Young, active and constantly chnaging
Procurement Manager (Current Employee) – Sydney – 23 May 2015
I love the variety that comes with my role. Every day is a new challenge and I love being able to help the clubs to operate more smoothly. It is a very fast pace and demanding environment. I receive more than 150 emails every day from internal stakeholders to external providers, attend several meetings, negotiate various contracts, implement processes and efficiencies, create policies and audit compliance, manage transitions, control stock, supervise the warehouse, provide solutions, educate, mentor and support Club Managers and my team. I wear many hats every day and I love that. I mostly enjoy the beautiful and rewarding feedback I receive internally and externally; for example Club Managers saying "I am the messiah for Fitness First", " we now have more transparency and control over suppliers", or the feedback from suppliers; "you are one of the best Procurement Managers we have met", "you are very passionate and engaging, you care a lot about your employer, you work with your heart" etc...
The demographics of each Fitness First club are all very different so customizing the offering to each and every club whilst maintaining a national standard approach is quite challenging, however I have leant the art of making this possible.
My colleagues are quire young, fit and fun. This keeps feeling very young too:).
Complimentary gym membership, flexible working hours
Liasing with other Fitness First offices in other countries, can be sometimes challenging due to time differences
