Lena, Category Manager

Procurement in one sentence: We procure the right things, in sufficient quantity, in the best quality, at the best price, at the specified time, for the desired position.

Thinking outside the box

We design and manage all strategic and operational purchasing processes in order to provide all products and services that ProSiebenSat.1 Media SE and its subsidiaries require. We are mainly responsible to negotiate the best conditions and to ensure efficient and effective purchasing processes. Therefore, we are always on the lookout for interesting suppliers for the many different procurement projects that we manage as purchasers. We see ourselves as internal service providers – a task that is both a challenge and an enrichment for us. After all, what is better than saving the company a lot of money every year?

Your Profile

A good buyer needs just as much analytical, commercial and entrepreneurial understanding as positive negotiation skills, assertiveness and, most importantly, the ability to think outside the box. Our shopping list changes every day and therefore we often have to find good solutions quickly. The entire department reflects this dynamic: in a young or young at heart team, varied tasks and many interesting training courses and workshops.
