An opportunity has arisen for a Business Administration Support role within the Scottish Prison Service’s well-established Procurement Policy and Services Department (PPSD). The intention is that the role holder would participate in a SVQ Level 3 Business Administration Apprenticeship whilst also undertaking study for the entry level Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply (CIPS) qualification. The post is based at SPS Headquarters in Edinburgh. The role will be offered as two year fixed term appointment with a view to permanency.
This role is a very good opportunity for a suitable candidate to attain excellent administrative experience, whilst gaining a general understanding of the nature and operation of the procurement function within a large Government agency with a key role to play in Scottish life. The main day-today focus will be to provide Administrative support and assistance to the PPSD team but the candidate will also be offered the opportunity to develop key procurement skills.
