Procurement Manager

Take the opportunity to shape a new team within an organisation with a significant growth portfolio.

We need an experienced Procurement Manager to lead a specialist team that will develop, embed, and maintain fit for purpose procurement across Waikato District Council. Obviously, we require controls and risk mitigation but what our communities really need is strategic thought and innovation. Value sought through, effective negotiation, and process efficiencies are a given but added value through a social procurement lens is where we aim to be.

What will you do?

You will have the exciting opportunity of building your own team with two new supporting roles being vacant. A clear and defined roadmap is in place for the development of procurement across the business but awaits your personal touch. You will be part of a wider virtual delivery team that includes the project management office and contract management teams. As a growth council, the programme of works ahead is significant and varied.

Ideally, you will have significant experience in best practice procurement with associated qualifications. You will be a great communicator and team player while demonstrating the values of Waikato District Council.

You will find a flexible working environment that allows you to achieve your best while also equally benefiting our people, our customers and the business.

Why join our team

We are an organisation embracing flexible working; while this role is based in north Waikato's Ngaruawahia, just 10 minutes from Hamilton, you have the possibility of working anywhere across our district in a manner that works for you, the business and our communities. Sounds perfect right?
