Head of Procurement


"Excellent opportunity for procurement professional with track record in stakeholder engagement and transformational change".


£65-70000 Car/Allowance Excellent Benefits Package


Cambridgeshire (Hybrid/Remote with National Remit).



Are you an experienced procurement professional looking for a challenging role?


Our client, a major supplier of agricultural products and equipment, is currently recruiting for a Head of Procurement to join their team based in, Cambridgeshire. This is a newly created role, and you will be ably supported by an experienced Buyer. The successful candidate will create a unified procurement strategy and system across the entire business, for indirect spend/GNFR, consisting of multiple sites in the UK.


In recent years, the company has purchased several other businesses around the UK, each with its own localised procurement function. As you can imagine, it isn't an efficient system with fluctuations in price, quality, and delivery at each site.


So, this role has been created to build a centralised procurement system from the ground up. As each site was previously a stand-alone business, they all have historical, ingrained systems, so your key challenge will be to transition them all to a central system with new procedures. As such, your change-management and negotiation skills will be heavily used.


A large part of your success will be in building relationships with each site manager, understanding their preferred suppliers, and delivering detailed training, coaching, and mentoring on your new system.


Our client expects you will be degree and qualified in a relevant discipline and have substantial experience in leading a procurement function in a multi-site, matrix environment. CIPS ideally to level 6 or equivalent would be advantageous. Experience with SAP will also be a huge plus.


Although this is a UK-wide role, you should live within commuting distance of Huntingdon as you will be expected to visit the head office periodically.


So, if you are up for the challenge and believe you possess the necessary skills and experience to excel in this role, we would love to hear from you!

If so, then our client has the perfect opportunity for you. They are a well-established social housing provider with thousands of homes across multiple boroughs in West London. As part of their future plans, they are now looking to appoint a Procurement Manager to lead their procurement operations across the organisation. As part of this role, you will be responsible for:


* Setting the strategic direction of their commercial and procurement activities.

* Planning and supporting day-to-day operations.

* Identifying opportunities to reduce costs and ensure service quality improvement.

* Implementing best practice procurement techniques.


Specifically, you will lead the procurement contracts covering ongoing maintenance and repairs, kitchen/bathroom refurbishments, and general property upgrades. As such, you must understand and have experience dealing with public sector purchasing procedures such as JCT contracts.


In addition, you will also be responsible for internal procurement within the business, for example, IT and office equipment.


The ideal candidate will have significant experience in public sector procurement and a working knowledge of social housing or care home sectors. Strong leadership skills, excellent organisational capabilities and innovative thinking are essential for this role. You will also be comfortable working with stakeholders at all levels inside and outside the organisation.


This is a hybrid role split between working from home and our client's premises. They are based in West London with a tube station next to their offices and onsite parking, which should make for a relatively easy commute.


This is your chance to make a lasting impact on our client's operations while personally developing your skillset, so don't miss out and apply now.





£60000 - £70000 per annum Bonus Benefits



"Airfreight Sector Sales/New Business and Commercial Leader sought for established multimedia and exhibition business."


Salary £60-70000 Benefits


Location: Remote Working - Company HQ in South East



Are you a Sales Manager/ Director with experience in the air cargo industry? Are you ready for a new opportunity to take the reins of an established multi-media company that specialises in air freight?


Our client in Surrey may well have your perfect next role as their new Managing Director.


They've been in business for many years and have achieved great success in publishing hard copy and digital newspapers, newsletters, internet sites and selling stands at major transport logistic exhibitions. However, the original owners are now ready to retire, so they are looking for someone to take over the running of the business and develop it further.


Your fellow directors are all highly competent in their roles of Operations, Finance, Sales and Marketing, but they need someone with a strong sales skillset who can lead the team, network with the major advertising buyers and develop new key accounts.


The company has long-standing relationships with several of the world's largest airlines, airports, charter brokers and forwarders, particularly in the Middle East, USA and Europe, and is keen to build on these further.


