The SUMS Group (SUMS) is a dynamic and values-focused organisation dedicated to supporting the UK’s Higher Education sector across our three divisions – SUMS Consulting, the Southern Universities Purchasing Consortium (SUPC) and the Procurement Shared Service (PSS).

As a charity and not-for-profit, we are part of the community we serve. Our vision is to be the expert partner of choice for universities, delivering tangible, sustainable impact through high-quality consulting and procurement services. In a recent survey, 95% of SUMS staff felt positive or very positive about working for SUMS. We strive to be a responsible and supportive employer that provides team members with the autonomy and support to bring new ideas to the table for the benefit of our members, clients and our wider communities.

SUMS is an equal opportunities employer and we recognise the value that diverse backgrounds and experiences bring to our work and our organisation. Some identities are still typically under-represented in the workplace and we particularly encourage you to apply if that might be you.
