Lambeth is one of the most diverse and dynamic local authorities, leading on numerous London wide initiatives and with an enviable reputation for good quality and highly valued services. Lambeth is facing great challenges in balancing the needs of the borough and its residents with the ever tightening resources; to do this we need the best commercial outcomes from all our relationships. We have ambitious development and regeneration plans for the borough to provide growth in employment, housing and opportunities.

Our Procurement team is establishing a Category Management approach and also developing a range of partnerships to provide opportunities and resilience. We need an enthusiastic and commercially astute individual to cover the role of a Senior Procurement Officer. Within a customer focused team you’ll lead and support a range of category project work.

You will need to have experience of running tender processes in the public sector including those above OJEU thresholds, ideally in a category management setting and be at least part qualified CIPS or equivalent. You will need to demonstrate an ability to understand client needs and work with internal and external project teams to secure the support of all stakeholders.

This is an exciting time for Lambeth; if you’d like to enhance your skills and work on some of the most interesting projects in local government then we’d like to hear from you. This role is open for job share or part time working. We also provide support in professional development and career progression opportunities.

The closing date for receiving the completed application forms is Monday, 28 August 2017 at midnight.
