Head of Business Engagement 

Salary: £64,612 - £69,629 (depending on relevant experience and qualifications)
MI5 and MI6
Location: Central London with some UK travel 
 
Extraordinary Purchases. 
Extraordinary Procurement Roles. 
 
 
MI5 and MI6 help to keep the country safe by investigating and disrupting threats to our national  
security. It’s a complex, dynamic and sensitive commercial environment, where delivering a 
prompt, sustainable and professional procurement service is vital across all of our activities. 
 
The list of items we procure is a little out of the ordinary. But then, would you rather work in a 
team fulfilling the same old repeat orders? Or play a leading role in a setting where the deals are 
incredibly complex and technology pushes the boundaries of what’s possible? Ensuring we have 
everything we need to keep the country safe is an opportunity guaranteed to invigorate your 
career. And fire your imagination. 
 
About the role  
 
As the Head of Business Engagement, you’ll actively contribute to our commercial growth, and 
manage the portfolio of major procurement projects. With responsibility for overseeing a team of 
business partners, you’ll also lead and set the direction of the procurement teams, and build 
relationships with senior stakeholders and external suppliers. This will see you understand our 
future requirements, and agree commercial plans and strategies.  
 
Improvements, innovation and performance from our suppliers will also be up to you, as will 
supporting collaboration across the agency. Additionally, you’ll recruit, develop and mentor the 
team to achieve efficiency through best practice.  
 
About you  
 
To apply, you should be a part or fully qualified MCIPS procurement professional, or be willing 
to complete the training during your first three years. While not essential, a Prince 2 in project 
management, or relevant category management qualification, will be beneficial.  
 
You’ll have a background leading a range of commercial activities and projects within complex 
and demanding commercial environments, supporting senior procurement officials. In fact, 
you’ll have demonstrable experience working on multifaceted and major projects, managing 
significant spend within a best practice procurement function. Vitally, you’ll bring a thorough 
understanding of key supply chains and markets, and a strong knowledge of best practice 
procurement processes and methodologies.
