Execute and manage supplier commercial and performance activity for your portfolio with input to the wider purchasing team.


Recognised for their powerful brands and industry leadership, this organisation continues to grow expanding in New Zealand and offshore.  A major public company, their roles are interesting and rewarding, career paths stimulating, and the workplace is fast paced, globally benchmarked and best practice.


As the lead person for your category, you will be responsible for ensuring uninterrupted supply of quality products and services to your national customer locations.  This includes managing supply planning, buying, category management and procurement processes as well as systems enhancements.  Whilst the focus is on your allocated business area, there will be visibility and responsibility across wider company procurement and supply chain activities.  This position requires high interaction with colleagues and stakeholders.  The variety of the role will have you contributing to your portfolio strategy, analysing industry and product trends, preparing and reviewing supplier contracts, as well as managing risk and contingency plans.


Experience as a planning or procurement leader in FMCG, QSR, beverages or facility services is a good alignment where the workplace has complexity and is fast moving.  Highly effective negotiation, communication and influencing skills will complement your analytical and commercial ability.  You build strong relationships inside and outside your business and work collaboratively to achieve goals.  Taking an entrepreneurial and nimble approach works well for you and you apply strategic thinking to deliver the best results.
