Do you love working with industrious people in a fast-paced work environment? Come join us as an Assistant Purchasing Agent at one of the fastest growing cities in the U.S. We serve as a resource to our internal and external customers while simultaneously juggling our own purchasing projects and deadlines. We need a talented, hard working, passionate person working together with us to make this happen because we are a fast-paced work environment with no room for status quo. Since this is not an entry-level role, you'll need strong competencies, education, training and previous purchasing experience to be successful.
The Assistant Purchasing Agent reports to the General Services Manager and is responsible for assisting with purchasing activity in the City while providing purchasing policy direction and coordination to City departments to ensure that all purchases are made in accordance with the City Charter, State and Federal laws and the City's purchasing policy. You will work closely with the City Departments, outside vendors, federal, state & local governments and the general public.
We will mesh your strengths with our talents to develop this position, but there are some traits you must bring to the table:
- An intrinsic need to help others both inside and outside of Purchasing. We believe a project is not just mine or yours; it belongs to all of us. We jump in when needed to help one another.
- A 100% committed, highly motivated and outcome based work ethic. In summary, be here and be engaged.
- A desire to go above the norm.
