About Our Client

JTL, established since 1990, is the leading work-based learning provider in the building services engineering sector across England and Wales. They are a not-for-profit charity, offering apprenticeships to approximately 8,000 learners and 3,800 employers across England and Wales.

JTL holds contracts with the Education Skills Funding Agency in England and is a subcontractor for Welsh Government funding in Wales. The company supports and delivers a growing choice of professional development training for those already working within the business services industry.

There are significant challenges for the world in which JTL operates. Stretched funding for further education, a skills shortage and an urgency to meet low carbon targets - these all bring a need to adapt and innovate to deliver high quality training for the future. In the face of these challenges, JTL will be at the forefront to ensure the UK has enough safe and qualified electricians and plumbers to deliver the work needed. Their forward-thinking strategy is a result of their culture of continuous improvement and learning with input from our employers, apprentices and other key stakeholders. 

Job Description

Reporting to the Group Head of Finance and working as part of the larger finance team, the post holder will lead on the provision of high quality and timely procurement through partnering with all stakeholders, maintenance of the control environment and continual review of the procurement lifecycle.

The postholder will provide assurance to the Heads of Service on the compliance and performance of contracts and provide contract performance reports to highlight issues and potential clawbacks, credits or penalties in relation to contract delivery by our suppliers. 

The successful candidate will play an integral role in driving the strategy to reduce reliance on subcontractors and reshape contract management through increased use of JTL training centres. This work will involve partnering with multiple business units across the organisation.
