Your new company
You will be working for an extremely well known public sector organisation who are based in Birmingham City Centre. They are restructuring their procurement team and you will be joining at a time to put in place a new strategy and help in the development of the procurement team. Alongside this it is an extremely interesting time to join with a huge number of really interesting projects in the pipeline at the moment.
Your new role
This is a fantastic opportunity and not one that comes around often. You will be tasked with creating a new strategy, defining and implementing policies and providing a high level of service and advice to the procurement team and senior internal stakeholders. You will provide full operational and financial accountability for Procurement and Contract Management. You will be reporting into and working very closely with the CFO who is also based in Birmingham to create a strategy and plan for procurement. Because of the nature of some of the projects that the organisation is currently working on and procuring you may need to get involved with tendering and running OJEU level procurements to help the team in busy periods of time.
What you'll need to succeed
You will have a strong background in managing procurement teams at a senior operational level but still have the knowledge and ability to roll your sleeves up and get involved in tendering and running OJEU procurements. You will have a strong background in public sector procurement, a mix of public and private will also be considered. You will be someone that embraces working as a leader and not a boss, you will have be able to create a true sense of teamwork and instil this into the procurement department.
What you'll get in return
You will be paid between GBP70,000 - GBP80,000 depending on experience with a potential push on this for a candidate with the perfect experience and background. On top of this you will be joining an organisation that has a fantastic culture of rewarding its employees while working hard but also having a laugh.
