A warm welcome from Gerald Almeroth
The City of Westminster is a place like no other. It is a vibrant place at the heart of one of the world’s great capitals, offering a wealth of opportunities for residents, businesses and more than 28.5 million tourists who visit each year.
Westminster City Council believes that every single one of us has a part to play in creating a City for All – whether council or partner, resident or business, voluntary group or visitor.
Together, we are creating a city where people are born into a supportive and safe environment, grow and learn throughout their lives, build fantastic careers in world-leading industries, have access to high quality, affordable homes and retire into the community with dignity and pride. And we’re doing this in partnership and at pace. Our new commercial and procurement team, led by the Director of Commercial Partnerships, will play pivotal roles in making this happen.
These are opportunities to transform the procurement service for Westminster City Council and some bi-borough services that we share with the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, taking professional accountability for more than £700m of third party spend in total.
We welcome applications from candidates from a broad range of backgrounds. You may have worked in public, private or voluntary sector organisations and will bring with you the best of what you have learned and achieved. What is most important is that, whatever your background, you will be recognised as a true leader in procurement best practice and will bring with you outstanding skills in building relationships and delivering change. We also celebrate diversity and are committed to being an inclusive employer that is representative of the communities we serve. What matters most at Westminster is that you live our values and are committed to doing the best for our customers.
I look forward to receiving your application.
Gerald Almeroth, Executive Director Finance and Resources
