Category Manager Jobs

In recent years, Procurement has become more of a strategic function than a transactional discipline.

Many organisations have become acutely aware of the importance of identifying sustainable, long-term cost saving areas, and there has been significant growth in the demand for Category Managers.

Category Managers continually review their specialist area of spend to get a complete understanding of the suppliers and movements within their categories. Typically within indirect Procurement spends, Category Management focus on all spend areas within a business to not only add value through cost savings but also increase business optimisation.

As well as specific knowledge of their spend categories, Category Managers typically require effective stakeholder engagement skills from both an internal and external perspective.
