Job Description

Category Manager

"You have not lived until you have done something for someone who can never repay you."

Do you want to work for an organisation that gives back the community in a big way? An organisation who's sole purpose is to look after the vulnerable people in its charge and build a safe haven which promotes independence, value of life and outstanding care above all else? We're working with such an organisation who are looking to grow their procurement team. If you've got a passion for others and strong category management experience (and want to be based in Derby), we've got your dream job.

The Role:

Working alongside the Head of Procurement, you will be responsible for category management across a wide variety of different areas of spend, where every day will be different and every category will require a new approach and fresh ideas to deliver the cost savings, quality and value that our client are looking for.

You will work alongside both the procurement team and senior management to represent the organisation to the highest possible standard.

About You:

It goes without saying that you will have extensive experience as a category manager, having previously worked to lead and manage a broad category of spend as well as work with a variety of stakeholders and portfolios. You will also need to have a good working knowledge of procurement law.

We're looking for someone with good inter-personal skills, the ability to build positive relationships and be able to lead project teams.

We're ideally looking for someone with CIPS level 6 and that is educated to degree level in a business subject that said, if you've got extensive work experience, we'd still love to hear from you.

This opportunity will suit someone who's worked at a senior level before and is now looking for a slightly more relaxed working environment with less pressure. What you've procured previously isn't make or break.

If this sounds like a bit of you, then please get in touch, give me a call on 0115 947 0200 or send me your CV and salary expectations Let's start the conversation and let's see if we can find you your dream move.
