Who are we?

Cambridge Assessment helps create a brighter future for millions of learners across the globe - through world class qualifications and education programmes that give people the confidence to fulfil their potential. It's critical work and worthy of the best Procurement Team. As one of our P2P Administrators, you will be determined, focused and curious.

What will you be doing?

This role will see you carrying out tasks to support and deliver day to day commercial activities associated with the products and services required by the Group. Although every day will be different, the kinds of activities you will regularly be doing include:
  • Administering Purchase Order processing for all Group expenditure
  • Ensuring adherence to agreed policies and procedures
  • Carrying out the investigation and completion of procurement related queries
  • Liaising with internal customers and suppliers to ensure purchases are carried out effectively and meet best practice

What type of person are we looking for?

It's essential that you have experience in an office environment and general administrative roles. Experience of procurement and supply would be beneficial. Knowledge of SAP SRM would also be desirable. Attention to detail, organisation and prioritisation skills are vital, together with a sound knowledge of Microsoft Office applications.

You'll be a self-starter who is flexible and feels comfortable communicating with suppliers and internal customers at all levels both face to face and over the phone.

Where are we based?

Only a short walk from Cambridge Train Station, our new contemporary office The Triangle has brought everyone together. Outdoor spaces for relaxation and work include a number of courtyard gardens and facilities, plus employee centric facilities such as a Wellbeing Centre and a Rowing Room, through to a pizza oven and a large subsidised restaurant with food freshly cooked on site by our own staff.

What is our culture like?

We actively support diversity and inclusion and recognise the importance of creating a culture where everyone feels valued for the contribution they make. However, we also recognise that there is still work to do. That's why inclusion, combined with well-being, is a vital part of our engagement strategy.

We are a friendly and supportive team, who take the needs of the business very importantly, whilst not taking ourselves too seriously. We recognise that it's ok to make mistakes as long as you learn to grow from them, and we are there to support each other. We'd say we are open, collaborative and professional, and are looking for someone who can bring their experiences and help us deliver our future.
