Ref: D0026841



I met a new client on Friday to take a brief for a Commercial Buyer job we’re working exclusively on.


I asked him for 3 reasons someone would leave a job you’re probably content in for this one. He gave 4:


  1. It’s a new(ish) start-up operation, so there’s opportunity to get involved in developing processes and ways of working alongside the day to day procurement piece.


  1. It’s dealing with a broad indirect / services category mix, so you won’t get weary dealing with the same stakeholders day in day out. You’ll be able to thoroughly network the business to drive procurement forward.


  1. The team is the vanguard for procurement (I had to look that one up too), and you’ll be part of raising the procurement profile.


  1. You’ll be given all the tools and opportunities to develop, including CIPS support. If this means that you’re turning heads after a couple of years and a good opportunity comes up elsewhere, then so be it. They won’t hold you back. Alternatively, they’ll be equally as happy if you’re content with doing a good job and not wanting to climb the career ladder.


Salary £30-39k, Nottingham city based (good transport links). OJEU experience is essential as they’re a public sector organisation.


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


We look forward to hearing from you.
