This department has a strategic function (rather than being an operational team), so you would have a real opportunity to help us make a difference in:
As a department aiming for continuous improvement and delivering best value for money, our culture encourages innovation and entrepreneurial thinking… and there is plenty of autonomy!
As a Commodity Manager, you would have the opportunity to devise and drive through long term purchasing strategies, improvement projects and cost saving initiatives which ensures the business meets is quality, cost and delivery targets. You would also negotiate and produce, sometimes very complex, commercial contracts to ensure Marley maintains the highest level of professional ethics and integrity particularly with regards to sustainability and responsible purchasing.
We have a real commitment to teamwork, training and personal development. Cross-functional working is vital for ensuring purchasing strategies successfully deliver the overall company objectives. The Commodity Managers are therefore expected to work very closely with both internal stakeholders and suppliers alike.
