Category Manager – Direct Procurement (Machine Parts & C-parts)

Closing Date: 28th April 2019
Reports To: Head of global procurement
Position Summary:

About us

You may not be aware of Rotork, but we are one of the success stories of the South West. For over 60 years we have been a leading name in flow control across the world and a globally successful FTSE 250 organisation with a strong value based culture. We are embarking on a period of exciting change to significantly grow our business and consolidate our world-wide market leadership position.

About the role

The Global Procurement team at Rotork is in its infancy and we are looking for a Direct Category Manager to join us. You’ll work from a greenfield basis and quickly get to grips with the needs and supply demands of your categories, and will create and deliver a well-versed global sourcing strategy to optimise value, deliver proactive savings and social responsibility. You’ll firmly establish yourself as the procurement expert within Machine Parts and C-parts, with the long term aim of developing a supply-base to accelerate Rotork’s global expansion, and the internal network to unlock the opportunities that will flow from this.

About you

Having succeeded in a similar Category Manager role, you’ll come with bags of experience of tendering, negotiating and the management of Direct suppliers, contracts and outsourcing, including SLAs. You’ll ideally have both direct and indirect experience within a Global organisation and you’ll be proactive, self-motivated, work equally well independently and as part of the wider team and able to build and maintain relationships across the organisation. Fitting right in with our positive and tenacious team, this is an opportunity for you to make your mark in this brand new role.

This role can potentially be based in Manchester or Leeds.
