Procurement Manager - Palmerston North City Council

Reference Number: 206630aa

Location: Palmerston North

Palmerston North is a vibrant, progressive and ambitious city. The city is experiencing growth in all sectors and competes with other regional centres amidst technological and demographic change for capital, talent and visitors.

In this context Palmerston North City Council (PNCC) provides services to 90,000 residents, employing 600 staff across a broad range of functions. PNCC is leading a bold new vision for Palmerston North: small city benefits, big city ambition that will help the metro achieve its potential, capitalise on its strengths, and thrive in the future. To support its transformation, PNCC is currently seeking expressions of interest for a Procurement Manager.

Reporting to the Chief Financial Officer, the Procurement Manager will develop and implement an effective procurement strategy framework for the goods and services procured by Council. As an SME in procurement disciplines, this role is accountable for promoting technical excellence through procurement best practice and ensuring a tailored, fit-for-purpose approach in this area. In addition to acting in an advisory capacity, this role will also carry out management and operational activities as the key advisor for all procurement related matters for Council.

Preferred candidates for the role will bring a depth of experience in both developing and implementing complex procurement strategies of a relevant scale. Also, important (given the Council-wide remit of the role) will be the ability to influence, build credibility quickly, and establish functional networks across a broad range of internal stakeholders. For those seeking a fantastic opportunity in a vibrant regional centre, this role is a compelling next step.
