We are partnering with a leading European specialist pharmaceutical company, who employ circa 1,500 people across various European sites. When you work here, you work in a culture based on teamwork, diversity, flexibility and dynamism.

As the Head of Global Indirect Procurement, you will lead the Global Indirect Procurement team including;

  • Creation and development of category strategies for all spend areas.
  • Integrating GP sourcing activity with budget holder spend management activity.
  • Evolving the GP Indirect Procurement team to ensure delivery and job development for all team members.

Essentially, this role is responsible for:

  • Category Management
  • Business Integration
  • Team Development
  • Business Support

The role involves the management of cross-functional activity in a multi-site, pan-European environment. Although global structures exist, stakeholder behaviours are often locally driven and must be managed accordingly. Global and strategic spend management is a relatively new approach so limited understanding of category management activity exists in the business.

There remain spend areas which are managed locally. Spend ownership is not defined and employees are relatively highly empowered. As such, change management remains a significant challenge.

In summary, the job holder is accountable for the delivery of global strategic purchasing objectives in a culture with a significant legacy of local tactical focus.
