I am delighted to be exclusively partnering with a public sector organisation in Leicestershire who are looking for an Interim Category Manager (IT) on an outside IR35 basis.

This role will be joining an organisation during a period of change but will be a hands on role providing support to their main digital projects, working alongside an existing permanent Category Manager providing capacity support to the wider contracts and tendering team.

You will be joining a busy, challenging function and so in order to be successful you need to be an experienced and assured procurement professional who is proactive, able to engage and challenge senior stakeholders as well as being happy to stretch vertically and be hands on.

If you are looking for a strategic role, where you will be delegating to a team and working in more of a hands off capacity this is not the role for you.

- Hybrid working - 2 days on site (Office based Leicestershire) with the rest from home - flexibility to come in more if this is wanted

- Multiple years' experience within IT and Digital projects, with specific subject knowledge above just working with frameworks for these projects
- Immediately available/ able to start a new role within 4 or less weeks' notice

- Experience within a commercial organisation in addition to the above would prove desirable but is not essential
