Let's Talk About You

You’re ambitious, but you want a career with purpose—we love that. You’re up for a challenge and ready to write the next chapter of your career story with a great group of encouraging colleagues. You want to make your mark and let your personality shine. Well, if you’re interested in our newly created Procurement Manager (Third Party Manufacturing) role, this might be your next step! This is a great choice for an ambitious doer, maker and innovator, especially since it requires an exciting European focus. While it may sound cliché, we’re looking for a ‘game changer’, someone with strong Category Procurement experience to join Edgewell Personal Care – a global consumer goods business with a portfolio of over 25 brands (Wilkinson Sword, Hawaiian Tropic, Carefree, Bulldog Skincare for Men and recently acquired Jack Black… just to name a few!).

Now, Let’s Get Down to Business

You will be reporting to the Regional Procurement Director (based in the UK), and the successful candidate will be responsible for the overall budgeting, planning, procurement, and management for all Third Party Manufacturing (TPM) activities in Europe. There will be a specific focus on creating strategic category plans, business continuity procedures, service level management, cost optimisation and innovation —so if you have ideas, we want to hear them! The right person for this role will work closely with regional teams so a good communicator is a must. If there’s one thing you’ll get here at Edgewell, it’s a collaborative group full of likeable, diverse and nurturing colleagues. They’re an inspiring bunch. While your experience is of course important, we’re all about making useful things joyful, so we love when our prospective candidates are passionate about this too.

Are You Ready to Show Us What You’ve Got?

Ideally you will have Third Party Manufacturing or similar experience gained within a commercial business. In addition, it would be great if you have the following skills and experience:

  • Significant procurement management experience, ideally in Third Party Manufacturing or similar
  • Strong understanding of basic principles of accounting and business/contract law
  • Demonstrated experience in developing business requirements, category analysis, administer appropriate vendor acquisition tools (RFQ/ RFP)
  • Experience in Global Strategic Sourcing – Direct Materials or Finished Goods
  • Knowledge and use of eProcurement and eSourcing methodology
  • Familiarity with outsourcing, vendor management and service level agreements
  • Ability to influence and make bold decisions
  • Flexible and able to work autonomously with diverse cultures across different time zones
