Are you looking for a new challenge in procurement? If so, we absolutely want to hear from you.

We are an executive agency of Scottish Government with a uniquely diverse contract portfolio which includes everything from woodland creation and peatland restoration to aerial surveys and roads construction, to name just a few of our needs.

We work with some pretty inspiring people who are passionate about forestry, the environment and its sustainability and as the fight against climate change continues to move up the procurement agenda, we assure you this is already a firm part of our DNA.

Through completion of our new procurement structure we aim to provide a strategic partnering service that supports our colleagues and suppliers in achieving their objectives. Our plans to transform procurement and contract management are ambitious, but exciting and we recognise that getting the right team of people is key to our success. That’s where you come in.

We are looking for people with commercial skills and experience that will support our ambition to deliver change through self-evaluation, data-led decisions and innovative ideas.

Wherever you want to base yourself in Scotland, we want to build and expand on the positive team-working environment we’ve created so far; so are looking for enthusiastic, proactive people with a collaborative approach to work.

Read testimonial from Gemma Stenhouse, who started as a Category Manager earlier this year
“At first I was nervous about starting a new job at the start of the COVID-19 lockdown, but the team have been so supportive. They have been there to answer any questions remotely as though we were in the office, and have really made me feel part of the team. FLS is such an interesting organisation with a vast variety of contracts to procure and manage – it’s been great to get involved, learn about the different commodities and get to know some of the wider team. The period of change in procurement is really exciting – getting to be part of shaping and embedding the new category structure is so interesting and will provide such a good opportunity to form great relationships across the organisation whilst developing best practice strategies to help elevate the business.”
