In July 2014, Proco Global was engaged by a leading global styrenics and chemicals company to fill the newly created role of Global Category Buyer Direct Spend to be based in Germany.

Due to a business restructure within the company, the client approached Proco Global to aid in the search for a Global Category Buyer, Direct Spend to be based in Germany.

For this role, they needed candidates to be absolute experts in their field, hold a specialised knowledge of petrochemicals and business cross functionality experience. As the role was a new role creation they also needed the successful professional to have the experience and confidence to develop and drive the Global Procurement Strategy for the Direct Spend category globally.
We drew on our competent knowledge of the German market, coupled with our specialised expertise and understanding of the global petrochemicals industry to identify a long list of 39 potential candidates.  After initial competency and technical screening a shortlist of five professionals were presented to the client.  All shortlisted candidates proceeded to physical interview stage.

The successful candidate was offered the role and accepted, completing the assignment only eight weeks after the initial brief.  On completion of this hire, the client was extremely impressed with Proco Global and retained us in the search of a further hire within the same team.
