Further Information

Beyond Housing was formed in October 2018 following the merger of Coast & Country Housing and Yorkshire Coast Homes into one organisation. With its main offices in Redcar and Scarborough, Beyond Housing is a registered housing provider responsible for the letting, management and maintenance of over 15,000 homes across the North East and North Yorkshire.

Beyond Housing is committed to going beyond the bricks and mortar to help its communities and region thrive. By providing quality homes people want to live in, alongside valuable additional services delivered by passionate people who want to help, Beyond Housing contributes to the prosperity, wider regeneration and sustainability of its communities, creating neighbourhoods that will flourish well into the future.

An excellent opportunity has arisen for a Procurement Lead to join our Procurement team. With the recent merger, we have been through a re-structure in order to deliver an improved service to the Beyond Housing organisation and you would be joining us at the beginning of this exciting journey.

This role will have a unique opportunity to create and influence change in order to deliver a professional, compliant, customer focused procurement service.

Some parts of our new organisation have not worked with Procurement previously and therefore, a passion and enthusiasm for Procurement and all that we represent is a must!

Responsibilities will include developing and implementing multi-site sourcing strategies for high spend and high risk areas. Management of key suppliers to drive performance and ensure that social value and value for money principles are embedded throughout the tendering and contract process. Promoting procurement best practice throughout the organisation will be a key activity and therefore, strong stakeholder engagement and relationship building is essential.

We are looking for a self-motivated individual who tackles challenges with a pragmatic and enthusiastic approach, with a strong background in strategic and operational procurement ideally including public contracts procurement. The ideal candidate will have experience of managing a diverse portfolio of spend, challenging the status quo and offering suitable and improved alternative opportunities.
