Contract (Full time)
Norwich is a thriving city with an ambitious Council and a very busy procurement team. We buy all the goods and services for the Council and manage suppliers, tenders and contracts with an annual spend of £80M.
We are seeking additional help from an enthusiastic and experienced procurement professional to manage a large and varied procurement caseload, which will be predominantly building related. You will be a key member of our team and enjoy working with a broad range of stakeholders, suppliers, managers and colleagues. You should be methodical and happy working to public procurement regulations and the Council’s contract procedures and familiar with competitive tenders.
We would love to hear from you if you already have procurement experience or a level 3 CIPS qualification in procurement and supply (or equivalent). However, you should also get in touch if you have worked in finance or projects and have strong procurement expertise.
As you will be regularly handling data, making financial calculations and writing reports to evaluate options and make recommendations, you will need to have GCSE qualifications in Maths and English at grade C or 4 or above (or equivalent qualifications at NVQ level 2, such as CSE grade 1 or T-levels or O-levels at A-C).
As an employer, we strongly value diversity and strive to provide a working environment where everyone can thrive and is engaged and happy at work. People join us with a wide variety of previous career and life paths. We offer opportunities to everyone, don’t mind if you’ve taken a career break or been unemployed and judge each application on merit.
