The vision is to deliver an excellent procurement, logistics and supplies service which focusses on continuous improvement, delivers value for the Trusts in terms of savings and efficiencies and improves outcomes for patients.

Please refer to the Job Description for more details.

The candidate will be capable, enthusiastic, a strong communicator and be able to take responsibility for the management of a Category Team and drive the delivery of agreed projects within the LPC workplan.

The successful applicant will bring energy and customer focus to the role. It is important that we recruit the best possible candidates, recognising that innovation and continuous improvement will be key to delivering sustainable NHS services for the future.
