Procurement Apprentice

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.

Who are our Procurement Specialists?
They’re the people who look after the buying of goods and services which enable us to offer our customers the services they love. Part of our wider Finance division, they are experts at selecting (and managing) suppliers, negotiating pricing and assessing risk.

Build your expertise
Working alongside experienced team members, you’ll get stuck into all aspects of our procurement work, from researching what products and services are available in the market to managing our existing partners and suppliers. You’ll also get to build valuable connections with procurement colleagues all over Europe, as well as stakeholders in teams such as Commercial Finance, Tax, Legal, Technology and HR.

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.
