Job description

People Group is currently in the process of hiring a Procurement Manager on behalf of one of our longest-tenured clients at their head office in Surrey. The role is Monday – Friday and has a salary of up to £60,000 plus a package. This role also provides an opportunity to work flexibly, as a hybrid role. 
As a Procurement Manager, you will be responsible for handling the whole supply chain through the development and management of relationships, liaising and negotiating with subcontractors, and preparing. You will be working alongside the wider procurement team and reporting to the procurement director on a variety of different projects simultaneously. The successful candidate should be passionate and devoted to looking for ways to improve service delivery and be well-versed in working with internal stakeholders.
As a Procurement Manager, your primary roles and responsibilities will include:
  • Negotiating and managing strategic agreements across all levels of the supply chain.
  • Performing all procurement activities including pre-qualification, negotiating supplier agreements, preparation of contracts, and tender management.
  • Identifying and developing areas for improvement to continually drive performance and business results.
  • Dealing with new sub-contractors and getting the internal stakeholders to consider new businesses.
  • Managing overall direction, coordination, and procurement evaluation for the company.
Essential Criteria:
  • 2+ years of procurement/buying/supply chain manager experience.
  • Good interpersonal skills.
  • Ability to work on own initiative.

The ideal candidate is somebody who wants to work on behalf of a Main Contractor who has previously worked as a buyer, category manager, or procurement manager. This role is more of a strategic role that will not involve buying, it’s working with the internal teams to bring on and develop relationships.
