This is a fantastic opportunity for an ambitious Buyer to play a key role as part of a complex Procurement Transformation programme for a market leading Retail brand, supporting a wider business transformation following significant growth and associated M&A activities! The role offers a fast track career development programme with a clear road map to a Sourcing Manager role within 18 - 24 months.

Role:

  • You will play an integral role supporting a £400m spend across FM, Construction, Property & CAPEX for a leading FTSE 100 Retail giant - supporting new store development, warehouses, corporate offices and extensive refurbishment initiatives

  • You will also provide support to Corporate Office Portfolio - this includes Hard and Soft FM sourcing projects spanning M&E, Lighting, HVAC, Cleaning, Catering, Vending and Janitorial services for the entire group portfolio

This is a fast moving environment within which the buyer will be expected to balance and support a number of different Store Fit-Out, Construction and Maintenance sourcing projects at any time.

Due to the on-going procurement change programme, this is an excellent opportunity for a hungry and ambitious candidate seeking fast track career development.
