If you’re looking for a fresh challenge, here’s your chance to put your stamp on a FTSE-listed business.

You already understand what your internal customers want and ensure they get it.

Ensure that all major spend is, regardless of origin, procured in the most effective way, aligned to the company’s sustainability promises while identifying and delivering cost-saving initiatives supporting business financial goals.

Your future employer?

A large, fast-growing FTSE 250 business. This is a pivotal time to join as Procurement Director and have the opportunity to shape the team as you see fit.

With you onboard, this business will be able to continue to grow and scale; you’ll be looking at being the No1 in Procurement for a FTSE 100 business that you’ve helped shape.

It’s not there yet. It needs you on the team!
