Senior Procurement Specialist, OPX Partners


OPX Partners is a Nordic management consultancy supporting performance improvements. We support companies in making and implementing decisions on strategic transformation and operational improvement. Our engagement model is based on close client collaboration that secures client ownership of implemented solutions – we deliver effects not recommendations. Our consultants have both top tier consulting and line management experience giving our teams unique capabilities in mobilizing an organization and ultimately achieving results. 90% of our business is recurring or based on client referrals as a result of our commitment to build trust-based client

  • In addition to this you have a 2-4 years relevant project management experience (can overlap with above) that shows that you can work in a project-based setting, either independently or managing a project team

  • Foremost, we are looking for someone who has ‘lived the problems’ that our clients typically face and who is unafraid to ‘roll up the sleeves’ to find a solution
