Position: Senior Procurement Manager for Indirect Procurement - Struer

Do you have the category management toolbox and commercial savviness to drive an indirect procurement category? And are you looking for an opportunity to:

  • Build yourself an international career as you work with Danish and global stakeholders?
  • Co-captain the deployment of our new Procurement Business Partnering programme?
  • Join one of the best-known luxury brands in the world – and a company where your ideas are encouraged and brought to life? 
  • Join Bang & Olufsen at the heart of procurement 

    You will become a part of Procurement EU, which is responsible for indirect procurement on a global level. Here, you will join four senior procurement managers, each dedicated to a specific category, and six ambitious experts, each working to secure the right goods and services for the company, allowing us to grow and meet our overall ambitions. 


    Together, we build and manage relations with industry-leading partners and suppliers to add value to our overall business agenda, and at the heart of our success lies cross-functional collaboration and an open-minded and flexible working environment. Joining Procurement EU, you will be based in Lyngby with the opportunity to work out of our brand new Innovation Lab in Struer as well. 


    Build and manage a sophisticated, global supplier network 

    You will dedicate yourself to the non-product-related (NPR) area of procurement where marketing and transportation are among our biggest categories. With the responsibility of securing strong professional relations and collaborations, you will: 

  • Work as a business partner for your stakeholders to understand their budgets and strategies and develop and execute the commercial strategy for the procurement category
  • Function as our account manager for suppliers and partners and facilitate quarterly business review meetings to secure optimal engagement
  • Lead our tender processes and negotiate procurement contracts
  • Drive continuous improvement initiatives to optimise customer experiences, productivity and total cost of ownership
  • Collaborate with other procurement managers responsible for indirect procurement categories to ensure alignment and maximum value creation across categories 
  • “With our new business partnering programme, allowing even more value creation through innovation and people engagement, you will spearhead this new journey with us. With time, you will also have the opportunity to grow into a specialised role within procurement in different categories. The choice is yours,” says Henrik Jensby, Director and Head of Procurement, Europe. 


    Talented networker and true “teamworker” with great stakeholder management skills 

  • You have a proven track record within category management and strong business acumen gained through at least 5 years of experience within procurement, purchasing, account management, business relations management, category management or the like
  • If you have experience managing or working with the marketing category, it is an advantage
  • You have excellent IT skills and solid experience with commercial contracts
  • You speak and write English fluently
  • With your innate communication and presentation skills, you are able to develop strong professional relationships with large international partners. Furthermore, you are a proven self-starter, which enables you to drive processes and negotiations with tenacity in a fast-paced environment.
