  • Overview

    We are the automotive finance captive organisation of Opel and Vauxhall, supported by Groupe PSA and BNP Paribas as our strong partners and shareholders. Our team of around 1,200 employees across Europe are committed to meet the mobility needs of our customers, while sustaining and developing the Opel and Vauxhall brands through competitive and attractive automotive finance solutions.

    We are proud to work in an environment that fosters and promotes our values in a way that is led by our employees. We promote a collaborative culture of people who actively contribute with integrity. We are agile, open minded and adaptive to deliver at pace, with customers at the heart of all we do. Our recent awards demonstrate the commitment of our employees. These include the Best Company to Work for in Car Finance and the Best Company to work for in Financial Services awards as well as the Investors in People | Gold Accreditation in the UK.

    We are small enough for an individual to make a mark; large enough to develop a challenging and rewarding career.


    As our Procurement Specialist, you will report into the Chief Procurement Officer to support the European business owners to meet their operational objectives by:

    • Managing and overseeing the procure to pay process within SAP for central IT and local sourcing requirements
    • Negotiation of tier 2 supplier agreements
    • Central support of the procurement team and business users
    • Dedicated support to the UK Procurement Manager in relation to the coordination of requests for quotation, supplier selection processes and documentation necessary to adhere to group procurement policies and procedures. 

    Ad hoc travel to our High Wycombe office and to local suppliers will be required.


    As a purchasing/procurement generalist, you will be able to demonstrate a good knowledge of processes and methodologies to source products & services. The ability to effectively manage supplier and stakeholder relationships for the European business is highly important for this role.


    You will be either fully CIPS qualified, or working towards the qualification with experience of using sourcing and contracting systems such as SAP. In addition, you’ll be able to demonstrate a natural flair for data analysis with a flexible and collaborative approach to the changing needs of the business.


    As we are a multi-country operation, fluency in a European language would be highly beneficial.
