Purchasing Manager – Indirect Spend

£50,000 - £50,000

Leicestershire - Permanent

Posted: 3 weeks ago

Ref: D0029280



An East Mids based FMCG manufacturer is looking for an Indirect Purchasing Manager.


There are great foundations in place including visibility of 90% of spend, knowledge of which contracts and projects need focus over the next 12-24 months, and a good procurement reputation across the business.


The missing link is you – the driving force to start adding real value, and that’s exactly what you can do here.


In 5 years time, the business is going to be 4 times bigger than what is was a few years ago. They’re already halfway there.


Which means procurement isn’t just about driving costs down. You’ll be focussing on proper procurement management, putting suppliers and solutions in place that benefit the longevity and growth of the business, and delivering indirect procurement strategy plans.


You’ll be surrounded by a supportive team, with peer Procurement Managers covering direct spend sitting next to you. Your manager strikes the perfect balance of being hands-off enough to let you get on with things, but there to support when needed.


If you’re interested in having a blank canvas to manage indirect spend, in a solutions-driven business that loves innovation, we’d like to hear from you!
