Senior Buyer - Indirect Procurement

Senior Buyer - Indirect Procurement


3-4 month contract (Outside IR35)


Up to £200 a day


Our client is a building supplier that was acquired by an investment fund in March 2020.

They deliver complete ceiling solutions with unsurpassed levels of value, quality and reliability, redefine expectations and reinvent environments, to make every one of our customers' projects a success.


They are now looking for a Senior Buyer as Indirect Procurement hasn't been looked at properly in a long-time and needs a general refresh to improve internal processes, value for money and ensure they have the right suppliers across 4 or 5 commodity areas.

A particular focus is professional services e.g.

HR, waste management and consultancy.


Responsibilities will include:



  • Review current suppliers in relevant categories and formalise arrangements if required

  • Where current suppliers are not best placed to support requirements, go out to the market to identify and contract with relevant suppliers

  • Work with the business to draw up specifications

  • Run the procurement exercise from end to end - plan and deliver commodity strategies and contracts (e.g.

    frameworks with call off)


Essential skills & experience will include:



  • Strong indirect procurement skills & experience

  • Ability to plan & deliver commodity strategies with a clear process around this

  • Manufacturing industry experience is useful but not essential.

    The client would like a broad industry background - not a manufacturing specialist
