Broaden your horizons

London Borough of
Richmond upon Thames



Dear candidate, 

Thank you for taking the time to look at the range of exciting opportunities in procurement that the London Borough of Richmond has on offer.

This is a challenging time in Local Government, as we go through a period of rapid change. At Richmond, we are looking for people who see that challenge as an opportunity to make their mark whilst delivering real value for our residents.

We are aiming high. We are seeking out innovative approaches to delivering our services, working with providers across the public, private and voluntary sectors, whilst continuing to improve outcomes for residents. Richmond has become a leading Commissioning Council’ which puts our procurement team at the heart of what we do. As a member of that team, you will play a pivotal role in making our vision reality.

We take a proactive response to our financial challenges. We have delivered a comprehensive Transformation and Commissioning Programme. We already share some back office services, and we are looking to establish a Shared Staffing Arrangement with Wandsworth Council, and will be continuing to look at new ways to deliver services. This will give you an opportunity to be part of this forward thinking opportunity.  We have an organisation centred around a commissioning process and have a significant ongoing procurement programme in place.

We need able, committed and focused people to take us forward. We are committed to providing our staff with the support they need to deliver the best for the Borough. We have developed a high performing, commercially focused procurement team, and if you join us, we will work with you to help you enhance your professional knowledge and skills.

Richmond is a great place to work; a beautiful borough, but more importantly, a Council where you can be part of a strong team, which is focused on facing our challenges.

If you’re looking to play a key role making change happen, and if you think you might be the person we are looking for, then we look forward to receiving your application. If you would like to know more about one of our exciting opportunities please contact Linda Todd at Hays Procurement - or 0207 259 8714 who would be delighted to discuss with you.

We look forward to welcoming you to our team, and wish you all good luck with the recruitment and selection process.
