Become a part of CPC via fresh career opportunities


By Ashley Cox

Ever wanted to work for a charity that makes a positive difference to the education sector? If your values match with ours, CPC could be an ideal destination to advance your career...

In a changing job market, it’s sometimes worth asking yourself what you’re looking for, beyond the usual factors.

Do you crave to work somewhere that respects and reflects your personal values, giving you a platform to make a difference in an important sector, while valuing your integrity and empathy? 

Would you love a role where staff have compassion for their colleagues, with each team member’s unique needs recognised and respected, and multiple sources of support on tap? 

How about somewhere management show trust in their team to get their work done, giving them precious flexibility in a complicated world, by way of both agile and remote working solutions?

CPC is proud to offer all the above and more, and, as a non-for-profit registered charity, your work would not be bolstering shareholders’ coffers, it would be helping schools, academies, colleges and universities across the UK to buy better, make savings and deliver superior education experiences. 

Moreover, our Giving Back charitable initiative ensures that surplus funds are returned to education, helping a host of institutions to buy equipment, put on events and fund worthy programmes.

The vision espoused by CPC is to become the procurement services partner of choice for the education sector and to, through our work, help the sector enhance its teaching and learning. If such an objective appeals to you, why not explore our current career opportunities? 

There are plenty of benefits from being a part of our CPC team, from generous funding in support of a variety of training options to in-house and remote Mental Health First Aid provision. 

We pride ourselves on operating with a collaborative and diverse workforce that benefits from its wide spectrum of life experience, with employees around the UK bringing regional knowledge and our Greater Manchester HQ providing a hub for ideas and innovation.

Whether you’re an established procurement professional or a talent on the rise, CPC could be the catalyst to kickstarting a truly purposeful career switch - our latest available roles can be found here.
