A thorough understanding of procurement processes is essential.
There couldn’t be a better time to join a progressive and forward thinking organisation that operates with a financial head and a social heart. If you understand the local area and have a passion for delivering plans that truly align with organisational objectives, then we really would like to hear from you.
