For the procurement professionals reading this, I'll get to the point. It's a Sourcing Manager role where the end client is a global QSR and restaurant group. You will be working with Category Managers to develop and execute sourcing strategies over a broad based of content. Considering the end customer business you will be sourcing across food, packaging, consumables and potentially some fixtures, fittings and equipment.
Now the interesting bit, what's so great about this opportunity? It's a newly formed procurement service for the end customer with a current team of 3 in sourcing and 8 in category management. The opportunity here is to be the succession plan for the current leader of the sourcing team or potentially the category team. There is a clear growth plan, the current leaders are primed to step up because of this being a new venture that will grow, they can't do this without you!
For this reason, applicants with a blend of strategic sourcing and category management would be of particular interest, especially if you have a background in food, packaging (high volume, low cost and sustainable) and associated restaurant consumables in a fast food environment.
To be considered and successful in this candidates will need the following:
• Proven experience of strategic sourcing to include strategy development
• Examples of sourcing projects delivered where you can quantify the benefit gained and the how
• A proven ability to source suppliers and deliver a structured tender process to include excellent negotiation skills
• Ideally a relevant degree and formal procurement qualifications (CIPS)
In return you will receive a competitive salary, bonus scheme, a clear progression plan and the potential for some flexible working.
