Strategic Category Manager – London

Growing Health/Medical major

GBP50k – GBP60k + Bonus

Our client is a growing London hospital with a core non–pay annual spend which will top GBP200m by 2020 and plan to invest and increase their Clinical Procurement specialisation by building a team of Senior Catgory Managers with a background in setting category strategies and leading teams to successful delivery of associated projects.

The role will involve building a pipeline of suppliers and vendors across the UK and Europe from which to establish a strong, long–lasting working relationship so that the key and relevant internal stakeholders (surgeons, clinicians) will have the necessary equipment and tools to deliver world–class medical services.

Whilst experience within this category is not a must, the successful candidate must show exceptional leadership qualities and stakeholder management skills. The role holder will have 3 direct reports comprised of a category manager and two senior buyers which you will guide and mentor according to their professional development plan.

Our client desires a procurement professional with..

  • Leadership skills – someone that has led large or small teams to successful completion of end–to–end strategic procurement projects
  • Track record of delivering projects on time and impressive savings
  • A strong practical knowledge of public sector procurement including NHS or Local Authority, especially within the OJEU framework
  • Exceptional stakeholder management skills
  • Knowledge of tendering platforms such as Oracle, SAP and Ariba

This is an exceptional opportunity to showcase your leadership and mentoring abilities and capabiltities and take true accountability for the successful delivery of projects within the assigned category.
