Career path

We then have to set quality standards, build winning relationships with suppliers so they keep us up to date with innovations in their area, receive goods and services, and approve payments.

Markets for the commodities we need – such as cocoa, coffee and sugar – are volatile, so we have to manage risks and control the impact of fluctuating prices.

Procurement is an integral part of our business strategy. So we’re committed to attracting and growing fearless business leaders and trusted supplier partners. Those who can grow margins, manage spend effectively, drive innovation, improve quality, assure our suppliers can meet consumers’ needs – and ensure we’re first to market with new products.

“Procurement gives you a window to the external world and the opportunity to challenge the status quo.”

Where you could fit in

Where you could fit in

Procurement sources all goods and services worldwide to produce and deliver our delicious products to customers and consumers. Five teams work together to give us competitive advantage in the global business environment.

Category acts as a dedicated partner to each of our Categories, working with their teams on strategy and innovation. This is a part of Procurement where face-to-face interaction is vital and we meet with Local Procurement Representatives on a daily basis.

Commodity Price Risk Management (CPRM) is a global team that focuses on seven key commodities: energy, cocoa, dairy, sugar, grains, edible oils and nuts. All these commodities are traded on global markets and prices can change quickly. The team uses the Pricing Net of Commodities to track prices and control the risks to our business.

Global Strategy & Capability supports all groups within Procurement by sharing its expertise in best-in-class processes, policies and capability development. We need a master plan to achieve our long-term goals. This team looks at the overall ability of our people, processes and technology, and ways we can improve efficiency and effectiveness across Procurement.

Spend Areas are five global teams (Raw Materials, Packaging, Logistics & Manufacturing, Marketing & Sales and Business Services & Information Systems) responsible for 100% of purchases in their area. They work with suppliers and leverage our scale to get the best value for money. Through the Collaborating & Rationalizing for Enterprise Wins (CREW) initiative, they keep things simple and our suppliers to a minimum.

Operations comprises Local Procurement Representatives, who deal directly with stakeholders and suppliers in their regions and areas. It also includes Procurement Operations Centers, which are responsible for indirect spend transactions, procurement efficiency and ‘spot buys’ – which can be one-off purchases or just a great local deal.

Entry roles include Local Procurement Representative, Sourcing Specialist and Commodity Procurement Risk Management (CPRM) Specialist, with a path to roles such as Spend Area Lead, Global Strategy & Capability Lead, Sourcing Director or CPRM Director.

Your learning experience

In Procurement, you decide how you want your career to progress. Our learning and development opportunities will help you to get to where you want to be.

Most of your learning will be on the job. This will mean taking on ever-more complex and challenging projects. But development will also come from moving beyond your job description – perhaps by sharing your knowledge in a class, leading a task force or volunteering your services for a good cause.

Learning will also come from daily interactions with some great colleagues, perhaps in the form of work shadowing, networking, coaching or mentoring. For more formal learning, you will have access to a dedicated Resources room, which offers a host of online tools, other initiatives such as face-to-face workshops and webinars, and events like our Growing Here Weeks.
