One important and high profile aspect is in the Supplier Relationship Management arena where we are leading the way across Government.  It’s an exciting place to be with extensive development and training opportunities on offer.

We are recruiting a Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) Manager to join the Commercial and Contracts Management team within MoJ HQ. This key role will sit within SRM and Risk team. This is an exciting opportunity to drive the development, design and implementation of a new area of commercial work in the Department, working closely with commercial, contract and business stakeholders.

This is an exciting opportunity that will give you the chance to work in a Department committed to ground-breaking supplier relationship management practice in Government.

The MoJ delivers some of the Government’s highest priorities through a wide range of commercial contracts.   Our work on the prison and court reform programmes is transforming the way justice is delivered. The contracts, projects and procurements within the Commercial and Contract Management Directorate are diverse from IT, Construction to Offender Management tools.  Working collaboratively with our suppliers to improve delivery of our objectives and increase mutual value beyond that originally contracted is a key part of our approach. 

You will be supporting the development of the Department’s SRM policy and implementation programme, ensuring that relevant stakeholders are involved and on board, the benefits of SRM are promoted and understood and the approach is successfully embedded into the MoJ way of working. 

The SRM Manager is a crucial player in the SRM team and will support the Senior SRM Manager in developing and delivering this innovative programme. We are seeking someone who has previous experience of SRM and working in a contract/ supplier management environment, and who can deliver results quickly working as part of a small team.  You will be able to deliver and manage change and turn principles into practical, workable tools and guidance, demonstrating an enquiring and analytical approach.
