Scotland Excel is an award-winning Centre of Procurement Expertise providing a wide range of procurement, commissioning, consultancy, and learning and development services for our members.
Since 2008, we have helped to establish procurement as an effective driver for local and national economic growth and wellbeing. Our £2bn portfolio of collaborative contracts supports the delivery of savings, social value, community benefits, fair work practices and environmental policy, and covers a wide range of public services including construction, roads, transport, environment, corporate and education.
Scotland Excel also develops and manages arrangements which support the commissioning of care services for children and adults. Our national care contracts are developed in partnership with care professionals, including care providers, to support person-centred outcomes embedded within national policy.
We also provide procurement and consultancy services to help our members get the most from their procurement resources, ranging from ad-hoc tendering support through to transformation programmes and strategic procurement partnerships.
The Scotland Excel Academy offers applied learning programmes leading to accredited qualifications in procurement, leadership and management, coaching and mentoring, project management and business analysis, as well as short courses and workshops.
Scotland Excel is a non-profit organisation working with members from across the public sector including local authorities, health and social care partnerships, housing associations, and other public and third sector organisations.
About the roles
Over the past number of years Scotland Excel has experienced a growing demand for our expertise as a centre of excellence for public sector procurement from various local authorities and other organisations in the public domain. This has resulted in the establishment of a number of project-based initiatives that have delivered real savings to these organisations. Our expertise has also resulted in delivering transformational programmes that have successfully improved their procurement practices and strategies.
Going forward, it is evident that this trend is continuing to grow and in order to meet the demands of our clients we wish to expand our procurement teams across all sectors in the organisation.
We are seeking a wide range of procurement team members whether you are a seasoned professional looking for that next move into a challenging, exciting and rewarding role or someone who is looking to take the first steps into a career in public sector procurement. We welcome applications from all procurement backgrounds, whether it is public or private sector. What we ask you to bring is your enthusiasm and determination to make a difference to the members of society who benefit from our wide range of contracts.
In return, you will have the opportunity to progress your career in a leading procurement organisation operating across a diverse range of category areas. You will work with like-minded colleagues who get real satisfaction from supporting the delivery of essential public services and bringing social, economic and environmental benefits to our communities.
What we can offer you
As well as a competitive salary, you will have access to all the benefits of working for a public sector organisation including a defined benefits pension scheme, generous holiday allowance, flexible working, the possibility of remote working and a range of other initiatives which reflect our commitment to creating a positive work-life balance for all our employees.
