Procurement Engagement Lead – Consultancy


Do you work in Procurement and have been involved in some exciting projects where you’ve really driven change and attained some great savings for the business?

If so and your current ‘day job’ is now looking pretty ‘samey’ and is perhaps just keeping things ‘ticking over’’ then perhaps you need to find something different that allows you to be at the front and lead projects that directly impact a business?

Our client is a leading Procurement Consultancy operating across many industries including manufacturing, distribution, retail, hospitality, healthcare, property and the service sector.

Due to the growth in their business, they are looking to bring in someone who wants to work in a consulting role where you can lead projects but still drive successful outcomes. Their culture is flexible with a great team spirit. They get the job done but manage your time.

They envisage hiring an individual that has worked on internal transformation projects and finds the ‘day job’ a bit run of the mill, someone who wants the drive and energy of a project-led role as well as the flexibility and direct contact with senior stakeholders.

Critically you must enjoy driving savings both directly and through a team.
