Work type: Full Time - Permanent
Location: Gaydon, Warwickshire

Passionate about the automotive industry and its intricate workings? As a firm believer in Procurement's pivotal role, understanding the impact of a well-crafted strategy is key.

Stepping into the role of Senior Manager of Procurement, as a key part of the Procurement Leadership Team, you'll navigate the full procurement lifecycle within your designated business domain. As a hands-on leader, championing a culture of leading by example and driving meaningful change is what fuels your passion.

To excel in this role, you'll need to build strong collaborative relationships across all areas of the business, understand different internal customer needs, and communicate clearly and concisely to tailored audiences.

Working with a team of talented procurement professionals, your day-to-day activities will include leading and managing your area of the team and defining structure and governance to achieve business objectives. You'll also coach and mentor the team to deliver short, medium, and long-term goals aligned with AML's strategic direction. Additionally, you'll build strong supplier relationships, develop supplier strategies, and lead cross-functional teams to ensure the company's goals are met.

You'll help develop a strong, strategic procurement team and continuously seek process improvement opportunities in conjunction with the wider Senior Manager team. You’ll liaise closely with Finance to align procurement targets and results with corporate reporting.

You're not the type to shy away from challenges, and this role isn't for someone who isn't willing to take on responsibilities and strive for excellence. However, in this role, you'll have the chance to make a significant impact, deal with complex procurement issues, and be part of a high-performing team.

As a Senior Manager you'll relish the opportunity to professionally develop and maintain supplier agreements that contribute to the long-term profitability of Aston Martin. This role is instrumental in the company's success and offers an exciting opportunity for a motivated individual like you.
