I am working with a forward-thinking organisation that has multiple sites throughout the UK. Due to significant expansion and growth they are recruiting for a Head of Procurement. Based in Solihull, you will have management of a small team and be responsible for developing and establishing a procurement strategy, acting as a partner and consultant on procurement initiatives and implementing and identifying cost savings.

This is a really exciting opportunity to develop and drive a procurement department - pretty much a blank canvass role! In return, you will receive a salary of circa £65,000 to £75,000 + Benefits.
