Head of Procurement

£80,000 - £100,000

South Yorkshire - Permanent

Posted: 1 week ago

Ref: D0017848



Do you ever sit and wonder how the procurement function would look if only you had free reign?


A South Yorkshire based business are looking for a Head of Procurement to create and embed a new in-house procurement function, covering indirect spend.


With full sponsorship of the exec team, you’ll be given total autonomy on the shape of procurement, with business objectives of cost savings, value realisation, and innovation in mind.


Without being a start-up, it’s as close to a greenfield role as you can get.


It’s a broad spend portfolio, covering utilities, maintenance, HR, professional services, fleet, packaging etc. Spend is roughly in the region of £300m.


In your first few months, there will probably be little tendering and contracting activity taking place. Instead there are 2 key initial areas to focus on: networking / building relationships with stakeholders, and reviewing procurement processes. This will give you a clear roadmap of what structure, systems, and processes are needed.


Based on this first 90 days, you’ll be putting together and delivering the long-term procurement strategy. The exec team won’t dictate this – you will.


If you’re an experienced Indirects Head of Procurement looking for a positive challenge, or if you haven’t been the number 1 procurement but it’s the next logical step in your progression,  we’d love to hear from you.
