We are looking for an experienced and enthusiastic Procurement Manager to join our new Procurement team, helping to drive efficiency and best practice as we set up this new function across the organisation.

You will use your commercial focus and expertise to make a real impact across The Princes Trust to drive savings, being constantly challenged to come up with innovative ways of thinking and working closely with stakeholders to lead on procurement strategy, driving value for money, strategic projects and managing the supply chain for national contracts. As this is a new team the opportunities to make a difference are vast, and you will get involved in a huge variety of projects, from IT and Estates to Marketing and Events, and everything in-between - this means you’ll need to be dynamic and flexible and able to manage your own time well.
