An incomparable graduate opportunity to gain a place on the 'Future Leaders Procurement Programme' with a global business.

The graduate programme is sponsored at the highest level of the business and you will become part of a dynamic working environment with plenty of opportunities to grow and develop over the two-year programme. During this time, you will have significant exposure to senior stakeholders globally and the opportunity to 'fast track' your career whilst working on multiple high-profile Procurement projects.

You will benefit from a world-class learning and development programme to help develop you personally and professionally and be assigned a mentor that is not directly related to your professional role, to provide a strong support structure outside of your direct colleagues and peers.

In the first year, you will work on skills such as stakeholder management and presentations, while in the second year you will move on to focus on managerial training.

The role will largely be a remote working role, though there are significant opportunities to travel globally as part of the role. What's more, you will have the option to be based in a different country for your second year if desired, whether that is within Europe, or the US depending on project focus. The client has 300+ offices based in over 30 countries.

The role:

  • You will be heavily involved in the Global Supplier Strategy deployment plan
  • You will work closely with the Global and European Procurement teams to develop and implement supplier strategy that supports our multi-year roadmaps

You will Learn:

  • Global Procurement strategy and gain a deep understanding of:
    • Global Tendering
    • Carriers Onboarding and Carriers
    • Supplier governance and Risk Management
    • Sustainability within Procurement

You will have:

  • Up to two years of work experience, in any sector or role
  • A desire to join the fast-paced and diverse global business
  • Strong desire for a career in procurement
  • Excellent command of written and spoken English
