Job description

We are looking for a Supply Chain Administrator with Accounts Payable experience.

The purpose of this post is to provide an efficient, effective and high-quality service across the Purchase to Pay (P2P) process. Key stakeholders include Staff and Students conducting Procurement and Purchasing activity and the Suppliers that deliver the associated goods, services or works.

Due to the segregation of duty required throughout the P2P process, it is not appropriate for individual post-holders to conduct all activities associated with the role concurrently.

As such, post-holders will hold one of the following specific Responsibility Profiles at any given time, with the ability to rotate at appropriate intervals. As processes develop, these Profiles may be subject to change or realignment.

Please contact  for informal enquiries.

The University of Sussex values the diversity of its staff and students and we welcome applicants from all backgrounds.
