Procurement Manager

Job Reference: 229-CP498-53

Wye Valley NHS Trust
Procurement - Corporate
Hereford, Birmingham, Nuneaton, Warwick
£40,057 - £45,839 pa


Wye Valley NHS Trust is a member of an NHS Foundation Group with South Warwickshire NHS FT and the George Eliot Hospital NHS Trust.

Located on the border with Wales in the shadow of the Black Mountains, we provide acute and community services across Herefordshire and into parts of Powys and run Hereford County Hospital and the community hospitals in Bromyard, Leominster and Ross-on-Wye.

We are a progressive and forward looking trust with ambitious plans to improve quality and integrate patient pathways through close collaborative working with our partners to deliver the quality of care we’d want for our family and friends.

More than 3,000 people work for the Trust – they tell us it’s a great place to work, blending the busyness of a DGH with the benefits of working in a beautiful rural and unspoilt county like Herefordshire.

The fact that we’re rural hasn’t hampered our ambitious plans to be the best we can. We’re a “fast follower” in the NHS Digital Clinical IT Exemplar programme, we’ve just signed a multi-million pound deal with Philips to ensure we have the latest radiology equipment and we’re in the process of having three new wards built.

We can offer a great work-life balance and have a fine tradition of working with staff to help them achieve their full potential.

Russell Hardy, Trust Chairman: “The strength of the Trust is its amazing staff; a great place to work, a great place to develop your career and a great place to reach your potential.”

Our values - Care, Accountability, Respect and Excellence - are at the heart of all we do. We believe in providing the right care in the right place at the right time…all the time.
