Requirement: Ofwat requires 1 member of interim staff; administrative support with project management capability. Designing and developing the tender will require a large amount of staff engagement, involving many meetings and several projects running in parallel; all which will need to be carefully managed.

Tasks: The role will support the design and development of the tender exercise for the £8m Ofwat Consultancy Framework and tasks will include the following:

Booking and managing meetings (workstream team meetings, planning meetings)

  • Liaising with teams to establish requirements
  • Booking rooms and arranging video conference details
  • Sending out invites
  • Note taking / action points, if required
  • Managing changes to bookings.
  • Assisting with management of the tender Sharepoint site (creating new folders, sharing file access etc.)
  • Further ad hoc tasks

Role core requirements: In order to carry out this role, you will need to have:

  • Administrative experience.
  • An understanding of good project management theory and techniques.
  • A basic understanding of procurement in the Public Sector.
  • Experience of working on a fast-paced, complex programme of work involving over 50 members of staff;
  • The ability to quickly familiarise yourself with Ofwat's processes and systems;
  • The ability to work autonomously to solve challenges, only escalating when necessary;
  • A working knowledge of Sharepoint, including the ability to set up folders and potentially to manage access permissions; and
  • The ability to integrate with, and act as an advocate for, Ofwat's approach to procurement

Other Requirements: The following requirements are not vital to the role but would be very useful, although definitely not essential:

  • Understanding of procurement in the public sector
  • Experience of working at Ofwat or similar organisations within the Civil Service
  • A desire to 'branch out' into a career in project management and/or procurement.
