As a business, we don’t just sell products and services. We consume a lot too. From paper and paperclips, to legal services and from travel expenses to some of our Partner training, we constantly use products and services to help us work better and more efficiently. Naturally, the cost of all these add up. This is where our Goods Not for Resale (GNFR) Procurement team steps in.
Our GNFR Procurement team provides strategic support in sourcing and negotiating the most appropriate goods and services, at the best value for money, for our needs. They exemplify best-practice, drive commercial value and create consistency of approach across the Partnership. They also collaborate with divisions to ensure our procurement approach is totally joined up.
There are five core teams, but they’re driven by a common goal to provide quality goods and services at the best price. Marketing and Print procurement, the Procurement Planning and Support team, Professional Services procurement, Retail and Distribution procurement and the Property Procurement team all of whom work to the highest standards.
Our teams consist of Procurement Co-ordinators, Assistant Category Managers, Category Managers and Senior Category Managers and the Procurement Director. Wherever you join, you’ll make a tangible difference to our bottom line.
