We are looking for talented professionals to join our award winning Group Procurement team, and currently have opportunities in London and Chesterfield. The sheer scope of transformational change at Royal Mail makes this is an exciting time to join us, and the scale and size of Royal Mail’s procurement requirements will provide many future development opportunities for the right people.
The role of Group Procurement is clear; to deliver first class value for the business and protect it from risk. We do this by being experts in the market from which we buy; being responsive and flexible to the business’ needs; developing innovative sourcing and category strategies that build on industry best practice; and tendering and negotiating the best commercial contracts.

We are interested in Procurement professionals who have experience in a range of spend categories but we have a particular interest if you have experience in Technology, Property and Fleet procurement.
You’ll probably be educated to degree level (or equivalent) and will have experience in a relevant role. CIPS qualified, or prepared to study towards CIPS accreditation, you will also be trained in the principles, tools and techniques of negotiation.
