You will have a unique opportunity to create and influence change in order to deliver a professional, compliant, customer focused procurement service, ensuring an effective structure is in place and opportunities are available for personal development and succession planning.
You will lead on the development and implementation of a procurement framework/strategy which delivers value for money and excellent customer service, promoting procurement best practice throughout the organisation, so the ability to work with and influence key internal stakeholders is paramount.
We are looking for a self-motivated individual who tackles challenges with a pragmatic and enthusiastic approach, with a strong background in strategic and operational procurement including public contracts regulations procurement (i.e. OJEU).
