Job offer #1,468,516,375 in Brentford (INVALID), United Kingdom

Project Manager

Our client, a global leading Pharmaceutical firm, are seeking a Project Manager on an initial 9 Month contract to start ASAP. This role will be based in Stockley Park, Uxbridge.

Job Purpose

* Be accountable for all procurement activities from pre-deal to deal completion (inclusive of Integration/Separation activities) to ensure all deals are completed safely, on time and with minimal commercial impact to the company.
* Work closely with the Corporate Development team on multiple deals in parallel, ensuring that all procurement milestones are clearly identified and executed. The ability to work across boundaries is also necessary as a large part of the role is identifying and managing dependencies with other workstreams. The ability to influence without authority and work with very senior stakeholders at CET-1 level is required.
* Budget planning is undertaken on a deal by deal basis, often working closely with the global CPO, office of the CFO and CFO - 1 to obtain necessary approvals. The candidate must be able to constructively challenge stakeholders at this level and defend the requested budget to be able to have sufficient funds for the appropriate level of resource to deliver the deal safely.
* Risk assessment and a strategic mindset is needed to look across the deal (both pre-deal and post-signing) to identify and mitigate any risks to global procurement at the company. Where appropriate, category managers must be involved, and existing supplier relationships leveraged, to address such risks.
* Partnering with stakeholders often occurs to identify opportunities for value creation through identifying the right mix of external support e.g. Tier 1 vs Tier 2 consultancies, CW’s vs external resource, etc.
* Leading negotiations with consultancy partners (BCG, McKinsey, Big 4) is a large part of the role as most deals require external support. Working together with CET-1 to lead RFP’s and ensure that the right suppliers are selected at the right price in extremely tight timelines is required.
* The candidate must work extremely closely with the Procurement Strategic Consulting team to ensure that there is alignment regarding rate card and contract negotiations and leveraging the company’s global volume as opposed to operating in silos.
* Supplier relationship management and being the “middle-man” between the deal team and suppliers is needed to ensure KPI’s are delivered and that we are getting the best out of our suppliers.
* Bringing in the external view to stakeholders through external benchmarks, best practice and industry standards is needed to constantly improve the ways of working. This includes challenging the existing supplier base, procurements role and scope as well as the RFP/ CAF process.

Basic Qualifications

* Qualified to Degree level
* Procurement expertise coupled with MA&D experience (or Integration/Separation experience) is a must
* Strong track record of senior stakeholder management and influencing; ability to influence without express authority; ability to build strong relationships.
* Experience managing suppliers (including performance management), developing new potential suppliers and partnering with supply base for mutual benefit
* Very strong communication and presentation skills; ability to appropriately represent the company externally.
* Demonstrated skills in project management and budget management
* Financial acumen and demonstrated analytical skills
