Senior Commercial Policy Manager
£35,497 - £39,114
Darlington & Sheffield

At the Department for Education, we’re responsible for providing children and young people with the lifelong learning they deserve. It’s a passion that’s fuelling positive change as we aim to build a world-class commercial directorate and enhance our workforce with fresh talent. With a commercial category spend of £6.4bn, we’re working on complex, high-value contracts that will create tangible results for schools, colleges and universities across the country. Perhaps you’ll have the skills and ambition we need to join us.

This is your chance to lead and refresh our Commercial Division. As part of our four-year transformation programme, you’ll develop the department’s policies, supporting tools, and templates. Working with senior business leaders and delivery teams across the division, you’ll ensure that colleagues know about public procurement regulations, government policies, departmental commercial policy and, of course, effective practice. You’ll play a key role helping the department deliver on its priorities, securing quality in procurement and value for money in everything we do.

With experience in either commercial policy, assurance or in a commercial delivery role, you’ll use your expertise to lead changes in our division’s policies. And with your detailed knowledge of procurement laws and processes, you’ll provide practical advice to commercial programmes and projects. Additionally, an MCIPS qualification is desirable, or you’ll be willing to work towards it.
