Procurement Director

ID:  2940
Function:  Operations

Odense, DK

This recruitment process is handled by Hansen Toft. Please contact Senior Research Consultant Tina Mølgaard Larsen by phone +45 2912 9149.


Strategic procurement profile for tasks whose focus is the development and structuring of processes and agreements in a global growth company


Mobile Industrial Robots is one of Denmark’s fastest growing industrial companies and, with global representation and an aggressive growth strategy, needs to bolster its operations. 


Structure and dynamics in an agile day-to-day life
Throughout its life, the company has experienced exponential growth, which places great demands on flexibility and a sense-of-urgency. Growth rates have been in double-digits from quarter to quarter. To ensure that the supply chain can absorb market demand, it is necessary to focus on the procurement processes.
Under the supervision of the COO, you will take overall responsibility for the company’s global procurement strategies within the supply chain, with a special focus on sourcing. You will have commercial responsibility for all contracts, agreements, risk hedging, etc.


Other key tasks include:
•    Ensuring high quality and delivery performance from suppliers and making sure that there’s always a transparent and competitive KPI structure
•    Planning and implementation of supplier development in close collaboration with the rest of the organization
•    Ensuring efficient supplier selection and development, taking into account technology and future needs
•    Developing support systems through the digitalization of processes and business procedures


Alongside these, you need to motivate and develop your four employees, as well as support cross-organizational collaboration.


A spot in the eye of the storm
It sounds violent, but the right candidate gets a kick out of it. This is a hectic environment at MiR where expectations are high, but where staff share a common ambition to achieve their goals. You must contribute to this through your professional foundation and solid experience from a similar position in an international technical production company, where you as a manager or director successfully professionalised procurement and returned impressive results. 
You ideally have a commercial background supplemented with a proven knowledge of LEAN or similar, but you may have also acquired the necessary competencies through education in engineering – no matter what, you must be ready to work independently. You are fluent and able to negotiate in both Danish and English. Although German is an advantage, it’s not a requirement.


You will be offered a role that will facilitate your development and growth, as well as an opportunity to use your entire accumulated skillset and take part in an exciting journey towards growth. There are plenty of opportunities for professional and personal development, and the salary range is attractive.


If you have any questions about the position, you are welcome to contact Senior Research Consultant Tina Mølgaard Larsen by phone on +45 2912 9149. 


Please note that we only need your CV when you apply for the position. Your inquiry will be treated confidentially and will not be passed on without
