Procurement Manager

Bracknell with flexible homeworking


You have a wealth of commercial experience and deeply understand the value a well-run indirect procurement function brings to a business. All you need is an opportunity to put your leadership ideas into practice…


In this influential role, you’ll have the backing from senior decision-makers to revitalise a global procurement function and give it the platform it deserves. You’ll be doing it with a successful, respected organisation that’s renowned for making the world a safer place.


Where you fit in


You’ve proven your commercial and procurement skills across a number of indirect categories. Now, you’re ready to take on a leadership challenge: to shape a function and raise its profile across the business. If you’re looking for a job where you can set the pace, assert your authority and make a visible impression, this is an ideal move.


You’ll join Lloyds Register, an organisation with centuries of experience of helping the global maritime industry to embrace innovative design, construction and operating methods, helping to keep world trade moving safely, efficiently and sustainably.


You’ll lead a small team, equipping and encouraging them to build stronger partnerships across the business – to work more proactively with stakeholders, driving even better value. You’ll have the freedom to champion good procurement practices and vendor management disciplines, and to shape process improvements and sustainability across the entire supply chain.


Initially, your focus will be on sub-contract labour, employee-related spend, and professional services, but over time there’s scope to expand your brief to include IT, travel/mobility and property. 


What you can add


The men and women who join us come from a diverse range of backgrounds and sectors, so we’re open minded about where you’re working now. You’re probably a graduate (or have equivalent experience) and CIPS-qualified (or working towards it). Commercially astute, you almost certainly have experience of leading people in a senior role.


It’s your character that will make all the difference. Your colleagues know you as someone who’s results-focused and analytical with an enquiring, innovative approach. You have good foresight – a knack for heading off issues before they arise. You’ll also call on your confident communication and influencing skills to build fruitful relationships both with internal stakeholders and external vendors.


Why join Lloyd’s Register


Our people are passionate about what they do and love working for an independent organisation with a strong purpose – one that’s guided by principles, not just profit. They really value our inclusive culture, and a flexible modern approach that supports both office- and home-based work.


The business has proved very resilient during the pandemic thanks to our well-established single global procurement system, cloud-based systems and forward-thinking culture. Looking ahead, we have ambitious plans to grow – if you’re as positive as us about the value procurement can add,

it’s a great time to join us.
