We will count on you to work with internal customers and suppliers to deliver the best deal on all goods and services, and to promote best practice.

Our tenants and leaseholders are at the heart of everything we do, and we’ll look to you to encourage them to get involved.

An excellent communicator able to fully involve stakeholders, you will bring the negotiation, project management, analytical and numerical skills needed to seal the deal. With a graduate diploma in Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply, an equivalent qualification, or a substantial track record in the field, you will display a positive, fresh-thinking approach to your work, happy to embrace new ideas, and the strong customer focus needed to excel at this role.
