    Here at Molson Coors, we are looking for a Senior Category Manager to join our world class Procurement team based in Burton Upon Trent. 


    Who you'll be working with


    Our team are not just high performing, cost saving Procurement leaders, they have genuine passion for our industry and the charisma to get everyone on board with their ideas.


    Strong communication skills are a must, as even though we’re one of the world’s biggest brewers, we’re still decidedly down-to-earth. You'll be confident enough to capture the attention of the room and be knowledgable enough to keep it.


    Here at Molson Coors, we don't just hire great people from the outside, we brew talent internally by helping you develop and reach your potential. We're looking for a genuine "people person" with natural leadership qualities and the ability to inspire others.


    What will I be doing?


    The role itself is centered around one of our most exciting categories partnering with Supply Chain and managing direct categories including cans, shrink, hi—cone and pallets within the World’s Family Brewer. As a company that makes beer - this is the category that really gets the juices flowing.


    With exciting projects on the horizon, we’re looking for you to join us on our journey of defining our Procurement strategy and extracting value from our partnerships. You’ll be focusing on UK&I but working closely with the global team, exploring how we can leverage our position to attain global agreements.


    If you’re looking for a role with fantastic exposure, autonomy and the chance to really progress within the business then look no further.


    Here’s a list of the key responsibilities in the role:

    • Managing 3-7 local/regional categories of intermediate to high complexity using strategic sourcing principles. Must understand country/region business priorities and needs. Owns contract compliance once agreement is signed.
    • Managing local/regional suppliers, including score-carding and actively monitoring KPI's. Responsible for creating and delivering category RO's on the national level.
    • Maintaining cost savings target of $1M-$2M per year. Responsible for assessing and managing category risks and opportunities on a country/cluster level.  
    • Managing stakeholders within their country/cluster. Must be able to business partner with senior level internal stakeholders aligning on company priorities and needs. Must also build relationships at lower levels of the organization.
    • Responsible for managing category AOP cycle including supporting countries/clusters with their local budgets.


    Who we're looking for


    In order to be considered for this opportunity you will need to demonstrate excellent strategic sourcing, supplier management and spend analysis. We also want to hear about all of your impressive contract negotiations that you've handled in the past.


    We use SAP so if you have experience of using it too, great. If not, don't let this put you off applying - tell us what other experience you have.


    You'll have experience with contract management tools, spend analysis tools as well as broad based experience in multinational category management and international teams.


    Strong project management skills are a must as well as effective written and verbal communications skills.


    Although you won’t be directly managing people, you will be managing people in an indirect/project type manner so you'll need to be able to see the bigger picture and put peices in the right places.


    You will be managing senior stakeholders across the business so will need to have excellent interpersonal skills with the ability to communicate at all levels. 


    We like a good sense of humour  and positivity around the office so the ability to build relationships at the coffee machine is just as important to us as anything else.


    You’ll need to be confident, disciplined and organised to succeed within this role and in return, we will offer your excellent career prospects, wide exposure within Supply Chain and the autonomy to really shine.


    If this sounds like something of interest then get in touch today and let’s start the conversation.
