I am working on a role with a rapidly growing management consultancy, that specializes in cost and procurement transformation consultancy; working with major global brands, SMEs, charities and the public sector. They work with clients across many sectors including Retail, Luxury Goods, FMCG, Property and Manufacturing, and they are becoming very well-known for their excellent services within the field.


Due to the continued growth, they are looking for a Procurement Manager – Food Manufacturing/Ingredients to join the dynamic team, based in Bucks.


Reporting into the Senior Procurement Manager for Ingredients and Packaging and be overseen by the Head of Procurement, you would be responsible for:

  • Formulating, leading and managing cross-functional teams to achieve cost reduction targets while ensuring supply reliability and satisfying business requirements
  • The delivery of multiple projects (across various categories of spend)
  • Managing the end-to-end procurement process
  • Monitoring and managing supplier performance using Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) techniques
  • Negotiating and implementing contracts and supporting SLA’s/KPI’s


They are very people focused and believe they have a very different approach where their clients, their stakeholders and their supply chain are at the heart of all that they do.


The successful candidate will have procurement/supply chain experience, in an ingredients or blue chip background; with an interest to get into more strategic category management (starting with ingredients) would be ideal. Pure ingredients experience isn’t essential, but a keen interest and strong procurement background is crucial.


There is a massive scope for progression within this role, as the role develops you will have the opportunity to develop into wider areas of procurement within the business.


This role will be based in the High Wycombe area (25 minute train from London) and will pay up to £43k with benefits.
