Your role

This is not a typical Procurement position!  As a Global Sourcing Director within our Digital and IT procurement team, you are leading more than sourcing activities for critical business-led digital projects such as Product Development driven by digitalization or large scale Data Analytics programs.  You embed yourself in project teams and leverage your sourcing and digital expertise to act as a consultant, bring maket experience view, ensure the group gets best value for its money and ultimately strongly contribute to make these projects sucessful.  You define and execute customized sourcing strategies for these projects and build strong partnerships with selected suppliers.  You're not shy in disputing project requierments, suggesting alternative and new ideas to achieve project goals.  If you believe that Procurement can contribute to the sucess of a company far more than simply delivering savings, and are eager to explore new ways of creating value, apply now!
