About the role
The procurement coordinator will be responsible for administration of procurements to ensure that a robust audit trail is available for each individual procurement activity. This will involve working with the director of procurement, procurement manager and procurement panel members to carry out the procurement coordinator tasks outlined in the quality management framework.
The procurement coordinator will also take the lead on some lower value procurements.

The procurement coordinator will be required to assist the procurement team members in the continual development of the procurement strategy for Jisc by monitoring and acting upon developments in procurement legislation and good practice and to manage the process within the management framework.
