MASTER THE ART OF BUYING

Do you want to gain experience with a successful procurement team? Would you like to study, learn and work towards a professional qualification? Join us on our Procurement Apprentice Scheme and you can do both.

Kickstart your procurement career

Our Procurement team play a crucial role in our Finance division, looking after the buying of goods and services which enable us to offer our customers the services they love. Join us here, as a Procurement Apprentice, and you’ll get to work alongside professional team members, seeing first-hand how we select suppliers, negotiate pricing and manage risk.  

Build skills for the future
By the end of the scheme, you’ll have built valuable connections with procurement colleagues all over Europe, as well as stakeholders in teams such as Commercial Finance, Tax, Legal, Technology and HR. You will also have developed skills in many different areas including:

  • Researching what products and services are available in the market
  • Selecting new partners and suppliers – and managing existing ones
  • Negotiating pricing and terms and conditions
  • Assessing operational and financial risk

What we look for
People who have lots of initiative, an inquisitive nature and an interest in doing research. You’ll be working on costing and pricing on a daily basis, so it helps if you’re a big fan of numbers. You also need to be well-organised with the ability to handle lots of different tasks at once. Excel and PowerPoint skills are a must.

A great salary and some amazing benefits. Plus the opportunity to add lots more skills to your locker and complete your Commercial Procurement & Supply Level 4 Apprenticeship.
