Procurement Category Manager, IT - Aarhus
Do you have profound experience with category management and technical interest and are you looking for a job where you have international responsibility and high impact?
If so, this is your opportunity to join Arla’s Procurement team and be part of an exciting transformation journey and create value for our dairies globally. Arla’s Procurement department is strengthening its position towards the global Arla organization through category based reporting lines and is increasing the number of employees to deliver on the ambitious targets.
Join Arla’s Procurement team, spread across Denmark, Sweden, Germany, the Netherlands, UK, Poland and Hong Kong. On behalf of our global organisation we manage procurement activities of an annual spend of ~3.5 billion EUR. You will work out of Aarhus and report to our Procurement Director.
You drive the IT procurement strategy
As Procurement Manager for IT you will handle the steadily increasing global spend for IT procurement across business groups primarily in our core markets in Europe. Together with the rest of the IT council handling our IT spend you will manage a broad range of stakeholders and suppliers – each with their specific demands and requests. In detail, you will:
- develop, implement and co-head the IT procurement category strategy
- secure rational and cost-effective vendor agreements
- create professional and profitable relations with suppliers.
Together with the IT department and your colleagues in IT Procurement you secure the very best contracts that will positively impact the bottom line for Arla Foods. You will have a challenging and stimulating job where you will be in very close dialogue and create a sustainable and long-lasting relationship with your stakeholders.
Agile, analytical and ambitious
Your personal attitude and professional approach is much more important for us than your formal background and experience. Nevertheless, you probably hold a commercial degree at master’s level and have probably added a few years’ experience. Of course, if you have already perfected your knowledge within IT procurement it will be a major advantage. However, we attach much more importance to the way you solve the assignments and create success for the company. This imposes very high demands on your visions and ambitions as well as your flexible mindset. In addition, you are analytical and agile, and you take pride in finalising your tasks in time and in perfect quality. Lastly, you speak and write English proficiently.
