What does Value mean to you? For us, Procurement isn’t just about saving a few pounds on next year’s mobile phone contracts or the like. Our procurement team place a significant emphasis on value. And value doesn’t always mean saving a quick buck. We want to hire a Senior Procurement Category Manager with the same emphasis on value to help us to negotiate and set up strategic and tactical supply agreements. We’ve got an amazing Procurement team and we need someone to drive us to the next level
Our business in entering probably the most exciting time we’ve ever known, and we’ve got a lot of contracts across the business that are approaching the time where negotiations need to start, this means there is a real opportunity to make your mark on the business early on. The contracts are mainly across Marketing, Property and HR, and due to the size of the business, are multi-million pound agreements. Day to day you’ll be based in Reading, there’ll be lots of negotiating, running of tenders and plenty of commercial analysis and building relationships with internal stakeholders. We want our business to think differently and we need someone with a strategic mindset to help us achieve this
Our ideal Senior Category Manager will have at least 5 years’ experience in a similar role and have significant Marketing category experience. You’ll be MCIPS qualified (or at least working towards this), we are open on what industry you come from, as long as you can demonstrate that you can juggle multiple projects and relationships at once, can negotiate and influence the outcome of various situations and have a legal knowledge of supply contracts. Northgate is moving at a million miles per hour, so the ability to work under pressure in a fast-moving environment will stand you in good stead
We’re offering the successful candidate an extremely competitive basic salary, a bonus and a very generous company car or allowance.
You’ll also get the opportunity to work with one of the most committed and driven Procurement teams in the region and have an opportunity to really drive your career forward.
