This role will be focusing on some key strategic projects in the business as they go from strength to strength and have the support of the Group Procurement Director who this role reports to.

  5. Pro active in going out to the wider exec to ensure Procurement is acting as a business partner and to be a commercial hub of the business while maintaining good governance.
  6. The business has now over 19 sites so there maybe the occasional travel, but the role is mainly split between the head office in Buckinghamshire and home working.

The person we hope to find

  1. Proven team leadership experience.

  3. Ability to interact and influence senior board level stakeholders.
