At One Manchester we work together to provide homes and help communities to learn, manage their money, launch successful businesses and improve their employability. We transform communities and we change lives. Join us as a Procurement Manager to see the difference your work can make to the people in our communities.

As a Procurement Manager you’ll provide leadership and direction for all procurement and contracting activities across One Manchester, including supplier management and development, strategic planning and execution, and contract and risk management activities.  You’ll lead a professional, pro-active and value-adding procurement function which simplifies the process for users, and enables some “self-serve” procurement activity with minimal procurement team input within a risk managed framework. 

You’ll also work with colleagues to provide practical and accessible advice to service users on all aspects of procurement and contracting, including advising on contract and supplier failure and will ensure that the function operates in accordance with any health, safety and environmental policies and procedures to ensure the safety and wellbeing of self, staff and visitors.

You’ll also enjoy variety and a sense of purpose as you can get involved in the great work we do for communities. We want you to work collaboratively, contributing wherever you can to improve the places and communities that we serve. 

We have a real focus on ensuring everyone feels part of One Team and it’s important that you know how you fit into the bigger picture. Working within the Governance, Assurance & Risk team, you’ll build strong relationships with colleagues at all levels providing advice, guidance and support wherever needed. 

We’re looking for someone who is truly passionate about procurement, can make things happen and drive change. 

This is a hugely rewarding role where you’ll really see the difference you make to people’s lives every day. At One Manchester we’re supportive, flexible and rightly proud of our work. We’re also really excited about the future. You’ll get a brilliant benefits package and so much support and guidance. So, join us now and see the difference you can make in our great city. 

If this sounds like you then apply today, we’d love to hear from you.

Closing date is 16 August and interviews/assessments will take place from late August onwards.
