Make a career choice that counts
We are on a journey as an organisation. A journey to become more digitally focussed, hyper efficient and disruptors across the sectors in which we operate. Our strategy is set, our direction is clear. What comes next is what we love the most, applying our skills and experience to innovate, design, implement and deliver real business value, improve the way we operate, and give us the competitive edge to do great things for all the right reasons!
We need an incredible experienced procurement professional in order to deliver on our strategy, and we’re aiming high ourselves. Joining our well established team, you will be part of a team focussed on reducing and optimising external expenditure and ensuring adherence across Home Group. You will build relationships with other internal departments and suppliers to enhance operational performance.
So if you want to do awesome things in a brilliant team and work for an organisation that really makes a difference… join us at Home Group.
It’s the team’s unwritten rule that you attend the important appointments in life, be it your child’s school play, your partner’s graduation, or to get your new fridge delivered. You can elect to fit these around your working day or use your flexi to take the time off. Our focus is on getting the job done, not your working hours!
A bit about you
You will have experience of devising, implementing and ‘selling’ sourcing strategies, as well as experience of working in diverse and varied commodity fields – the HRD or Soft FM fields are particular areas of strength that would be an advantage.
Furthermore you will have experience of working with multifunctional teams to deliver optimal sourcing solutions which deliver significant and measureable benefits. You will be a proactive self-starter with successful negotiating and influencing skills.
Finally you will have knowledge of latest purchasing theory and practice including awareness of the latest e-procurement tools, and a CIPS qualification would be highly desirable.
There’s lots! Including: competitive salaries, 25 days paid holiday a year rising by 1 day per year up to 30 days, with the ability to purchase an extra 5 days, a contributory occupational money-purchase pension scheme with life assurance and long term disability insurance, salary sacrifice schemes including cycle, car, technology, heavily discounted AA membership, gyms and savings on high street stores, holidays and restaurants amongst many others.
