Description:
This position is based in France , but our client is global and a major manufacturing company, seeking a procurement professional for their operations in France. One role is based in the north around Paris, the other is based in the Alsace region with responsibility for supporting the sourcing activity relating to a range of direct commodities, including metal stampings and finished articles.
Key activities include: identification of savings opportunities and process efficiencies within the site; tendering of business contracts through the E-Auction process and the management of suppliers in line with defined auction policy and strategy; developing & embedding eAuction processes within the sites; maintaining knowledge of market trends, market conditions of commodities assigned, and recommend changes in strategic sourcing plans and tactics based on such knowledge.
Comprehensive training will be provided on all of the eSourcing tools required to fulfil the role.
This is not just another buying role, my client is seeking an innovative individual who takes the view that KPIs are there to be exceeded and not just met, somebody who is continuously thinking outside of the box and investigating new and better ways of doing things.
Clearly a fluent French speaker is sought for the role, with other languages a plus.
This represents an exciting career opportunity for an ambitious procurement professional. Ideally you should have at least 2 years post-qualification experience, although consideration will be given to recent, French speaking, graduates with a 'strong' desire to enter the procurement profession.
