We are a multinational professional service company working for clients all around the globe. Our German office is looking for support on a current project that is being executed for one of our clients.

The project focuses on procurement of consulting services and external contractors. The cost oriented senior freelance consultant should have a strong expertise in personnel day rates, i.e. a proven track record in and affinity towards the procurement external staff and thus be able to define day rates and costs.

Successful candidates will demonstrate a deep understanding of areas such as collective agreements, social security costs and overheads for companies.

This client-focused role will provide a development plan based on your thorough analysis of the existing procurement processes and suppliers. Highly relevant proposals of freelance consultants need to demonstrate legal and procurement expertise as well as commercial focus.
