Where can you buy into people, teams and innovation?
At Anglian Water, that's where. Delivering the essentials of life to more than 6 million customers, for the UK's largest water company, is ultimately about working with people, liaising with teams - and looking to continually innovate. That pioneering approach has seen our 40-strong Supply Chain team become a vital part of our strategic growth and operational excellence - and this is your chance to develop your influence across functions, procuring an incredibly varied asset base; making a real difference to what we do and how we do it, in a team that "loves every drop".
Developing our long-term planning to meet your stakeholder and operational needs, you'll enjoy a role that's wide-ranging and far-reaching: managing a programme of Sourcing activity that covers our 37,000 km mains network, the complex IT which powers our incredibly sophisticated business, the Partner and Alliance services so critical to our delivery - and everything else needed to deliver a world-class service from the Humber to the Thames. As an IT Buyer you will be confident in buying hardware & accessories, software, telecommunications, telemetry and IT services.
No two projects will be the same - from ensuring strategy is aligned and agreements support the Purchase to Pay process, to providing commercial support to framework managers, proactively managing supplier performance; and working with all stakeholders to ensure that best practice is embedded throughout the supply chain, on projects that range from £100k up to £40 million in value.
As an individual with experience within a fast paced procurement environment, more junior members of the team will look to you to provide coaching, support and guidance through a variety of routine and complex issues
Ideally, you'll be educated to degree level in Procurement, Business Studies or similar, with CIPS under your belt (or you may be working towards it), good commercial acumen, a blend of mathematical reasoning, negotiation skills, creative thinking - and the type of upbeat personality that builds relationships, pushes the possibilities (and gets things done!).
Bring us that and we offer a good salary, excellent benefits (including the option of homeworking and possibly a relocation package if necessary) - plus exceptional prospects, in a dynamic team environment. Where better to take your next career step than with us?
Due to continued growth and adapting to flexible project work we are expanding our team on an on- going basis to meet our demanding stakeholders.
Anglian Water is not your typical water company. Just take a look at our Love Every Drop strategy that underpins everything that we do and you'll start to get a feel for our culture. It's collaborative, innovative and inspiring. We put people at the heart of our business and we truly love what we do! If you care about excellent customer service, your career and the environment, then we want to hear from you. We believe that equal opportunities means inclusion, diversity and fair treatment for all.
