Job description

The purpose of the Head of Procurement is to be able to build effective relationships with a wide range of stakeholders. You will be naturally collaborative and consistently pragmatic, understanding how to use procurement principles and best practice, in a way which drives good business outcomes and supports strategic goals. If you would like to find out more about the role and what it’s like to work at the NCIs, please join us for a webinar on Wednesday 17th July 2024 at 12:15pm where you can hear from the hiring manager and colleagues within the team and across the organisation. Click here to sign up.

About the role

You’ll be responsible for leading the development of our Procurement Strategy and the associated policies and processes, as well as managing key procurement activity, increasing the skills of colleagues and developing our approach to reporting and compliance. You will be responsible for promoting good procurement practice with regards to sustainability, ethical purchasing and whole life costing. 

Your core responsibilities will include: 

  • Formulating, developing and maintaining an integrated procurement strategy for the NCIs, identifying key areas of opportunity and risk and working with relevant stakeholders to achieve value for money and savings targets
  • Identifying and developing strategic supplier relationships that support the delivery of NCI objectives and are in sympathy with the ethos of the Church of England
  • Ensuring procurement policies and practices promote compliance with relevant regulations including anti-fraud/bribery/corruption legislation and other applicable laws
  • Identifying ways to continuously improve processes and drive efficiency savings throughout the procurement cycle
  • Leading the tender process for awarding high value/high risk contracts, ensuring business requirements are understood and delivered, and that competitive, best practice processes are followed and documented
  • Building procurement capability across the NCIs through undertaking relevant training and awareness activities with staff in order to promote a best practice procurement approach, ensuring appropriate guidance and materials are available on the NCI intranet site to resource and inform staff

About you

The Church of England is for everyone and we want to reflect the diversity of the communities we serve across the whole country. Therefore, while of course we welcome all applications from all interested and suitably experienced people, we would particularly welcome applicants from UK Minoritised Ethnicities (UKME)/Global Majority Heritage (GMH) and other under-represented groups. 

You will be naturally collaborative and consistently pragmatic, understanding how to use procurement principles and best practice in a way which drives good business outcomes and supports strategic goals, rather than being an end in themselves.

You will also need:

  • MCIPS qualification and good knowledge of contract law
  • significant professional procurement experience as a procurement manager or similar in a large, muti-stakeholder, multi-entity complex organisation
  • Proven track record of delivering substantial cost savings and improving stakeholder procurement practice 
  • A commitment to the NCIs’ values, which will underpin your approach to work, including how you use your excellent negotiation skills. 

About the NCIs 

The National Church Institutions comprises a wide variety of teams, professions and functions that support the mission and ministries of the Church of England in its vision to be a church, centred on Jesus Christ, for the whole nation - a church that is simpler, humbler, bolder.

We Include. You Belong.

Our Belonging and Inclusion Strategy aims for everyone in the National Church Institutions (NCIs) to feel that they belong and are valued for who they are and what they contribute. Together, our people contribute in different ways towards our common purpose, whichever NCI they work in and whatever their background.

Living out our values in all that we do, we:

  • Strive for Excellence
  • Show Compassion
  • Respect others
  • Collaborate
  • Act with Integrity

We believe our commitment to belonging and inclusion fuels our progress and drives us forward. The NCIs are a safe, inclusive workplace for people of all backgrounds and walks of life. We welcome applications from people of all faiths and of no faith. We want to encourage applications from a diverse group of people who share our values.  Even if you have never thought about working for us before, if you have the skills and experience, we’re looking for then we would like to hear from you.

What we offer 

Our benefits include:

  • A salary of circa £73,000 per annum, plus age-related pension contributions between 8-15% of salary. We will also match any pension contributions you make up to an additional 3% of salary.
  • 30 days annual leave plus three additional NCI days
  • Flexible working hours and location, with an expectation of 2-3 days per week in our office in Westminster
  • Structured induction programme and access to a range of development opportunities including apprenticeships
  • Access to Occupational Health, and an Employee Assistance Programme 
  • Opportunity to join the Civil Service Sports & Social Club, and get involved in a range of staff networks, groups and societies

We try to be as flexible as we can in your work pattern to support you with other commitments, and to give a good work-life balance.
