Procurement Officer

Fixed Term Contract until End of October 2021– Maternity Cover

Manchester City Centre

Starting salary for this position is £25,272 per annum (plus contributory pension)

We are seeking an experienced Procurement Officer to join our HQ Procurement team, which provides procurement services to MAG’s programmes based in over 25 countries across the world. This is an exciting and dynamic role, where your skills and experience will help us make a real difference, supporting our lifesaving work across the globe!

Based in the United Kingdom, and working with the Global Procurement Manager, you will provide high quality and cost effective procurement services to MAG’s overseas programmes and HQ in accordance with MAG’s policies and procedures. In addition, you will support the Procurement Team on the digitalisation of procurement and logistics processes as well as data management. Developing strong supplier relationships and effective communication will be key to succeeding in this role.


This is a fast-paced role, which will require high levels of initiative, pro-activeness and strong multi-tasking skills. You will have experience of sourcing and procuring a large and varied range of commodities and services, administering procurement procedures and systems, supporting tender processes and framework agreements, as well as familiarity with international freight and transport dynamics. Above all, you will need to be approachable, flexible, have a good eye for detail and be ready to work in a busy and varied role.

Previous international NGO experience is desirable but not essential.

The place of work will normally be our headquarters in Manchester. In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, and to ensure the health and wellbeing of everyone who works for MAG and their families we have put in place a new working arrangement – remote working from home - to reflect what is a rapidly changing situation. Therefore, you will initially be home based until we are able to return to working in our headquarters.

Please note that as part of MAG's commitment to safeguarding, this post is subject to background checks before an offer of employment is confirmed.

MAG is committed to the principles of diversity, equality and inclusion. If you think you would be suited to one of our roles we would welcome your application regardless of your background. We strive to provide an inclusive and supportive working environment where all employees feel respected and supported in fulfilling their potential.
