The Government Procurement Graduate Scheme 2010 is now open for applications at bigprocurement.co.uk
Now in its fourth year, the GPGS is a unique graduate programme that combines a strong commercial focus with the chance to contribute to public service delivery – and people’s everyday lives.
Government procurement is seriously big business. From first aid kits to foreign aid programmes, tilting chairs to tilting trains, the public sector spends over £200bn each year buying goods, services and works from suppliers.
The Office of Government Commerce (OGC) helps deliver value from this spending by applying commercial disciplines and a business-like approach. We go into every deal, every transaction, every negotiation with one thing in mind: getting the best value for the UK taxpayer.
So, our graduate scheme won't just give you a far reaching insight into the commercial world and a CIPS qualification. It will give you the grounding you need for a commercial career in government that's varied, challenging and secure.
The closing date for applications is Friday 26th March
