Our client is a global FMCG business with an extremely rich history. It is a very recognised brand within the UK, that is only continuing to grow and develop.


They are looking for a Local Category Manager to join the Global Indirect procurement team to work on their greenfield packaging projects. The team is made up of people based in the UK, China, Poland, India, Brazil and Thailand.


International experience is not a pre-requisite, so if you are UK-focused and looking to move to a role that expands your European and Global remit, this is a perfect next step!


You will be responsible for developing and implementing category strategies to maximise value for money across their new and developing packaging suppliers. You will be working in a matrix organisation structure and will collaborate with key stakeholders across the business.


As the successful candidate you will ideally be degree-qualified, and CIPS would be a significant plus. You will have a proven track record of working in Packaging Procurement as well as having a good understanding of the end to end procurement process, including negotiations, supplier and stakeholder relationship management and contract law. You will also be willing and able to travel both within the UK and internationally, in particular to visit suppliers and take part in activities and training courses.
