Are you looking for an opportunity to further your knowledge and experience within procurement and the public sector?

Your Housing Group is a next generation housing provider. With our pioneering, workforce, we are working together to build as many quality houses as possible and play our part in solving the current housing crisis. With 28,000+ homes across the North West, our portfolio is large and diverse.

Our portfolio ranges from social and affordable rentals, through to retirement living developments and innovative private rental offers.

Your Housing Group is growing and evolving, and this makes it a great time to join the business. We have recently secured Strategic Partner status with Homes England and we plan to continue to invest substantially in both the development of new homes and into our existing properties over the next 5 years, and budget has already been secured for these major programmes of work

We are currently looking for a Procurement Officer to join an established and dynamic team; who will manage several direct procurement categories related to Asset, based on Your Housing Group's approach to procurement.

In the role you will lead associated sourcing activities to ensure efficient and effective contracts are established which deliver best value, drive performance and achieve the required quality to support the aims and objectives of the business.

This will include: ensuring contracts are procured well-ahead of expiry, ensuring compliance with the PCR 2015, ensuring compliance with YHG's Operational Standing Orders (OSOs), ensuring savings are identified and realised, ensuring contract documentation is signed and recorded on the Group Contract Register, ensuring any procurement projects managed are delivered to timeframes agreed with stakeholders.

Alongside a very competitive basic salary of £32k - £35k (pro-rata) you will receive fantastic benefits including 33 days holidays (pro-rata), a pension matched up to 8% and the ability to manage your own life with our home working scheme - meaning you will no longer be tied to an office chair after an already hefty commute everyday of your working life.
