Arla’s Procurement department is strengthening its position towards the global Arla organisation through category based reporting lines and increasing the number of employees to deliver on the ambitious targets.

On behalf of our global organisation, we manage procurement activities of an annual spend of ~3.5 billion EUR. You will work out of Aarhus, Leeds, Düsseldorf or Stockholm and report to our Procurement Director.

Take charge of sourcing projects and manage stakeholders
As a procurement category manager, you have category responsibility for purchasing specific packaging products in the categories: corrugated, labels, cartons and bag in box.

  • Establish and develop optimal relationships with our suppliers and drive tenders
  • Proactively benchmark prices to ensure best custom value when our designs change using Ariba Sourcing Tool
  • Drive various projects, e.g. a colour optimisation project and a vendor managed inventory project

Strategic procurement experience with a flair for project management
You drive tasks proactively, fostering fruitful collaboration through strong relationships. Ready to hit the ground running, your ability to take the lead on projects is essential, just as you need your innovative and strategic way of thinking to be able to prioritise tasks. Lastly, you thrive working in a dynamic, multicultural environment, and you:

  • Hold an MBA degree or similar
  • Have solid purchasing experience as well as technical and economic knowledge
  • Have experience with strategic procurement, relationship management and project management
  • Are prepared to travel across Europe
