Since the pandemic the procurement industry has undergone a drastic change. Closing businesses and disrupted supply chains forced us to collaborate and deliver innovative solutions to never-before-seen problems. My client was at the forefront of this innovation. Instead of reducing their costs, they invested, allowing them not only to survive, but flourish.

Since 2021 they have experienced exponential growth, accelerating them to market-leader, and a reputation as a renowned global construction firm. Despite over 100,000 employees across 120 countries, they are still looking to expand, and now wish to take multiple ambitious Construction Procurement Category Specialists to support some on the most high-value projects across the globe.

They are offering you the chance to join an established team where you will gain extensive end-to-end exposure across Construction, Infrastructure, Engineering and Procurement Transformation projects. My client is passionate about building a procurement function for the future, so sustainability and renewable energy sit at the forefront of their vision. Such exposure is invaluable in your development and will allow you to fast-track what is traditionally a slow climb up the procurement progression ladder, with previous placements moving into senior procurement positions within 12-18 months.

As a Construction Procurement Category Specialist, you will:

  • Support the development and implementation of category strategies helping to streamline the existing procurement process.
  • Use your market insight to unlock opportunities for growth, pitching your ideas to key stakeholders and executives to garner support for your development plans.
  • Deliver on a number of traditional procurement activities - including, but not limited to Strategic Sourcing, Contracting, and Supplier Relationship Management.

Construction Procurement Category Specialist requirements:

  • Good exposure across end-to-end procurement projects. This would have been acquired through working on high-value Construction, Engineering, or Energy projects.
  • Strong academic background (Degree + CIPS) is ideal.
  • NEC/FIDIC/JCT contract experience is essential.
  • Demonstratable experience in managing stakeholder and supplier relationships.

My client is offering flexible working, where you time in office is dependant on your location and ability to travel. They are passionate about providing a platform for procurement professionals to develop their career while maintaining a work-life balance.

Procurement candidates must have full rights to work in the UK and be 100% business fluent in English.
