Full Time


Take your team to the next level.

Here at Anglian Water, we're proud to be the biggest water supply and water recycling company within England and Wales. We serve around 6 million customers from the Humber in the north to the Thames in the south, from Daventry in the west to Lowestoft in the east. Providing water to this large number of homes and businesses is no mean feat and means we have a range of opportunities within our huge infrastructure.

This is your chance to take on a more management focussed role, and lead a team of supply chain professionals. Ready to roll up your sleeves and get involved, you'll mentor, motivate, develop and challenge your team members to take their skills to the next level. At the same time you will be working hands-on to develop a rolling 12-month programme of sourcing activity to meet stakeholder and operational needs. Alongside appointing framework partners following a strategic sourcing methodology, you will negotiate with suppliers on a spot buy basis.


To succeed in this role, you'll need a real flair for building relationships. And not only with the members of your team, you'll have the confidence to develop networks with suppliers and deliver excellent customer service. Ideally educated to degree level in procurement or with or working towards CIPS qualification, you will bring good commercial acumen, strong financial management skills and the mathematical reasoning to assess bids accurately. Proactive in your approach to driving process development, you will have a solutions-focused approach. Your ability to challenge the status quo will set you apart.

Take this opportunity and you'll gain great experience working with a wider range of products than you might be used to. It's a chance to learn and develop in new areas as part of a really friendly and welcoming team. What's more, you'll get great support from Anglian Water, including training, personal development and gaining qualifications. We'll also welcome your ideas and input, so you'll truly have the chance to shine.
