We are seeking an experienced Buyer to work closely with Procurement and supply chain colleagues. The successful candidate will support the Assistant Procurement Specialist and Procurement Managers in the delivery of the Trust annual cost improvement plan.  The individual will provide a high level of customer service to both internal and external stakeholders and will work on their own initiative in providing an effective procurement service.

The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate communication and prioritisation skills along with attention to detail and have the ability to work under pressure.

The successful candidate will be required to undertake purchasing activity and deliver medium/high value contracts for goods, equipment, services and maintenance etc and to ensure contract and catalogue compliance with Trust SFI’s and EU Procurement regulations.

University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust (UHS) is one of England's largest acute teaching trusts. We've recently been rated ‘Good’ by the CQC and in the latest national NHS Staff Survey we ranked seventh in the country for staff engagement, and fourth best nationally for our proportion of staff saying that they would recommend the hospital as a place to work or to receive care. One of our main objectives has been to become a top ten research trust, with the pharmacy department being an integral part of achieving this.

Closing date for applications Wednesday 31 October.
