Senior Category Manager
Liverpool is a strong and growing city built on fairness. Almost £5-billion of regeneration has transformed the city since 2010, with another £9-billion in the pipeline over the next decade. Our plans include delivering 10,000 new homes, Everton FC’s new stadium, a new cruise terminal, a £25-million TV and film studio, £250-million investment in our road network and two million square ft of commercial office space.
This is a big city with big ambitions – more than 445,000 people live here, over 50,000 students study here and millions visit each year. Ambitious cities need talented people.
We are recruiting a Senior Category Manager to work within our award-winning Commercial Procurement Unit. The role is to lead procurement strategy and influence our Social Care category, working closely with adult and children’s services including Public Health. Our procurement professionals play a vital role in developing and driving the best possible outcomes for Liverpool, including supporting its Fair City and Social Value agenda.
Appropriate category expertise is required, preferably gained within a public sector environment. What is more important, however, is drive, ambition, creativity, influencing skills and the ability to work in a fast-paced environment at the cutting edge of public sector procurement. If this is you, then we want to hear from you. In return, you can expect a rewarding career in a challenging and supportive environment.
