BCG spends $ on goods and services across the firm globally. At its core, Procurement is accountable for ensuring that BCG is supplied with goods and services that meet business requirements, drive value and at best whole life cost to BCG.
The functional procurement team at BCG is a healthy, yet nascent operating function that has generated material savings to BCG over the past 5 years. Over the past 18 months, we’ve embarked upon a procurement transformation to define and implement strategies, organization, systems and policies to create a sustainable operating model. This model should maximize value from our suppliers, mitigate risk and meet savings targets. BCG is a highly matrixed firm where purchasing decisions are often taken at the local level, therefore this transformation will need to be carried out with high levels of stakeholder engagement, alignment and collaboration.
The BCG Global Procurement function is currently made up of more than 45 procurement professionals located in London, Stockholm, New Delhi, Boston and Munich. This Sourcing Manager position will be supporting our team with sourcing projects on a strategic and operational level.
As part of BCG’s Global Procurement transformation, we have created the following new strategic category planning gpositions in Real Estate, Professional Services, and Human Resources. These Sourcing Category Leaders will collaborate closely with senior business partners, executive leadership, and functional owners across the company to understand their business priorities and establish category strategies that will enable their success. The Category Leaders will get a broad understanding of BCG’s overall business, gain great visibility and understanding across the organization, and be responsible for leading the Category Planning and Sourcing efforts for all in scope categories globally.
Scope of work will be global, regional as well as local sourcing. Extensive global category experience, relationship building, sell-in capabilities and sensitivity to local requirements are key qualifications and attributes for success. The individual taking on this challenge must possess a very high level of self-motivation/drive, persistency, resourcefulness and a willingness to facilitate change.
