Thank you for showing an interest in joining the Crown Commercial Service
Crown Commercial Service (CCS) is a Trading Fund and Executive Agency of the Cabinet Office. Our organisation plays a vital role helping the public sector buy common goods and services to deliver maximum value for the taxpayer. We are proud of our contribution to the delivery of effective and efficient frontline services. You can find more details on our website. I would encourage you to start by watching our corporate video here:
At CCS, we use our commercial expertise to help our customers across central government and the wider public sector, from HM Treasury and the Home Office, to schools and hospitals to buy common goods and services worth £13bn in 2017/18, and we’re on track for £15bn in 2018/19. We have a bold aspiration to increase that to £19bn in 2019/20, and to be saving UK taxpayers £2bn by 2020. The wider public sector is the key future market opportunity for growth with an estimated £60-70bn of spend on common goods and services – at the moment, we only reach about 10% of this market. We work across central government, public and third sector (charities and social enterprises) organisations the length and breadth of the United Kingdom to purchase everything from locum doctors and laptops, to police cars and electricity. We are the largest public sector procurement organisation in the United Kingdom, and a key part of the Government Commercial Function
We use the collective purchasing power of our customers, together with our commercial acumen and category expertise, to get the best value deals in the interests of taxpayers.
This is an exciting time for CCS as we transform and put the customer at the heart of what we do. Our Business Development Team in the Customer Experience Directorate will play a crucial role in this. I hope you will be inspired to join us and help us to achieve our ambitions. You won’t find a more exciting or diverse challenge elsewhere.
