Procurement Specialist

Napier, New Zealand

Reference: 5468711

Fixed term until March 2022 working 40 hours per week (Monday to Friday)

Napier is a lively and dynamic city, offering an exceptional climate as well as plentiful opportunities for family, recreation and relaxation. Improved road and air links are helping to make Napier one of New Zealand's most popular, liveable and easily accessible cities.

Napier City Council is one of Napier's biggest and most desirable employers - we value excellence, integrity, sustainability and outstanding customer and community service.

We are looking for that 'someone' who has the experience in infrastructure procurement and is able to consider the existing ways we procure, and help drive our procurement practices forward. This exciting fixed term role will work closely with the Procurement Lead, to lead and support improvement opportunities within the procurement space.

You will be a dynamic problem solver with a proven background in procurement, in particular identifying and delivering sustainable and efficient cost savings across a wide range of business units, and negotiating terms of contracts while managing stakeholder expectations at the same time.

We're looking for proven experience within the infrastructure industry, ideally in either 3 Waters or Civil Engineering, and experience within a local government environment would be an advantage.

Key requirements for the role:

  • Tertiary qualification in a relevant discipline
  • Procurement / supply chain knowledge and a high level of commercial awareness
  • Experience of using the NZS3910:2013 suite of contracts (preferred)

We are an equal opportunity employer and we value diversity. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, or disability status although applicants must have existing rights to work in New Zealand.

Our preferred candidates will be required to undergo pre-employment screening which will include drug testing and, for some roles, health screening.
