Careers at ESPO

If you’re looking for an exciting and challenging opportunity to work within the public sector for an organisation with a commercial edge then ESPO is the place for you. Our staff drive job satisfaction from the prospect of knowing that our products and services are supporting people across our communities; whether it’s the school children using our exercise books, the cleaning services in our hospitals or the energy lighting our streets – the work we do really does make a difference.

We pride ourselves on establishing billion pound procurement solutions, saving millions of pounds for the public sector in the process. While ESPO may be a procurement organisation at heart, this activity is supported by a wide range of roles across many different disciplines including:

  • Customer services
  • Finance
  • IT
  • Procurement
  • Product management
  • Sales and marketing
  • Warehouse and distribution
