The opportunity

The Mace Defence business has undergone rapid growth since its inception. Today we advise a range of clients, including governments, front line commands and private sector defence organisations, where we advise on some of the most nationally significant projects.

Our service lines continue to grow as well, offering commercial, procurement, project management and project controls consultancy services, drawing on our cross-sector experience and priding ourselves on being able to bridge between strategy and delivering practical benefits to our clients.

You would be joining Mace at a time of exciting growth and Mace prides itself on giving its employees the opportunity to excel and to grow with the company.

At Mace Defence, our clients entrust our employees with great responsibility on significant programmes across the project lifecycle where you have the platform to make lasting, tangible improvements to clients’ organisations.

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Planning, design, development, testing and implementation of project deliverables that may cover all aspects of commercial management including procurement operations e.g. strategic sourcing, contract management, supplier relationship management, contract closure, policy and training.

  • Engaging and influencing senior stakeholders within the client’s organisation and delivering presentations of outcomes.

  • Acting on behalf of the client in its organisation working on a variety of tasks throughout the contract lifecycle, from pre-sourcing strategy, to contract negotiations and contract management.

  • Operating as part of a cross-functional team, championing the principles of good contract management and advising other functions on commercial matters as required.

  • Providing expert knowledge of the principles of contract management including governance, building and maintaining supplier relationships, contract administration, exit and transition.

  • Providing line management responsibilities for Mace staff to manage their professional development and support the delivery of their own responsibilities.

  • Supporting business development, practice development and methodology development.
