Are you a high-energy and results-focused public procurement leader looking to serve the community by delivering procurement services to the user departments of Virginia’s second largest city? The City of Chesapeake seeks an experienced public procurement professional to serve as the second-in-command in the Procurement Division. The division delivers approximately $200 million worth of procurements to 41 departments annually. The deputy will work closely with the Procurement Administrator/CPO to lead a team of 12 employees in the delivery of procurement services. This is a “hands-on” position calling for a leader cognizant of the opportunities and obstacles associated with internal customer service delivery in a government environment. The ability to build and maintain relationships with teammates and customers is essential. The City will compensate for leadership experience in public procurement. This position is open because the current deputy has been promoted to CPO (effective August 1st) following the retirement of the CPO. After a reorganization and period of rebuilding and change, the department is at full staff. This is an exciting time to join the team!


Requires any combination of education and experience equivalent to a bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university in business administration, public administration, or other closely related field. Certified Professional Public Buyer (CPPB), Certified Public Purchasing Officer (CPPO) or Certified Purchasing Manager (CPM) preferred. Supervisory experience strongly preferred.
