We can recruit candidates who are flexible and adaptable to assist with resource gaps, business transformation, executive mentoring and start-up situations.

interim

From time to time companies will face a challenge that requires someone with experience in a specific area. If the relevant experience does not already exist within the organisation then an interim executive can be a cost-effective way of bringing in the right skills to meet that challenge. 

Interim executives come from a diverse range of industry sectors and have the flexibility and adaptability to understand an organisation and the way it functions within a short space of time. They will work with the senior management team to ensure that all key players have a clear vision of how to meet their shared goal. In many cases, once a project has been completed under the aegis of an interim executive, that person will maintain a watching brief to ensure that any on-going issues can be dealt with efficiently and effectively.

The benefits of an interim executive can be summarised as an excellent value, low risk approach using a professional manager who offers a high level of commitment and experience for a fixed term and at a known cost. The need to urgently fill short-gaps in senior management can be created by a host of situations from unforeseen departures to business turnaround, project management or merger and acquisition.

· Develop warehouse operation systems by determining product handling and storage requirements.
· Developing, implementing, and enforcing policies and procedures such as receiving products, equipment, utilisation, inventory management and shipping.
· Accuracy of stock holding, excellent cost control and budgetary management will be critical to success so you must already be very familiar with compiling and managing budgets and forecasts.

The Ideal Candidate:
* To succeed in this role, you will have a good standard of education with previous experience of managing an inhouse or third-party contract logistics distribution centre/warehouse operations team including significant experience of managing first line managers/supervisors/team leaders.
* This must include proven people management skills including recruitment of core and agency staff, training, team development, maximising performance, improving motivation and productivity.

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.

  • 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.
