Turnover is close to €300 mi. and gross profit is about 10% of sales ! The company is proud to be named “best employer” in the construction and infra sector in the Netherlands, in the years 2021 to 2023 (by Effectory) and also as the best performing construction company in the Netherlands in 2023 (by Cobouw).

The company is characterized by a strong vision. This is focused on integral sustainable and socially responsible working, employee development and satisfaction, innovation, partnering and awarding in cooperation with suppliers and subcontractors, planned work and super-satisfied customers. This involves setting clear goals for all these aspects, measuring progress and adjusting the business plan based on the results.


You will report to the Director of Business Spaces who is also a member of the Executive Board and are the only buyer in the organization and they want to keep it that way. In fact, procurement is done by the BUs themselves. In your role, you will focus on supporting-and giving direction to-the procurement function. Consider:

  • Collaborate with management on strategy and planning
  • Train colleagues on how to work with suppliers and subcontractors and on theoretical purchasing knowledge
  • Design of standard procurement processes i.c.w. the BUs, aimed among other things at simplifying collaboration with suppliers and subcontractors
  • Preparation of templates for RFQs and contracts, including for collaboration with strategic partners
  • Mapping the supply market for materials and of subcontractors (advising towards the BUs), knowing the “cost drivers” in the “supply chains
  • Lean working, innovation, continuous improvement
  • Parametric design (this goes beyond BIM), partners must be able to participate in this
  • Bringing sustainability throughout the “supply chain.

Examples of the activities you pick up concretely include creating a dashboard for project evaluations and then especially focusing on partners and on quality and holding colleagues accountable internally for the quality delivered by partners. And preparing an action-oriented procurement annual plan, based on the strategic business plan, in close cooperation with internal stakeholders.
