Cobalt Recruitment is working with one of the fastest-growing brands in UK real estate, and as part of this meteoric growth our client is looking to hire their very first head of procurement. Our client is looking for someone to act as a catalyst and connector between their Operations and Customer facing teams, to help to create an innovative, positive, and sustainable property management model.

Key responsibilities will include but not be limited to:

  • Taking the lead in driving forward procurement strategy and process;
  • Establishing the framework for qualifying external suppliers, and managing the approved supplier list;
  • Negotiating rates and terms across the UK;
  • Assisting with the prep work for specifications;
  • Conducting tendering processes from start to finish, and then managing these relationships at a national level;
