Cedar has exclusively partnered with Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Trust (BHRUT) to support them as they undertake a major transformation of their Procurement Department, moving towards becoming a commercially focussed enabler for both BHRUT and across the North East London (NEL) healthcare landscape.
As part of this transformation process, a new Director of Commercial Procurement Services has been recruited with the mandate to create a new Commercial Procurement Service which will deliver key cash releasing and non-cash releasing quality benefits in support of strategic outcomes for BHRUT and its NEL Partners.
The NEL Partnership with Homerton University Hospitals Foundation Trust, Barts Healthcare, North East London Foundation Trust and East London Foundation Trust, presents an exciting opportunity to work across the North East London region, supporting the development of true collaborative benefits that ultimately benefit our patients through the delivery of excellent patient care outcomes.
The first step towards commercialisation of the BHRUT team and supporting wider NEL outcomes, is to create a new BHRUT senior management team structure that delivers key commercial and operational outcomes across the entire spectrum of supply chain and logistics, operational sourcing, strategic procurement (clinical and non-clinical), Procure-2-Pay (P2P), data analytics, governance and compliance, supplier relationship management and both operational and strategic contract management.

This role will support the Trust towards delivering a Best in Class Commercial Procurement Service for BHRUT and Integrated Collaboration across North East London (NEL).
The role will also involve working as part of a team of Procurement Operations staff to support with all transactional P2P, data analytics, sourcing, catalogue management and operational performance management activities. Additionally, this role will work and support collaboratively in a matrix structure on a project and programme specific basis, as directed by the Head of Procurement Operations. This role will support the Head of Procurement Operations, to maximise operational performance, governance and compliance, whilst minimising risk and reducing costs in order to improve the overall financial and operational performance of BHRUT.
This post holder will provide subject matter expert advice across procurement operations and associated reports, information and data that support the direction of BHRUT and NEL. As part of this role, key deliverables will include supporting key aspects of commercial, strategic and operational planning and delivery, as well as supporting the identification and delivery of cash releasing and non-cash releasing efficiencies to support the Trust's wider Quality Cost Improvement Programme (QCIP) savings agenda.
