As a business partner and first point of contact for procurement, you are expected to have great stakeholder management skills in developing local relationships and have the ability to drive change management in a diverse stakeholder landscape. This also implies that you are self-driven and can deliver results independently.

You will act as the procurement business partner for key local stakeholders and together with the global organisation ensure implementation of procurement best practice and global category strategies. You are expected to be bold and innovative in identifying new business opportunities and take full advantage of the opportunities provided by the global procurement organisation – Additionally, you understand and can take into account the start-up mentality embedded in the mySugr.

  • Align procurement initiatives with local priorities via networking and effective stakeholder management
  • Alignment with Global category managers as appropriate for the implementation and communication of the global strategies at mySugr
  • Conduct operational reviews of mySugr purchases to ensure compliance with relevant purchasing processes

Furthermore, you are comfortable with a high degree of autonomy, as you will be the sole representative for indirect procurement in mySugr.

Essential skills for your mission:
