Full Time
The Purchasing department at the University is responsible for a non-pay spend of approximately £250m and annually processes in excess of 100,000 purchasing transactions. Purchasing is currently delivered through a satellite/hub model to the 9 faculties and professional services which comprises the University. With effect from December 2016 three satellites and the central hub will co-locate into a single office.
This move will create some economies of scale in terms of the administrative tasks which each satellite/hub currently perform. The purpose of this post is to deliver a coordinated administrative support on behalf of the wider purchasing service, but specifically to the Satellite 2 Purchasing Office who purchase on behalf of the Faculties of Medicine and Health (FMH) and Biological Sciences (FBS). The senior purchasing administrator will have supervisory responsibility for the small team engaged in Purchasing Administration.
