A multinational FMCG business with a strategic procurement office in Hong Kong is currently looking for a Procurement Manager to help drive and implement the strategies for procurement in Asia.
You will be proactively driving global procurement projects in collaboration with global procurement category managers and being the key person in dealing with suppliers in Asia including China and some low-cost countries. This will include negotiating directly with suppliers, establishing long-term partnerships with them and managing their performance.
Specifically the role is going to be focusing on technical categories. It is ideal that the candidate has some experience in handling technical / engineering-related categories such as CAPEX, components and spare parts, although this is not mandatory as long as you possess strong negotiation skills, a strategic sourcing mindset, an eye for detail and an interest in technical specifications.
Full proficiency in both Mandarin and English is required as you will be frequently working with suppliers in China and collaborating with colleagues from overseas offices.