Although they are based in Surrey, all the staff work remotely, so you'll need to have experience in managing remote teams. As for your background, you will know the sector well, having worked in the freight and logistics industry. Maybe you're now tired of all the travel involved in your current role but still want to keep your contacts and expand your network further.


Ideally, you will also have exhibition or media experience as you will need to be involved with the newspaper editor and freelance contributors to ensure they perform to the agreed service levels. However, it's more important that you have a strong sales track record and network within the international airfreight sector.


In return our client offers a competitive base salary and benefits package including a bonus linked to profit and the opportunity to become a Board Director in the future.


So, if you feel you'd like to take on this fascinating challenge, please indicate your interest by emailing your CV quoting reference LX 1178280 or call us on 01905 381 320.

£500 per day (via Umbrella Company) 12-18 month contract

Location: Hybrid/Remote - Sites in the South East/Home Counties & North West


When recruiting a role that involves the protection of critical UK infrastructure, there's a temptation to get all James Bond about it.

We could try and get your attention by saying things like, "Have you dreamed of protecting the nation and being a national hero or heroine"?

But, let's face it, you're a Senior IT Category Buying Specialist. And high-speed car chases around UK cities aren't usually part of the job. Unless you've just dropped your caramel latte in your lap, perhaps.

However, this is a crucial role for our client, a global player within the specialist energy, electricity and power generation sector. Our client is offering a 12-18 months contract to join their IT procurement team.

They're focused on improving efficiency in their global operations and making sure their data and systems are secure and robust.

As such, they want to strengthen their IT procurement team with the appointment of a category and procurement management professional into the role of Senior Buyer/Category Specialist - IT.


That's where you fit in. And you won't need a car that turns into a submarine.


Currently, their IT Infrastructure, Cyber Defence and Application Development are outsourced. So, your focus will be on next generation outsourcing with high levels of customer satisfaction as a key driver for our client's IT strategy.


Reporting to a Senior Category Manager, you will also work closely with the IT/Information Technology team, and your role will take on a UK and European perspective.


Core Aims:

  • Working across different departments, develop plans for the next few years that incorporate the crucial aims for the category and a list of actions to achieve these goals.
  • Build solid relationships with suppliers to ensure they understand your requirements and deliver on SLAs. Then, use those strong relationships to confidently challenge business partners to think and act differently, to be creative and open to new ideas and to explore new supply chain possibilities.
  • Contribute to the development of the Procurement function's capability by bringing your experience of best practices from other industries and employers.


The Ideal Person will possess the following qualifications, experience, skills and competencies:

  • Available imminently to commence a 12-18 months contract paying £500 per day via an Umbrella company.
  • A university degree and, ideally, CIPS (or equivalent) qualification
  • Experience working across global operations or multi-site environments and a keen sense of cultural awareness
  • Currently working within a high-security sector such as defence, nuclear, aerospace, marine, ministry of defence, utilities etc.
  • Understanding of the nuances of IT contracts.
  • A proven track record in value delivery, improvement activity and best practice development in IT procurement.
  • Understanding Information Technology markets, suppliers and technologies and how to leverage them for value for our client
  • Building IT sub-category and category strategies to describe how value will be delivered in the short, medium and long term
  • Negotiating with IT- suppliers to drive the right commercial and contractual outcomes
  • Building relationships internally and externally to enable you to be successful in your role and to contribute to the development of our client as a world-class procurement organisation
  • A thirst for knowledge, an inquisitive mindset and a drive for results.
  • Knowledge of Procurement systems and technologies and the ability to put operational measures in place to ensure contracts deliver brilliantly.

In return, our client offers a very competitive salary and blue-chip benefits package and the opportunity to develop your career within a market leader. The role is offered on a interim 12-18 month contract and hybrid/remote basis with regular visits to sites in the North West and Home Counties for cross-functional engagement.
