Date posted: 01/08/2020
Salary: £33,759 - 47,724 per annum
Westminster City Council is the proud custodian of the heart of the nation’s capital – we host some of the most vibrant communities, from the world-renowned Soho to richly diverse Church Street. We are home to some of the world’s most iconic features including Oxford Street, UK Government, the Royal Household and the bustling West End, and attract a million visitors a day to our city. We house over 50,000 businesses that sustain more than 700,000 jobs.
Our City for All vision is to provide world class services to the residents and communities we serve. We will do this by creating a greener and cleaner city, vibrant communities and one of the best connected, most technologically advanced cities in the world.
Join us as a Senior Procurement Analyst, and you’ll help change the way the council procures more than £700m of goods, works and services.
You’ll blend expert data analysis with research into the council’s key supply markets to develop true commercial insight. As part of the Procurement Policy, Performance and Systems team, you’ll support colleagues within Procurement and across the council to improve decision making through the expert use of data, research, evidence and insight.
You’ll draw on all the available sources of intelligence to derive the key insight the council needs to go forward with confidence and achieve the best commercial outcomes.
Highly logical, you’ll have a passion for the power of data and its potential to transform organisational strategy.
You’ll be in your element when working with large, complex datasets and you’ll be skilled at cutting through this complexity to tell decision makers what they really need to know. You won’t just be inward facing, but will look externally, too, identifying developments and trends in the council’s key supply markets so that we can anticipate risks and make the most of commercial opportunities.
Outstanding ICT skills and confidence with complex data are a must. The best candidates will also use excellent communication skills to present findings, whether written, visually or verbally, in a simple, clear and compelling way that really tells the story.
A great place to grow
We know that the best results are generated when our people have the freedom to flourish. It’s how we set standards that others seek to emulate. So you can expect to enjoy agile working and targeted personal and professional development. We work hard to create a progressive and diverse working environment, including benefits like shared parental leave and flexible working opportunities.
