You’ll take each agreement from launch to expiry (or replacement), working closely with colleagues across the CCS. Agreements could include both single and multi-supplier arrangements, with a spend of up to £900m.

In fact, communication will be critical right across the board, as you’ll be explaining commercial agreements when dealing with senior stakeholders and suppliers. Team leadership responsibilities may also be required and you’ll certainly be working with people CCS-wide.
