This role will require a demonstrated ability to manage internal and external relationships and will require experience of working cross-functionally in a matrix organisation, in order to influence a breadth of business decisions throughout the Life Cycle Management (LCM) framework.
What we need from you:
The successful applicant will lead the delivery of a procurement service to a key New Product Introduction (NPI) activity in the Electro-optic sector, one that is critical to the success of the wider business. This will involve ownership and implementation of the Procurement Plan for the programme to ensure effective establishment of the supply chain as the product progresses through the lifecycle, to ensure key internal and external deadlines are met.
Key to the role is the ability both to understand and influence internal and external stakeholders, as well as a sound understanding of the nature and challenges of the New Product Introduction phase of the lifecycle. Additionally, sound knowledge of lifecycle management and ability to apply this independently to ensure the success of the programme is key.
