All Flexible and remote work patterns considered, NHS experience not essential. A Fantastic opportunity in a newly created role, for a Buyer who’s looking to join a supportive team within the NHS.
Pennine Care NHS FT have recently been through a corporate restructure and are now ready to appoint to a number of vacant roles. Mental health services are facing unprecedented growth and expansion and an increased presence in the media with athletes and celebrities openly discussing their conditions. As such there has never been a more exciting time to join an NHS mental health provider.
This particular role is a Senior Buyer, and we are looking for individuals who may not be currently working in the NHS but if you have the relevant experience and desire to work in the NHS, we’d like to hear from you.
This role involves providing support to the Procurement Manager, ensuring that a cost effective purchasing work programme is developed and maintained to help achieve the Trust’s financial savings targets.
The Senior Buyer will be the Procurement lead for a designated work stream and to lead on self-identified and allocated projects under the direction of the Procurement Manager, delivering against agreed timescales and outcomes for Trust devolved business units (DBU)/divisions. This will include sourcing and procuring goods, equipment, materials and services which meet customer requirements by demonstrating value for money and promoting an integrated approach to procurement.
We are seeking applications from individuals who have the drive, passion and ability to make a difference. You must have significant experience in a finance role with excellent relationship building skills. You will be a good influencer with strong communication and analytical skills.
Flexible and remote work patterns considered.
We will offer you development opportunities to ensure you have the necessary skills to progress further with your career and in return, we expect candidates to be passionate, flexible and hard-working and focused on driving the departmental objectives forward. Previous NHS experience is not a necessary requirement.
