved in not only setting the category strategy but executing this and looking at innovative ways to build engagement with suppliers.

The person we hope to find:

Proven track record of delivery on a regional or global scale in a strategic procurement function

Strong end to end procurement sourcing and category management experience across indirect services particularly around HR, Professional Services and Facilities Management

Excellent communication skills and able to work with all levels of management and stakeholders.

Clear and open communication style.

Experience in working in a fast-paced matrix environment.

Highly motivated self-starter: ability to initiate and manage work with minimal supervision.

Salary and Benefits:

£75,000 – £85,000 + attractive share options + pension + 25 days holiday + private healthcare + other flexible benefits

If you’re a Senior Procurement Manager looking for the perfect step up into your first Head of Procurement role, or a well-established Head of Procurement looking for a different kind of challenge in a fast-paced retail environment then this could be a great role for you!

Please apply directly, and good luck!
