  • 5 years + procurement experience preferably at a strategic level
  • A sound knowledge of government procurement and associated practice AND / OR a background working within procurement in the insurance sector
  • A strong “go to market” ability with robust testing and analytical acumen
  • Confident in developing strategies in line with the associated market and business futures
