Are you an experienced technology procurement leader who wants to work with one of the most well-revered brands in the world?

If so, this could be the perfect opportunity for you!

I'm looking for a Global Head of Technology Procurement to join this infamous brand on a permanent basis.

You'll be responsible for leading the procurement and vendor management process for their global technology spend in all categories. This is a diverse and complex role, with a large number of stakeholders across various business units.

Here are some more details on the role:

  • You will own, develop and execute the short, mid and long term technology category strategy with the support of a dispersed global team and a proactive technology leadership team.
  • You will focus on developing strong stakeholder relationships across all segments of the business - refining previous brownfield relationships and developing new greenfields ones that are aligned to the businesses and stakeholders goals and priorities.
  • You will work in close conjunction with global and regional technology stakeholders and the CIO to develop and deliver a market leading group technology roadmap.
  • You will oversee the management of the day-to-day procurement, supplier management, spend analysis, tendering and strategic sourcing process.
  • You will manage key strategic supplier relationships across their global portfolio.

To succeed in this role, you will have:

  • A strong background in leading end-to-end technology sourcing and supplier management processes - encompassing as broad a range of subcategories as possible.
  • You will have previously worked for a large blue-chip organisation with a broad matrix stakeholder group where you have had to persuade and influence senior stakeholders.
  • A keen interest in, understanding of and penchant to remain up to date on technologies and their impact on global business is essential.
  • An analytical mindset and a keen eye for detail, familiar with conducting spend analysis and reporting activities and then using these to develop strategic plans and roadmaps.
  • Previous experience managing a technology spend portfolio in excess of $500 million.
  • A results-driven attitude, focused on proactively solving problems and working in close conjunction with your suppliers and stakeholders to drive forward progress.
  • Masters/MBA educated or relevant equivalent experience.
  • Willingness to travel nationally and internationally semi-regularly.
