What does the role involve?
Your work starts with the strategy of your group of commodities. It provides you with the fact base. It also globally aligns your project pipeline to improve performance and productivity. Key Procurement projects are then in your direct and your team`s responsibility, together with the regions and the corporate functions. In combination with the projects you develop the team.
There can be bumpy roads as we procure many "emotional" products and services. So, although we are starting to be established, you need a broad personal portfolio to earn your seat at the table of the executive decision makers. Your ability to bring across complex ideas effectively - both verbally and in writing - is important.
What you need is:
Master degree preferably in industrial engineering or in engineering and business administration
Minimum of 5 years of experience in an international consultancy or industrial company
Strategic mind-set with result orientation and intellectual curiosity
Effective team player and networker capable to drive projects in a global matrix structure
Strong facilitation, negotiation and communication skills
Fluent in English and German
