We are working with a highly effective and well regarded food manufacturer who are looking to appoint a Head of Procurement. You will be responsible for a number of buyers/procurement manager, across a number of processing sites. Working with the Procurement Director, you will be responsible for implementing the procurement strategy for the group.
The Role of Head of Procurement:
You will be responsible for developing the team who work for you, ensuring they have all the skills and support needed to do their jobs effectively.
You will need to be able to speak to a range of stakeholders at a range of levels. This would be across their customers as well as in their own group.
Developing and implementing the strategic procurement goals, is a crucial part of the role.
You will have experience of working in a Senior Procurement role, ideally with experience of leading a team as well.
A background in sourcing a range of food ingredients is important. They deal with a broad range of products, but it isn't essential to know it all. There are some very experienced people in the business to manage the finer detail.
There will be a fair amount of international and domestic travelling needed, so you will need to be flexible around this.
