  • Maintain up-to-date supply market expertise in the categories, ensuring the team is seen as trusted, go-to experts and finding market-leading opportunities and innovations.
  • Maintain positive working relationships with all stakeholders, ensuring procurement has support and buy-in from stakeholders, whilst still constructively challenging and testing the status quo and always exploring alternative ways of doing things.
  • Ensuring Strategic Sourcing plans are in place for all categories
