Do you want to help in shaping a fossil free future within a generation? For our Staff Function Procurement we are now looking for a

The PPM will develop methods and support procurement in how to best operationalize buying channels for end users and will also have to work with Accounts payable and suppliers on resolving issues with electronic invoicing.
The PPM liaise with and manage third party providers of Vattenfall content related systems and applications. Such as Vattenfall’s chosen supplier bank, supplier screening, QlikView reporting, ITC and Ariba/SAP to support them with integrating with the suppliers ERP system, loading and testing of punch-out catalogues, escalation of non-compliant suppliers.
