This is achieved through the delivery of commercial services to our defence clients in areas including procurement and contracting, commercial policy and practice, post-award contract management, commercial learning and development, and commercial compliance and assurance activities. Who we are: We are a motivated and professional commercial team with a wide variety of qualifications and experiences. We welcome people with both public and private sector experience. We value customer-focused people with ideas, the ability to present them persuasively, and the drive and skill to see them adopted.
