Independent Procurement Consultancy  Warwickshire  earning potential to £120K OTE

We are a rapidly expanding procurement consulting business based in the Midlands, serving blue chip and large businesses throughout the UK.

We operate differently to anyone else in our sector because we’ve redefined the procurement role.  We know that by dissecting the role into several specialisms and maintaining a tight team mentality, we achieve far greater results than a single “procurement expert” could ever do.

That’s why we look to employ the best of the best for every element of the procurement job – the best project managers, the best financial analysts, the best administrators, the best strategists, the best negotiators ….

Our team has bundles of energy and enthusiasm because we play to each individual’s strengths.  Each member of the team is tenacious, courageous, curious, passionate and enthusiastic.

We offer flexible working, a supportive, cohesive team approach and an environment that allows each individual to perform at the top of their game.

In return we expect each person to be a true authority in their own area, take ownership for their responsibilities, be accountable for their actions and results, and collude with team members to deliver truly outstanding performance for our clients.

We are growing and currently have the following requirements:-
