Liverpool City Council 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 Adults 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. 

Almost £6 billion of regeneration has transformed the city since 2012, with another £13 billion in the pipeline over the next decade.

Our plans include delivering 10,000 new homes, a new cruise terminal, a £25 million TV and film studio, £500 million investment in our road network and 2 million sq ft of commercial office space.

It’s a city with culture running through its veins. Each year it plays host to an enviable programme of events which inspire audiences, push boundaries and make unforgettable memories.

This is a big city with big ambitions – almost 500,000 people live here, over 50,000 students study here and millions visit every year. Ambitious cities need talented people.

If you are talented, driven and highly skilled, we want to hear from you. You can expect a rewarding career in a fast-moving and supportive environment.

Come and be part of a dynamic team working hard to make Liverpool a strong and growing city, built on fairness.
