Imagine eating porridge for every meal. Every day. Every week. 24/7/365.


Sure, you might chuck in some cinnamon or a banana to mix things up, but at the end of the day it’s still porridge.


Why should Procurement be any different?


A Nottingham based business are looking for a Senior Buyer to cover project spend.


By networking with your internal stakeholders, you’ll be taking the lead on anything project spend related.


It’s the type of role where you’re not just focussing on one category. Perfect if you’ve had enough of dealing with just IT spend, for example.


This could cover anything from office refurbs / new office openings, systems, temp labour contracts, through to marketing material, utilities, and fleet.


There are category managers in the business to support on the intricacies of particular categories. You’ll be the person translating stakeholder needs in to a procurement plan of action.


Some will say jack of all trades, master of none.


You say Buyer of all trades, master of stakeholder management, supplier engagement, defining sourcing specs, sourcing, and contract negotiation.


Sounds good?


If you have experience in indirect procurement and would like to add a bit more variety to your portfolio, we’d love to speak to you.


To find out more, you can either apply via this advert, or contact Joel Stevenson at Distinct Recruitment for a chat.


We look forward to hearing from you.
