I initially joined Dynniq as a buyer in the Procurement Operations team in 2013. By the following year I had progressed to a Senior Buyer role, leading the Procurement Operations team, and as of January 2016 I have taken on the acting role of Category Manager for the urban environment.
Describe a typical day in your current role?
As Category Manager, my role is to effectively manage a supplier base, fit for the urban infrastructure environment; a role that is so diverse that two days are rarely the same! I can be doing any number of things from sourcing and selecting potential suppliers, through to negotiating supplier contracts; or identifying new products, services and revenue streams that can be incorporated into client contracts.
How do you make a difference to our clients?
The work that I do means that we employ the best suppliers and contractors in the industry and often surpass client expectation by supplying products and services from the right source at the right times, delivered in the right quantities at the right quality and achieving the right price!
What is the most fulfilling aspect of your role?
I’m a problem solver and so give me a challenge and I’ll fix it. Add to that the challenge of saving money for both ourselves and our clients, without compromising on quality or delivery and I’m happy.
How have you developed professionally whilst working at Dynniq?
Dynniq has supported me both financially and academically in my quest to achieve a professional diploma in MCIPS (Member of the Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply.) I am further supported towards my CPD in that I am given the time, and am funded to attend role-specific training events.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
Spare time for me involves spending valuable time with my family and carrying out never ending home improvements! I am a big sports fan too and try to fit as much golf and skiing in as possible.
