Senior FM Procurement Category Manager - Hard & Soft FM Services.

1st Executive is currently recruiting on behalf of a market-leading Engineering firm who has an exciting opportunity available in their Senior Leadership Team for an FM Procurement Specialist.

This represents a fantastic opportunity to join a fast-growing business, widely recognised as one of the leaders in their field, during a massive transformation of their procurement function. You will be operating as the head of your division and working closely with the Directors to deliver a change programme across FM Spend.


The role will be focused on heading up the Hard and Soft FM category spend (approx ?150m) for a major division of the business covering all strategic sourcing, contract implementation, management and compliance. You will focus on the promotion of best practice across the spend, much of which is greenfield, while leading, advising and developing a team of senior buyers and analysts.

The successful candidate will ideally be operating with complete autonomy while embracing additional pockets of FM spend from other divisions. This additional spend responsibility is brand new and has never been addressed before, as a result you will be expected to analyse, devise and implement a strategy across the additional spend of approx ?250m.


- Strong track record of delivering savings for Hard and Soft FM procurement, ideally having worked with greenfield spend.
- Excellent communication skills with a strong gravitas - experience working with Senior Stakeholders, including director and C-Level execs, will be highly beneficial.
- Demonstrable experience working within a complex blue chip environment
- Ideally educated to degree level or CIPS qualified, but not essential.
