NHS Highland is looking to recruit an experienced Procurement professional into the role of Procurement Team Manager. This post is based in Inverness and reporting directly to, and deputising for NHS Highland’s Head of Procurement. Working in a team that was rated as A+ in its most recent external assessment, this role will suit an individual with a desire to develop themselves and their team to deliver best practice public procurement within the Scottish public sector.

Managing and leading other procurement professionals, you will be responsible for leading NHS Highland’s procurement processes from start to finish, embedding the Highland Quality Approach (HQA) of continuous improvement in everything that we do. Working with clinical, managerial and operational colleagues right across the NHS, you will provide leadership and influence across a large range of commodities and will be positively engaged with a diverse range of suppliers and other stakeholders.

The Scottish Procurement landscape, and our team, have undergone a lot of changes in recent years, and the next few years will be no different, so we welcome candidates who can demonstrate flexibility and adaptability and the ability to plan and develop the knowledge and skills of all members of the team, including yourself, to allow us to deal with the challenges of the future as proactively as possible.

Given the complex nature of this position, it is recommended that potential candidates for this position consider contacting Neil Stewart, Head of Procurement for NHS Highland, for an informal discussion about the post prior to submitting an application.
