Make sure the Met has crucial Forensic Services

Forensic Services (FS) can make or break a case – which is why they need to be of the highest standard. As a Contract Manager, you'll advise Forensics Staff on all contract arrangements, handle contracts for outside Forensic analytical services, ensuring that our partners perform at their best and provide value for money. It’s your chance to work with our in-house Forensic experts and create an outstanding service – one that serves London well and brings offenders to justice.

In this highly rewarding role, you’ll manage a number of Forensic Services contracts for various areas of FS. You will be based in the same building as our FS laboratories and work directly with scientists and experts in the field. With their support, you’ll handle all the legalities, service requirements and KPIs that come with FS contracts. You’ll also build relationships with partners, ensuring that issues are quickly solved and services well co-ordinated. With internal and external stakeholders, there’s no doubt it’s demanding work. However, it’s also fascinating – you’ll get a rare insight into the Met’s first-class Forensic Services.

MCIPS-qualified, you’ll have solid experience in contracts, supply management or procurement. So you know how to implement contract management strategies and deliver value for money. You’ll also know all about contract law, the procurement lifecycle and general procurement processes. Ideally, you’ve used these talents to provide commercial supply chain solutions for the Met before. Either way, you’ll have great communication skills and a gift for forging relationships. Good with suppliers and senior managers, you’ll can deal with stakeholders, issues and performance.
