Are you passionate about ensuring your organisation purchases the goods and services it needs to achieve its goals?
The Procurement Manager is responsible for ensuring that the organisation purchases the goods and services that will best help us achieve our goals. Generally, that means finding supplier partners that strike a balance between quality and cost.
Additionally, procurement manager responsibilities include reviewing past purchases made by the HCPC. This evaluation determines vendor effectiveness, compliance and ultimately, the business’s return on investment (ROI).
About the HCPC
The HCPC is a multi-professional healthcare regulator. Our goal is to provide an exceptional service to the public. We are responsible for setting and maintaining the standards of 15 health and care professions in order to do this. As a statutory body, we operate independently from the government and national health organisations.
Regulating in a pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic has had an enormous impact on healthcare professionals, and consequently, the HCPC. In response we have established a stronger focus on our core work, stepping up its speed and quality. Our teams have been placed under greater pressure than ever before, meaning that we are seeking individuals who can rise to this challenge.
About the role
Helping our colleagues grasp their potential, realise their ambitions and exceed expectations is what drives our Finance team.
We work compassionately and collaboratively to create the ideal environment for our colleagues to be exceptional and to deliver the sort of experience our registrants both deserve and expect.
Working as the trusted voice of Finance across the organisation, the team is encouraged to deliver innovative approaches with lasting impact.
You will be liaising with directors and senior managers across the organisation to fully understand their requirements for procurement advice and support. You will develop procurement arrangements to satisfy those requirements, and put in place regular feedback and review mechanisms.
This role is part-time (21 hours per week).
Equality, diversity and inclusion
The HCPC expects high standards from its registrants when it comes to equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) and provides insight that allows healthcare professions to uphold these. We take EDI issues seriously in our own staff team and ways of working.
As an equal opportunities employer we welcome applicants from all sections of the community and we promote equality of opportunity, diversity and inclusion.
