The GNFR (Goods Not for Resale) Procurement Team is a fast paced and rewarding environment where no two days are the same. The team works across the business sourcing goods and services across £260 million of spend in the areas of Supply Chain, Marketing, Supplies, Technology, HR, Travel, Packaging, Fixtures, Equipment and Utilities.
Supporting the Category Manager Supply Chain Procurement, you’ll play a key role in the delivery of the Supply Chain Category Strategy through managing key tenders, contracts and supplier relationships.
You’ll have procurement or commercial experience, ideally within supply chain or packaging, managing spend in excess of £2 million. You understand the lifecycle of global tenders, legal processes and commercial best practice with third party relationships. You’ll be driving projects from beginning to end, delivering savings and managing risk. For that, you need to bring tenacity, teamwork and razor-sharp commercial acumen. You’ve got to be confident, articulate and ready to work closely with suppliers. A Retail or Commercial background would be helpful, as would a CIPS qualification. If you don’t have one yet, we may be able to support you with your studies.
Life with us
Every 60 seconds, 105 pairs of Clarks shoes are sold globally. That makes us a £1.6 billion business and a truly worldwide brand. We now have some 15,000 employees across 75 different countries – everywhere from Europe to the Americas. Despite being the world’s biggest everyday footwear brand (by sale volume), we’re still owned by the Clarks family and based in Street, Somerset – where the Clarks business began. Street is the nerve centre of our business, driving growth and the whole Clarks success story.
As well as development opportunities, pension and a competitive salary, you’ll also enjoy a variety of benefits. These range from 25 days’ holiday (plus bank holidays) to discounted healthcare. And, as everyone loves new shoes, you’ll also get a very healthy discount on our products.
We love hearing from great people
