Our Public Procurement and Sourcing Team has grown rapidly over the last couple of years and we have ambitious plans to continue this growth. We are looking for talented individuals with experience of delivering consulting in this sector.
Our Consultants are responsible for the devising, organising, and implementing high scale projects that are very complex in nature.

• Category management

Experience within the Public Sector (and running OJEU procurement procedures) is essential, alongside experience in other sectors either in operational roles or in a consultancy capacity.
Current knowledge in common categories (such as construction, energy & utilities, facilities management, human resources, IT, marketing, logistics, office supplies, professional services, travel) and public sector specialist categories (such as defence, medical, social care and waste) is highly desirable.
MCIPS, including work towards the qualification, is desirable.
An appreciation of supply chain issues will be an advantage.
