About the role
This is an exciting time to join Procurement at the Society. We are a brand new function supporting one of the fastest growing large charities in the country. Your core role will be to manage a portfolio of procurement projects across Marketing, Fundraising and beyond, but in addition you will work alongside the Head of Procurement to develop and embed the policies and procedures that will ensure that every pound we raise is spent effectively.
You will have excellent commercial skills honed within a fast-moving commercial environment.

You will have excellent interpersonal skills, a can-do attitude and a real enthusiasm for becoming involved in all aspects of the running of a new and growing procurement team.
Our employees work hard every day to make a true difference in people's lives. We are proud to support them with a range of benefits, recognition and many options for working agilely, all contributing to a strong work life balance.
