East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD) invites qualified persons to apply for an immediate Limited Term (LT) opening (up to 2 years) in the Purchasing Division of EBMUD’s Finance Department.

This incumbent will have a key role in determining the future of how a water/wastewater industry leader, EBMUD, will purchase and pay for nearly $200 million a year in goods and services. Questions to be tackled include how do we deliver goods and services to end users in the most cost efficient way possible working within constrains of public agency regulation? How should new technology play a role in how purchasing is conducted now and into the future? How can we create a system that will be flexible to meet changing requirements? Specifically, this position will be deeply involved with selecting to replace an existing purchasing, inventory, and accounts payable system.

Our ideal candidate will have an understanding and knowledge of directing and controlling the centralized purchasing activities necessary to serve the operations of a large public utility through the purchase, rental and lease of equipment and services in processing specifications and proposals. The ideal candidate will also have working experience on large size IT projects, system replacement or upgrade.

Requires completion of four years of college resulting in graduation or its equivalent and four years of increasingly responsible professional purchasing experience or material control experience which has included direction of a procurement function. Possession of a valid California driver’s license and a satisfactory driving record, as well as the physical characteristics to perform the critical and important duties of the job is required. Must be willing to work overtime as needed.

Submit your EBMUD application online at by Friday, July 14, 2017. Only application materials submitted online during the filing period will be accepted. Application materials faxed, mailed or delivered to EBMUD will not be accepted. Applicants presenting the best combination of job-related qualifications will be reviewed for further consideration.

NOTE: The recruitment for this temporary position will not result in the establishment of a civil service list.
