Procurement Manager

Who are we?

Beacon is a Procurement Services Provider and part of the BWH Hotel Group GB. We have customers of all sizes, from family-owned guest houses to multi-site care homes and have a comprehensive portfolio of carefully vetted suppliers that are leaders in their sectors.

We pride ourselves on being seen as a trusted partner, supporting customers to meet their strategic and financial objectives. And we do this by delivering personalised solutions, tailoring our services for each business’s needs to boost their efficiency and profits.

We’re a friendly bunch – far more human than corporate – and we’re always happy to answer any questions or provide ad-hoc advice to resolve our customers’ pressing issues of the day. That’s why you’ll need to be a real people person. Someone who can develop strong working relationships quickly and do it with warmth and diplomacy, even when handling a tricky conversation.

The role

Providing personalised procurement solutions is what we do best. And, as Procurement Manager, you’ll play a pivotal role in ensuring we continue to excel at unlocking bespoke savings for our customers.

Your primary responsibility will be to use your first-rate negotiation and influencing skills to achieve ‘best in market’ commercial deals with your supplier portfolio. You’ll also need to create customer-focused action plans for your categories, analysing market dynamics and the competition to develop ‘go to market’ tender strategies. In addition, you’ll source, develop, and promote supply solutions to increase our share of the category mix, ensuring our field and inbound sales teams are aware of the customer benefits that your newly onboarded suppliers can provide.

You’ll need a sound working knowledge of using historical and forecasted data to identify where you can achieve efficiencies and have the market knowledge to recognise a great deal when you see one. Confident in negotiating, checking and approving new contracts, you’ll also possess the ability to manage the entire life cycle of a competitive tender process.

What we offer in return

Along with a competitive salary, we provide:

·a generous holiday allowance

·pension

·opportunity for hybrid working

·discounted hotel stays

·Health and dental plan

After all, we know that to be a great place to work, we need great people to work with us, which is why we’re always open to hearing from talented, motivated, self-starters that know how to put customers at the heart of everything they do. So, if this sounds like you, please send your C.V. to recruitment@bwhhotelgroup.co.uk and a summary of what you can bring to the business, along with your current salary and salary expectation and we’ll be back in touch soon.
