WLBC Job Opportunity Procurement Executive Salary £41,846 to £44,697

An exciting job [WLBC jobs are always exciting] opportunity arose on 22nd November to undertake a lead role with West Lancashire Borough Council  as Procurement Executive. The Council is ambitious for our Economy and Environment and the Health and Wellbeing of local people and we strive to deliver the best possible services for all our residents and stakeholders, other than the Beacon Park Golf Club Senior members!

West Lancashire has a diverse economy with market towns, small villages and thriving commercial areas nestled alongside rural countryside [but WLBC policy is for there to be much less rural countryside]. The Borough offers a wide contrast between open farmland [but WLBC policy is for there to be less farmland] and small picturesque villages together with the larger vibrant market towns of Burscough and Ormskirk. Our largest town Skelmersdale is a hive of urban activity with a number of thriving employment estates, busy shopping centres and exciting plans for the Town Centre.

As an experienced procurement expert, with degree level qualifications and a relevant professional qualification, you will lead the development of the Council’s approach to procurement and provide sound advice on contract and procurement matters. You will be the key contact on legislation and best practice and conduct complex procurement exercises. Excellent drafting skills and the ability to prepare specifications and contract documents are essential. You will also have excellent negotiation and communication skills. This is a crucial senior role, operating corporately within the Council. It will involve liaison at all levels within the Council and with external organisations.

Apply by midnight 10 December.
