You will work within a collaborative business partner model providing guidance, support and procurement project management across a variety of categories and contract types.

You’ll have a range of category experience focusing on indirect services; experience of goods and works is desirable.
You’ll have not-for-profit/charity, public sector or private sector procurement experience as well as an appetite for learning about new categories of spend and non-procurement related contracting activity. (PDSA doesn’t fall within scope of OJEU but we are open to people with this experience)
Full MCIPS membership is desirable, although consideration will be given to those who are currently studying towards achieving this or have equivalent experience.
