Procurement Officer

We’re looking for a customer-focused individual with energy, experience and a strong sense of purpose to join us as a Procurement Officer.

The UK has a housing problem. This affects every one of us, because housing is the foundation of the society we live in. Catalyst is part of the solution. You could be too.

One of the UK’s leading housing associations, Catalyst is here to make a purposeful difference by providing housing solutions for those who can’t afford a home without our help. We offer a wide range of homes, for rent, part ownership or purchase. By doing so, we build more than homes – we build communities. Put simply, we’re committed to our social purpose - in every part of our organisation. And, we always seek to do better. If you do too, read on.

We’re totally committed to delivering excellent customer experience – being easy, reliable and empathetic in the way we deal with customers, and each other.

We have embarked on our journey and we are looking for support to help bring it to fruition. You will take responsibility for progressive and high quality administrative support to the Procurement Team and the management of key procurement related processes and documentation.

You will manage the ‘contracts management database’ ensuring a dynamic and accurate contract register is maintained for the entire business. You will develop and manage analytical data and records to ensure compliance and reporting is provided consistently and accurately to the procurement team and senior management.

You will ensure accurate and timely availability of compliance and management reporting identifying areas for improvement and opportunity. You will maintain the Procurement Dashboard to ensure the accurate reporting of procurement KPI’s and savings.

You will be a team player and resourceful provider of knowledge to colleagues and stakeholders. You will possess the character and resilience to work in a pressure environment and deliver against challenging targets. You will have a good track record of developing and implementing analytics and management information across a range of both direct and in-direct categories. You will have good working knowledge of Microsoft Excel, Word and Powerpoint and be a proficient administrator with a keen interest in developing a career in Procurement. Excellent communication skills – both written and verbal.

We’re a Sunday Times top 100 Best Company to Work for. We invest a lot of time and resources in our people because we know it’s our people who will drive our success. If you’d like to join us, and help make a real difference, please get in touch.
