I've partnered with an award-winning children's cosmetics brand to recruit a Procurement Manager in their innovative procurement function.

Since launching into key retailers back in 2014, they have gone from experienced incredible growth and consistently won awards, ahead of the global industry leading brands! The products are now available in over 7500 distribution points across the UK and have begun growing their international presence across Australia and Ireland. Listed as the Grocers 'SME of the Year 2019 and 9th Fastest growing business in the UK, this is an unrivalled opportunity to join one of the most progressive organizations in the cosmetics industry.

  • Cross functional collaboration with the NPD, marketing and wider supply chain teams

  • Category Strategy: Managing the suppliers and develop and execute the procurement category strategy

  • Sustainability: Providing advice on risks and opportunities to drive best practice decision making. This role will also play a lead role in the sustainability and ethical policies ensuring responsibility across production and operations

  • Buying: Management of the raw materials category, buying components to make the products (raw materials to packaging and goods/ services)

The Procurement Manager will have:

  • An entrepreneurial mindset - the ability to pick up a project and deliver

  • A demonstrated track record delivering cost savings and developing/executive strategy across packaging and raw materials

  • The ability to work well independently but also thrive in cross functional collaboration with wider business units
