Smart buying is important in any organisation, but for us every penny saved helps improve the education of young people across East Anglia.
As an education charity, the Inspiration Trust is dedicated to giving the very best life chances to pupils in Norfolk and north Suffolk through our family of 14 schools that range from nursery through to sixth form. We specialise in improving some of the toughest schools, and our family includes those that have already made the journey to become the top schools in the area, and those still on that path. Your job is to help empower school leaders to focus on what happens in the classroom, by ensuring they have the best suppliers and greatest resources possible.
We are seeking a head of procurement to join our Trust who will work closely with the chief operating officer and head of finance to deliver substantial and sustainable savings on the wide array of goods and services that the Trust purchases.
The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate a commercially astute and systematic approach to delivering value for money through procurement in a large and complex organisation. Whilst it would be helpful if you had knowledge of the sector, we are open to fresh ideas and will offer support and training to ensure you are as successful as possible in this role.
