Date posted: 01/05/2020
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, and you’ll support the technology that procures and manages more than £700m of goods, works and services. As our Senior Systems and P2P Officer, you’ll ensure that our procurement systems deliver both the organisation’s needs and continuous improvement.
Working as part of the Procurement Systems team, you’ll provide expert technical knowledge and support on the effective use of our processes and technology. But you won’t just maintain the status quo – we’re overhauling our procurement technical architecture, and this is your opportunity to help shape our future technology solution.
You’ll work closely with the council’s Finance team, ensuring that all aspects of the Purchase-to-Pay (P2P) lifecycle run seamlessly and that our processes support our customers’ needs.
You’ll have a passion for technology and an expert understanding of how this can be applied to help manage large, complex supply chain operations.
With a strong customer focus, you’ll ensure that our systems and processes are not only fit for corporate purposes but are easy to use and add value to the daily work of internal users. Never satisfied with how things are, you’ll constantly look for new and improved ways of doing things and will have lots of examples of proactively making improvements in the past.
A highly logical thinker, you’ll have a natural knack for understanding complex processes. You’ll be able to demystify these and explain them simply to customers – and will always be looking for opportunities to make things simpler, clearer and more efficient.
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.
