The last head of procurement was promoted to a regional role, you could be next.

In this role you would be leading all procurement categories for a large food production operation and would have the opportunity to make real positive changes to earn that promotion. Reporting into the APAC Head of Procurement you would get all the face time and support you need.

You will cover end to end procurement in this plant handling a spend of 150mil USD so you are the function decision maker. Categories would include packaging, plastics, chemicals, MRO/CAPEX and other services to support the production operations. If you have a good knowledge of Ariba & ERP systems, this would come in handy as well.

Some skills you should have to support you are a good understanding off the Supply Chain as a whole, they call it ‘Buy, Move and Make’. So additional exposure to different functions like warehousing, production, inventory etc would be good but not critical!

You should also be a strong negotiator, someone commercial that enjoys looking at the big picture. You will get coached in these areas as well so will develop a lot of sought after skills in the market.

There is a team of 15 people so you would need to enjoy managing, coaching and developing – some of the team are quite junior. The function is in a good place due to the hard work of your predecessor and the main goal is to continue the development of the capabilities of the procurement function and ultimately support the operations.

  • This position is ONLY open to local Filipino nationals only.
  • It’s a global business and will look great on your CV
  • It’s based in Davao area and of course you need to be happy working there full time
  • The package and benefits are flexible – lets discuss
