Operations Administrator.

Are you super-organised with a eye for detail and a passion for  to provide great customer support? If so, you could be perfect for our Operations Administrator role.

Earlier this year we announced a partnership which allows us to provide organisations in the public sector access to a new and disruptive procurement solution which is receiving a high level of interest and delivering a stream of new clients. As a result of the positive response we have received from the sector, we have an urgent need to increase the size and capability of our operations team to ensure a high level of customer service. The Operations Administrator role is therefore a key part of the procurement operations team that we are looking to fill as soon as possible.

What will you be doing? Day-to-day tasks are based around supporting with all administration areas of the procurement function. You’ll work with internal teams to understand customer needs to ensure an efficient process of documentation, communication and provide strong customer service to clients and suppliers. Building knowledge and developing strong relationships will be an important aspect, giving the opportunity to demonstrate your communication and organisational skills.

This is an opportunity to join a small but growing organisation where you will quickly develop your knowledge and capabilities, and would be particularly beneficial for someone seeking to develop into a procurement role.

Ideally, we are looking for someone with:

  • Previous experience in an office setting is essential, where you will have demonstrated an ability to multitask, prioritise and manage time efficiently.
  • As you’d expect for an administrative role, strong IT skills and sound working knowledge of Microsoft Excel, Word, Outlook (and ideally PowerPoint) are essential.
  • You’ll need to be super-organised with a strong attention to detail, as well as be an effective communicator – both written and verbal. Part of the role will be to guide new suppliers through an on-boarding process – full training will be given but thereafter you will be supporting new suppliers by telephone or by MS Teams.
  • Self-motivated with an ability to work independently as well as within a team.
  • Adaptable to change with a positive, ‘can-do’ attitude.
  • Some experience of providing customer service, listening/acknowledging/taking ownership/resolving.

Additional skills or experience we would like to see (but not essential):

  • Experience of buying or procurement processes.
  • Background in any organisation involved with the built environment, this could be construction services or materials, or facilities management.
  • Interest in developing a career in procurement and undertaking formal study such as CIPS.

This is a hybrid working role; commutable to our Northamptonshire office up to three days per week. We ideally require someone full-time but for the right person could consider part-time, for example to be flexible with personal commitments.

Salary: up to £25,000
