The Estee Lauder Companies Indirect Procurement Buyer in London, United Kingdom

Indirect Procurement Buyer

Brand: Estée Lauder Companies Corporate Departments


The Regional Procurement Function has created an opportunity for a two full time, London based, permanent Indirect Procurement Buyers reporting to the UK and Ireland Director of Procurement.

The roles will have different spend area responsibilities, although from time to time both roles may be required to support other projects outside of this scope, in line with the business requirements:

  1. Corporate Services, Travel and Events

  2. Supply Chain Operations and IT procurement

In these roles, you will take responsibility for leading complex and time precious Procurement projects in a fast paced, agile environment. Being a natural curiosity driven problem solver, you have the ability to quickly understand, and deliver the actions and priorities to secure BAU activities, whilst also identifying and exploring opportunities for long term strategy and innovation within your spend areas of responsibility, together with our global Category teams.


You will thrive in forming strong relationships with stakeholders in a complex multi-brand environment; as you will be exposed to various levels of seniority within the organisation, excellent communication skills are essential. You will be confident working with contracts and can manage working under tight deadlines in a high touch environment.

You will be confident working with Excel and analysing market/supplier data, negotiating robust supplier solutions at the right market price and identifying continuous savings opportunities available to the business, are key activities associated with this role.

You will ideally have a background, experience and a deep interest in advancing your career within Indirect Procurement; you are likely to be a graduate, with experience in a professional Procurement department, or have significant exposure to contract or operational management in the spend areas relevant to each of the roles.

Either way you are confident, energetic, self-driven and thrive from achieving personal and professional goals.
