  • Assisting the Major Projects & Strategic Commercial Management Lead in strategic cross Group boards and in developing the business partner model and commercial plans.
  • Ensuring the team is a centre of excellence for all OJEU, commercial activity and contract management through delivery of best practice.

You'll already have broad procurement and commercial experience and experience of working within a business partner supporting type role. You'll be able to demonstrate your ability of delivering major procurement projects and of managing a departmental commercial programme. You must be able to travel to London on a weekly basis.

We're seeking applicants with excellent communication skills, composure and the ability to negotiate.
