Lead the procurement in a strategic important region

The company is looking for an enthusiastic manager to take on the role as Regional Purchasing Manager for two important regions. You will become part of the Purchasing Operations management team and will report to the Purchasing Director who is geographically located in Denmark. You will manage your team of 9 FTEs, located in both Denmark and other countries.

Excellent managerial skills and strategic mindset

As a Regional Purchasing Manager entrusted with the responsibility for two regions, your primary role is to assume a solid managerial position, ensuring the optimal functioning of the teams within these regions. Regular collaboration with a diverse range of stakeholders at the factories in your jurisdiction is a key aspect of this role. Notably, you will engage closely with senior leadership in the regions, including the Managing Director, Finance Director, and others.

Additionally, you will take on the task of crafting comprehensive roadmaps for various initiatives across the regions, ensuring their successful execution. Your role goes beyond mere management; it involves fostering collaboration, encouraging teamwork, and aligning initiatives with the broader goals of the regions.

You bring solid experience from a supply chain or procurement/purchasing function, and you have extensive experience in working strategically and communicating with CXO-level stakeholders.

As a person, you are proactive and curious to take on an important change management role in creating and maintaining the road map of the future frame for purchasing.
