The world is changing – Digital is at the heart of this and in Defence we are working to place the latest technologies in the hands of operational and business users.

Defence Digital Commercial (DDCmrcl) is the core team responsible for delivering outstanding value for Defence across its exploitation of digital and information technologies, through our oversight and management of all third-party IT spend for Defence.

We are responsible for a large portfolio of complex contracts worth £2bn a year, through more than 300 suppliers. We operate across five categories – Networks, Hardware and Services, Military Technology, Software and Hosting and Professional Services – engaging with suppliers of all sizes and specialisms across the technology and Defence landscape aiming to reduce third-party costs and ensure tax-payer value.

Our wide-ranging Strategic Supplier Management programme is building a centre of commercial excellence, with a team of almost 200 people focused on getting the most financially astute outcomes across all our contracts. We are developing a more strategic approach to supplier relationship management and implementing new ways of working that will embed good practice category management.

This is an exceptionally exciting time within DDCmrcl and we are seeking commercial experts in IT categories to share their experience and to influence to help run the business of Defence with greater creativity, collaboration, business rigour and value creation.
