Your Challenge

Therewith you ensure that OCI Nitrogen acquires the right supply of IT, Facilities & Services, in line with the requirements of our company and within our budget: you have a big say in how our organization performs, financially as well as on service level.

You make sure you understand what your internal customers need, why they need it and challenge it to get a grip on the real demand. Therefore, you have close contact with our IT and HR department.

Subsequently, you align your specific demands with preferred suppliers and negotiate on terms to arrive at a deal with one or more suppliers that fits our demands in an optimal way.

As our Category Manager, you manage relationships with suppliers: on-board them, track and evaluate their performance and if desired work closely together to improve supplier performance to further reduce Total Cost of Ownership.
