Procurement manager – permanent

Salary from £50,000 to £60,000

London Docklands

An organisation our size relies on the supply of a wide range of goods and services to make sure we can work effectively and deliver an excellent service to our customers.  Our procurement team delivers an efficient and effective procurement service to support the needs of the organisation. We’re a contracting authority that falls within the remit of the Public Contract Regulations 2015, so we need to comply with EU procurement legislation, as well as delivering great value for money.

As a procurement manager, you’ll be managing a range of procurement projects, particularly focussing on IT and digital solutions. You’ll be responsible for creating and implementing procurement strategies and helping us to develop our procurement policies and procedures. Your expert knowledge will be crucial in helping us manage the risks we might face around our procurement activities.         

To be considered for the role, you must meet the following:  
  • You’ll have experience within IT Procurement with a thorough understanding of IT suppliers and markets.
  • You’ll have significant experience of public sector procurement and will have led EU compliant procurement projects, as well as sourcing from frameworks.
  • You’ll have excellent communication and stakeholder management skills and enjoy working in a fast-paced environment.
  • You’ll be a member of CIPS (Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply) and have experience of the IT category.

What can you expect? 

Successful candidates will enjoy the opportunity to develop their careers in a diverse organisation which offers a generous pension, private healthcare, free onsite gym and wellness initiatives. It also includes access to an extensive range of flexible benefits including dental and travel insurance.

Who we are…   
 

With fairness at the heart of everything we do, we embrace difference and treat everyone as equals. We’re a diverse organisation, but something we all share is our values. They’re central to the way we work – and work together. 

We’re an independent, not-for-profit organisation that sorts out disputes between financial businesses and their customers. We do this by making decisions that are fair – and feel fair to both sides. 

The Financial Ombudsman Service is an equal opportunities employer. All applicants will be treated in a fair and equal manner and in accordance with the law, regardless of gender, marital status, race, religion, colour, age, disability or sexual orientation. 

We’re committed to being a great place to work – attracting and developing people from the widest possible range of backgrounds. We want everyone to perform at their best and feel able to be themselves. We understand that if we’re diverse and inclusive, we’ll better understand different perspectives, which is fundamental to our job resolving financial complaints. You can read more about this here.
