Procurement Category Manager - Automotive Aftermarket

Berkshire, Permanent role

Basic salary £45k to £55k + 10% bonus and excellent benefits

The Role

Joining a dynamic team, the successful candidate will develop category strategies, primarily focused on aftersales, consistent with overall procurement objectives, in order to manage sourcing, contract management and supplier development effectively. 30/40% of time will be supplier facing, and they will be responsible for building strategies and plans to ensure the right volume is given to the right suppliers at the right price and to review these plans on an ongoing basis. They will need to develop credibility with the wider team, to influence them to follow best practice procurement and understand the potential of a joined approach and the ‘bigger picture.’ Ultimately, they will deliver real bottom-line savings to the business and monitor their delivery with the finance department.

The Company

Is a leading brand in mobility and environmentally focused fleet provision. At the forefront of an ambitious ‘zero emissions’ agenda they have been investing heavily for years in ensuring their product portfolio enables their clients top achieve their own sustainability goals while keeping them mobile and able to deliver their ‘business as usual’ through their vehicle fleets. Often owing to internal promotion, they create opportunities for ambitious talent to join their career development programmes, receiving great training and personal development in return for hard work and delivery.

About You

The successful candidate will have had a track record in procurement category management in a blue-chip procurement environment, ideally within the automotive sector and will have experience of procuring a wide range of products, services and commodities. This will include a proven track record in cost analysis and delivery of real cost reduction, as well as in influencing and managing stakeholders. Energy, drive and resilience to challenge existing ways of working and create competition within the team will be essential and talent and ambition to succeed is as important as experience for the right candidate.

Alternatively, this client will consider candidates from the automotive sector in a closely related discipline that have strong negotiation, and stakeholder management / influencing experience. Aftersales / aftermarket experience will be an advantage.
