About the role

We have an exciting opportunity for a Senior Procurement and SRM Partner to join the Guinness Team. This is a permanent, full-time vacancy based in our Oldham, Bower House office. We are currently working to a hybrid working style, working 2 days per week in the office and 3 from home. As such, it is a requirement for candidates to be able to work 2 days per week from the office mentioned above.

The overall purpose of the role is to develop and deliver Procurement, Contract and Supplier Relationship strategies to support business and operational delivery and achieve value for money throughout Guinness.

Our Procurement and SRM team has recently undergone a large and exciting transformation, introducing contract and supplier management standards and support into the purpose of the team. This has included 'Partner' roles where individuals have their own portfolios of work to manage. With the upcoming implementation of the new Procurement Act 2023, Guinness are seeing this as further opportunity to continue the transformation of our Procurement and SRM function.

What we're looking for

We know that how we do things is just as important as what we do, so you'll not only be highly self-motivated with the rigour to pursue goals, but you'll also be a confident collaborator, networker and relationship builder with a willingness to go the extra mile to get the job done.

You'll be able to demonstrate:


  • Experience of delivering large scale cost effective and compliant procurement solutions across a range of functions that deliver VFM, enable operational efficiencies and appropriately manage risk.
  • Significant experience of generating additional value through contract and supplier relationship management strategies.
  • Experience of developing and implementing procurement, contract management and supplier relationship policies.
  • Experience of identifying contract management best practice and conducting contract assurance reviews.
  • Excellent stakeholder management and influencing skills.
  • Proven programme and PMO management experience, including oversight of multiple concurrent programmes, ideally in a commercial environment.
  • Knowledge and experience of working within the Public Contract Regulations.
  • Excellent financial and data analysis skills.
  • Excellent oral and written communications and presentation skills.
  • Demonstrates the Guinness Behaviours.
  • Demonstrates the Guinness Leadership and Management Standard.


  • Experience of working within a procurement function across a geographically dispersed environment.



  • Educated to degree level or equivalent.
  • MCIPS qualified and/or equivalent.
  • Project or programme management professional qualification and/or equivalent.


  • WCC (IAACM) qualified and/or equivalent.
