Salary
£70,176 - £96,909 + up to 15% performance-related-pay available on accreditation.
Location
Birmingham, Hastings, Leeds, London, Swansea

The core purpose of this role is to join up the commercial strategies for the construction and infrastructure category across the DfT Group.

The post-holder will use their industry and commercial expertise to work in an environment that is unpredictable and ever changing due to issues both within and outside the control of DfT and central Government (Brexit, COVID-19, other players’ demand, etc).

This is further complicated by the market seeking transparency and certainty over future work and the pipeline of activities. This role will be fundamental in building effective relationships with all parties and stakeholders at all levels. The post holder will strive to provide the visibility and clarity which the market needs in a clear and sustainable format, which will ultimately lead to the avoidance of competition for supply chain resources in the construction and infrastructure category across the Group, and will inform decisions taken by Government (IPA and HM Treasury) around what priorities should be attended to smooth the flow of work in this market.
