About The Opportunity
Strategy. Future-focus. Growth. Scale. Change.
It’s all about people.
Have you got what it takes to establish the principles that drive an organisation’s approach to purchasing...? We are not yet perfectly shaped for the future - and this is your opportunity to change it.
This is the leading procurement role in a UK Top 40 Construction & Civil Engineering business. You are therefore likely to be motivated by a core factor in your job – the autonomy to help an organisation change.
You will hold strategic and operational responsibility for the purchases of all goods and services across the Group, so you are really able to add leverage to our purchasing capability. Likely to already be working at Head of Procurement/Procurement Director/Chief Procurement Officer/Supply Chain Director level, you may well have ‘hit the ceiling’ in your current organisation - or are perhaps looking for a sideways move into an organisation of our size, that will offer you a different kind of 'expansion challenge'.
If you are looking for predictability or consistency in your next move – this won’t be for you. We are on a steep growth curve and need you to help steer us through the new challenges this has created
You are a shaper, a nurturer, a strategist. You understand how to get the best out of people to unlock bigger-company solutions through human engagement and exceptional relationship-building with the most influential people in your supply-chain. You work collaboratively with your internal teams to achieve results – because they are the very people who have worked to get our organisation to where it is today.
Careys expenditure with suppliers has significant capacity for creating increased profit margin - but the current approach to buying limits our ability to consolidate and leverage purchasing potential. Your influencing supplier relationships at a strategic level will see Careys viewed as a ‘customer of choice’ that collaborates through mutually beneficial supplier partnerships, that nurture innovation, value and openness.
Our newly refurbished Head Office in Wembley has a number of on-site facilities, including a staff gym, free breakfast, staff restaurant with subsidised lunches and is 10 minutes walking from the nearest tube station.
We offer a Flexible benefits package tailored to your requirements and opportunities to be involved in ongoing charity fundraising initiatives through the Careys Foundation.
We cultivate innovation - encourage ideas - nurture a sense of belonging - challenge the status quo.
We do things differently.
