How you’ll change it up

Joining our Network Build division as a Commercial Manager, you’ll lead our commercial and contracts team on the management of contractual changes, as well as driving the standardisation of best practise approaches across our portfolio of contracts. Day to day, this is some of what you can expect to be doing:

  • Acting as the lead interface for any initiatives where Build related contracting or commercial management might be impacted

  • Experience managing key stakeholders across all business functions, collaborating effectively across different teams
  • Experience in dispute resolution and negotiation
  • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills, with the ability to work with large and complex data sets
  • Familiarity with change management processes and practises

We’re looking for people who don’t settle for ‘good enough’ and push things forward. If you’ve just found yourself thinking, ‘I’d love to do this’, we want to hear from you. Let’s change it up.
