Looking for an opportunity to hone your procurement skills within a forward-thinking setting? 

This Agency leads the way when it comes to making procurement more accessible to both supplier and purchaser. With a huge procurement team guiding the whole of government, it truly is THE place to become an expert in this highly skill-short sector.

We would love to find someone enthusiastic and energetic about learning all there is to know about government procurement. And in return, a very bright future awaits!

With an exceptional approach to customer service, your role will be to contribute to a large team responsible for the provision of procurement expertise and assisting stakeholders to plan, develop, source and manage procurement arrangements. You will be guiding, mentoring and walking your internal customers through the process, ensuring they understand how to comply with the procurement rules to achieve their desired outcome.

As an APS 5 officer you will be able to work independently, as well as under direction, taking the lead in solving problems and going above and beyond to deliver exceptional service. 

Personally, you are enthusiastic and willing to learn. While prior procurement experience is always advantageous, it alone won't get you over the line. Your approach and team fit will be the key to your success in this role.  Instead you might bring external experience as a supplier, with your exceptional customer services skills giving you an advantage.

If you are keen and want to be considered then please apply now! This will be a labour hire contract only (no non-ongoing or transfers at level) paid an hourly rate in line the the EBA, with casual loading and super. It is a 6 month contract with a 6 month extension, and while you don't need a clearance to join, you will need to obtain one so only Australian Citizens are eligible. A current police check is a must.
