Procurement Category Manager for professional services- Aarhus

Can you combine a solid commercial understanding with a keen interest for professional services to create value for our dairies in a global market? We are on the lookout for a Category Manager who can strengthen our strategic approach in this area and enable global alignment with our business units. Join Arla’s Global Procurement team, spread across Denmark, Sweden, Germany, the Netherlands and the UK. On behalf of our global organization we manage procurement activities of an annual spend of DKK 22 billion. You will work out of Aarhus and report to our Procurement Director.

Define our approach to purchasing professional services globally
Your objective will be to set and drive the strategic procurement agenda for professional services in Arla Foods. In this way, you will play a key role in creating one clearly defined approach for selecting and collaborating with stakeholders – internally as well as externally, no matter where they are situated in the world. To this end, you will have close interaction with senior stakeholders in the global as well as local Business Groups in Arla Foods.

In detail, you will ensure that we have a competitive approach all the way from tender to signing of contract in a range of different areas, including HR, Finance, Legal and Management Consultants. Naturally, highest quality at lowest cost and lowest risk will be on top of your agenda during the entire process. Last but not least, you will focus on building a strong foundation for smooth and efficient collaborative processes and define how we proactively deal with challenges that might jeopardize compliance levels.

Master’s degree and category management experience
Your background probably covers a commercial degree at master’s level, supplemented with experience from a similar position as Category Manager. Experience purchasing professional services will be considered an advantage, but not a requirement. Whether you have worked at an international company or perhaps a consultancy company, you have acquired strong project management skills driving processes, including negotiating and landing contract agreements.

You have equally sharpened your senior stakeholder management skills, and as a result you know exactly how to approach and secure buy-in from demanding and challenging stakeholders. This also calls for a sound business understanding, an open mindset and the ability to level your communication directly to your audience.

Possessing these qualities, you master the discipline of developing strong relations to different stakeholders across cultural borders. Personally, you recognize yourself as a self-propelled change agent with a strong drive and positive attitude, and you clearly get your energy from achieving your goals. Finally, you have advanced skills in written and spoken English.

If you want to seize this exciting opportunity, please apply as soon as possible. Applications will be reviewed on an ongoing basis until the right candidate is found.
