They provide innovative health solutions across vaccines, cardiovascular disease, oncology and diabetes care. Their Leinster operations are undergoing a huge expansion, with expected growth of 300% in 2017 due to the commercialisation of new products.

  • Acting as a key point of contact for specific supplier relations and supporting other Irish sites to ensure delivery is at an optimum level
  • Monitoring and tracking supplier performance against service level agreements and keeping Category Managers updated about any issues or concerns from site level

My client is looking for an experienced Procurement professional with strong stakeholder management experience. The chosen candidate will be an organised and process driven individual, with proven experience in implementing change controls and experience in a GMP environment. A Lean Six Sigma qualification would be beneficial.
