UK & Ireland Marketing & Business Services Procurement Cluster lead
September 2014 — Present
Managing a team across the UK to optimise the value Procurement can deliver within Marketing & Business Services spend across the UK & Ireland geography.
The UK & Ireland is No.1 of the top 20 global Procurement clusters within Unilever. Not only is UKI the largest in terms of spend but we also have a complex mix of sites and stakeholders within our remit including Manufacturing sites, R&D centres and one of our two Corporate Centres in London. Marketing accounts for a significant proportion of the spend but all spend portfolio's are well covered.
This role whilst UKI focused also feeds into a wider EU & Global cluster organisation ensuring that opportunities are identified and managed at differing levels in addition to ensuring the UKI is connected to other geographies and vice versa.
