Procurement is one of the key activities of the public sector, accounting for billions of public money every year. Here at Enfield we understand that decisions about what we buy and commission are fundamental to everything we do - from providing excellent services to our residents and cutting costs to ensuring fairness and compliance with legislation.
If procurement is home ground for you and you would like to help us do even better, then we may have the opportunity for you. We are looking for an individual, who can support the Procurement Business Process Team, supporting our procurement systems (Neptune, Purchase Cards and London Tenders Portal) and processes. On a day to day basis you will support data entry / validation for Supplier Creation and Purchase Cards or supporting projects to develop existing systems or processes.
It will mean working with Council Officers and Suppliers balancing the need to support Council objectives and ensure that all Enfield's procurement activities are fully compliant with EU and UK law. You will assist in training, support of processes and systems and support Procurement Managers.
You will work in a cohesive and collaborative team focussed on delivering fast, high quality results.
Fixed Term post/Secondment Opportunity
An external candidate, including Enfield Council agency workers, would be appointed on a fixed term contract, whilst internal candidates who are Council employees, would normally be expected to take up the post on a secondment basis.
To be eligible to apply for a secondment, Enfield Council employees must have completed probation and must have discussed/agreed the proposed secondment with their line manager. Fixed term contracts may be considered where secondment is not possible.
Secondments are the temporary loan of an employee from one part of the organisation to another part of the organisation and rely on the secondee to return to their substantive position on completion of the secondment.
Why it's great to work for Enfield Council
- An excellent pension through the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS).
- Up to 31 days annual leave depending on grade and length of service. You will also get eight public holidays per year and an extra day off at Christmas.
- Interest free season ticket loan repayable over three or ten months.
- Career development and learning experiences from a range of training courses and learning methods.
- Employee Assistance Programme to provide advice and counselling services. This is a free and confidential service available to staff and members of their family.
- Health and leisure discounts and tax-free bikes for work.
