Senior Procurement Manager: Procurement Delivery
Band 5 £66,516 - £93,348 per annum
Westminster City Council is the proud custodian of the heart of the nation’s capital – we host some of the most vibrant communities, from the world-renowned Soho to richly diverse Church Street. We are home to some of the world’s most iconic features including Oxford Street, UK Government, the Royal Household and the bustling West End, and attract a million visitors a day to our city. We house over 50,000 businesses that sustain more than 700,000 jobs.
Our City for All vision is to provide world class services to the residents and communities we serve. We will do this by creating a greener and cleaner city, vibrant communities and one of the best connected, most technologically advanced cities in the world.
Join us, and you will lead a team working on some of our most innovative projects, including our cutting-edge regeneration schemes at Church Street and the Oxford Street District. You’ll lead a team of 20 procurement professionals, covering the full range of council services – from Public Health initiatives to major works and ICT. You’ll oversee a diverse, exciting and challenging programme of work, using your leadership skills and technical expertise to support the delivery of up to 200 projects, worth around £200m, at any one time.
An expert manager of people, projects and resources, you’ll be at ease managing multiple priorities and keeping things on track. You’ll bring expert technical knowledge to the role but, as the manager of the largest team in the new Procurement Service, you’ll also coach and develop your staff to achieve their personal ambitions and those of the council. Westminster City Council believes that everyone has talent, and an important part of your role will be to bring out the best in people and let them shine.
To do this, you’ll bring experience of successfully managing large teams to the role. You’ll be equally at ease with stakeholders, working with colleagues on the management team to plan complex programmes of work and align resources to council priorities and customer expectations.
A great place to grow
We know that the best results are generated when our people have the freedom to flourish. It’s how we set standards that others seek to emulate. So you can expect to enjoy agile working and targeted personal and professional development. We work hard to create a progressive and diverse working environment, including benefits like shared parental leave and flexible working opportunities.
