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.

The Head of Commercial Procurement is a key senior management role that will support the Director of Commercial Procurement Services to assist with the implementation of the BHRUT vision and strategy for Commercial Procurement, as approved by the BHRUT Trust Board.

This role will drive BHRUT to deliver a Best in Class Commercial Procurement Service for BHRUT and Integrated Collaboration across North East London (NEL). To achieve this, Non-Clinical Commercial Procurement roles will be central to managing and maintaining relationships with internal and external stakeholders.

Additionally, this role will be instrumental in designing their own team structure to develop a commercial function that maximises operational performance, whilst minimising risk and reducing costs, in order to improve the overall financial and operational performance of BHRUT and the wider NEL system, supporting and leading key operational and strategic initiatives across the Trust and NEL.

The Non-Clinical Head of Commercial Procurement role will report directly to the Director of Commercial Procurement Services, providing subject matter expert advice, reports, information and data that support the direction and strategic vision of BHRUT and NEL.
