12 month FTC Procurement Specialist for prestigious property company in West London.
Your new company
We are working for a very prestigious property company in West London who own and operate a wide range of both commercial and residential properties in the West End. Procurement in this business is fairly greenfield and the Head of Procurement is looking for a fairly experienced hire to join the team and support all procurement activities. The role is initially for 12 months, with the idea that is goes permanent beyond this point, once Procurement has shown its value to the business.
Your new role
In this Procurement Specialist Role (12 month FTC) you will support a highly ambitious Head of Procurement in delivering all aspects of procurement including the identification of cost savings opportunities, supplier negotiations, contract renewals, supplier due-diligence, and supplier management. You will be part of a small team so if you are hungry to take on more responsibility then this is absolutely the role for you.
What you'll need to succeed
In order to succeed in this role you will show prior experience supporting or being part of a procurement function with the ability to engage with suppliers and understand the rough outline of supplier contracts. You don't have to be a legal specialist but some knowledge of key clauses to look out for would be great. Category expertise is not important for this role as long as you have supported the end to end procurement cycle across a range of goods and services.
What you'll get in return
In return you will gain a prestigious brand on your CV. Whilst this is a longer-term FTC (12 months) there could be possibility of the role going permanent at the end of the contract.
