Are you intrigued by the idea to develop and negotiate great sourcing deals to create extraordinary deals for our suppliers and our Company?
Procter & Gamble spends more than $40 billion/year in goods and services to produce some of the best consumer products in the world.
As a manager in Purchasing you will belong to a critical discipline within the Product Supply organization, controlling the Company's spend on items ranging from raw & packaging materials, from equipment to marketing services, to software and outsourced manufacturing services, while guaranteeing a meaningful learning environment across industries and sectors.
P&G’s Strategic Sourcing leaders are commercial leaders found at the forefront of supply-chain activities, managing P&G’s expenditure and bringing the outside in. Whether for knowledge, innovation or methodologies, Purchases people are the eyes and ears of the company, connecting with a variety of industries.
