ConnectedGroup is partnering with a well-known multinational Consumer Goods business with a huge manufacturing presence in mainland China. The company has recently promoted a Procurement Manager to another role in the organization and is currently on the lookout for a strong replacement.
In this role you will be handling a huge spend size and portfolio, specifically for the packaging materials category. The requirement for technical knowledge of packaging, especially packaging raw materials, is strong, as the role is going to be very commodity-based and involve plenty of analysis work. This is a unique opportunity for someone who enjoys deep-diving into a specific commodity and researching it in depth, and subsequently leveraging that knowledge to negotiate with suppliers and advise internal stakeholders.
To be considered for the role, you must be experienced in packaging materials procurement. Experience and knowledge in packaging raw materials (e.g. PET resins) will be a huge advantage, however we can also consider candidates who are more generalist packaging procurement managers. Consumer goods industry experience is not mandatory.
We are open to speaking with candidates with limited experience in procurement but possess strong knowledge of packaging or packaging raw materials.
You must speak fluent Mandarin as the role involves frequent communication with suppliers in mainland China.
