The Museum's executive leadership and the board of trustees recently agreed that a concerted effort to professionalize procurement, and create a strategic category management function from the basis of what has historically been very administrative, was needed.

The successful candidate must have 10+ years of strategic procurement experience, with specific marketing & print related category knowledge. A Degree is ideal but not required. In addition, you will need the confidence required to speak well to the general procurement vision; i.e. the ability to influence, educate and effect meaningful change to the way procurement is regarded at the departmental level, as well as the patience required to see that change through. Lastly, someone who has a history of results and accountability.
