Your new company
I am working with Transport for London who are looking to recruit an Interim Procurement Manager for a 6 month period. You will be joining a team of 16 who focus on the procurement of business as usual contracts within fleet. This role is inside IR35 so you may only be paid through an umbrella company or PAYE.
Your new role
Within your role, you will be leading on a number of procurement projects for material contracts. These materials are used to maintain a number of trains and tubes within London. You may also be asked to procure a small number of contracts within plant, track and signal. You will be leading on the end to end procurement process for these contracts as well as being responsible for post contract management. You may also have line management of 2 procurement agents.
What you'll need to succeed
To be considered for this role you must have a good grasp of the full procurement life cycle from letting a contract through to managing it. Particular experience of managing high value procurements within the rail and/or similar industries is strongly preferred. Good knowledge of pro contract and category management would be helpful. You must be a collaborative individual who is proactive and able to hit the ground running.
What you'll get in return
This is a fantastic opportunity where you will get the opportunity to take a lead on some high value projects, that will affect the wider work of TFL.
