The ideal solution
An Interim Procurement Director is the ideal solution for an organisation with a absence in the role. Being responsible for the management of purchasing all necessary materials, equipment and services used by an organisation requires a wealth of experience and knowhow. To cover the absence temporarily, an Interim Procurement Director must have the expertise required to step into the role with minimum onboarding.
They will need excellent communication skills to work closely with other department heads to ensure all materials and equipment needed to run the business are purchased and received on time. They will also need good negotiation skills to get the best prices from vendors, and ensure all purchased goods are of sufficient quality.
The right Interim Procurement Director can even develop a long-term purchasing strategy for the organisation
This could include sourcing new vendors and improving relationships with existing suppliers. They can also create and cultivate partnerships with suppliers who may be able to offer additional value to the organisation beyond their usual product.
As well as these general duties, a Procurement Director may have a number of other responsibilities, including:
- Budget preparation
- Supplier reviews and bid assessments
- Compliance with regulations
- Implementing an inventory management system
- Reviewing and auditing supplier invoices
