The Procurement team has recognised that it must increase capability in order to deliver improved savings to the business and a best-in-class service to its customers. As a result, roles and organisational structure have been realigned to suit the requirements of the future organisation and they are looking for high potential individuals who have the commercial, technical and behavioural leadership qualities to make this a reality.
Part of your remit will be to expand the existing team, recruiting three new and pivotal posts; so you really can directly shape and build the procurement function.
