About Procurement Services

The Procurement Service at Westminster City Council is undergoing a radical transformation in 2020:

  • a new Director of Commercial Partnerships post, with responsibility for strategic leadership of over £600m of annual third-party expenditure
  • an expanded, strengthened senior management team with professional leads across all key disciplines
  • a home in the new Finance & Resources directorate, with strong support and sponsorship from the Executive Director for Finance and Resources
  • direct alignment between procurement resource and the Authority’s main departments, which has already radically improved collaboration and customer satisfaction and is positioning procurement as a trusted organisational partner
  • for the first time at Westminster, bringing together procurement activity for all services, including Corporate, Place-based, Adults, Children’s and Public Health
  • sharing several aspects of the service on a bi-borough basis between Westminster City Council and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea – including procurement for Adults, Children’s and Public Health across both authorities 

As part of these ambitious developments, the authority is reshaping and enlarging its team of commercial specialists. We’ll place a link here as soon as the recruitment site goes live.
