Permanent Contract

Bored with the same old procurement activity? Join us at Thurrock Council! We are transforming our procurement service and are recruiting a new procurement professional to a role that truly adds value. There is high volume procurement activity in the Council; this role will - at least at the start - concentrate in the ICT and central resources areas.

We are seeking an enthusiastic and motivated individual with well rounded procurement experience who will be a team player and be able to work closely with stakeholders in an client focused environment. You will need excellent communication skills, patience and tenacity; able to work within a diverse project team to support clients and be the conduit between the end user and Procurement/other specialists.

In return you'll be part of a flexible and friendly team within a service that encourages innovation and autonomy but is committed to professional development.

If you have any questions, would like to discuss this further or generally interested in joining #TeamThurrock, please contact us via email on or by telephone on 01375 652664.

Closing Date: 8 September 2019

We have seen 7,000 new jobs created, with a further 30,000 anticipated in the next 20 years, and 1,170 new businesses in the borough, with leading centres in ports and logistics, retail and creative industries.
