You will lead on developing and implementing new systems and process to fulfil the full end to end procurement cycle for all Prosperity Fund commercial arrangements whilst aligning to the Government Standards. You will be a pivotal point of contact for senior leads and will build strong and positive relationships with other government departments, agencies and the supply base, providing advice, direction and assurance on all commercial issues within the Prosperity Fund portfolio, and driving forward continuous improvement across the department.
