This leading Management Consultancy has an exciting opportunity to join their Procurement Transformation Consulting team who are helping major clients in the UK central government and the wider public sector, through key periods of process and policy changes due out next year.

These exciting new roles will have two key parts to them:

You will firstly skilfully facilitate online training events that inspire and motivate attendees to build on their technical understanding of a wider change programme associated with the move from the current regime (PCR 2015) to the new regime (estimated to be live later in 2024) called Transforming Public Procurement (TPP).

There will also be opportunities to work on other public sector procurement transformation and learning and development programmes where you could be taking responsibility for managing projects and leading diverse internal teams supported by sub-contractors and client staff members.

What will you need to do it?

  • Detailed knowledge of public sector procurement processes, including category management, strategic sourcing, contract management, supply relationship management, purchase to pay (P2P) and supplier risk management.
  • Working knowledge and experience of the end-to-end procurement transformation programmes in relation to public procurement policies, directives and regulations, operating model or technology led changes.
  • Proven experience in facilitating virtual workshops or training session, enthusing and coaching, with the ability to create a positive learner-focused online experience.

Skills they'd love to see/Amazing Extras:

  • Working knowledge and experience of the Defence and Security Public Contracts Regulations 2011 and the Utilities Contracts Regulations 2016.
  • Experience of complex cost reduction programmes across direct and indirect spend, including the use of advanced procurement analytics techniques, tools and approaches.
  • Experience of change management in complex public sector, multi-business unit and/or multi-geography environments.
  • Affiliation to a commercial professional body such as the Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply (CIPS).
  • Demonstrable knowledge of the current procurement technology market and trends including providers such as Jaggaer, Oracle, Atamis, SAP/Ariba and Coupa.

These roles provide an excellent opportunity to play a leading role in what is probably one of the largest public sector procurement transformations programmes in recent times and through your expertise you will assist a wide range public sector organisations to achieve many of the benefits that the new TPP frameworks are designed to provide.

This client operates a flexible hybrid working model and these roles can be based from anywhere in the UK, with some occasional travel to offices or client sites around the UK.
