Head of Contract and Commercial
As our Head of Contract and Commercial, you will play a vital role in Xoserve’s success. Working with colleagues across the business, you will be responsible for cultivating strong and collaborative commercial relationships with our suppliers (including the main sub-contractor), underpinned by contracted arrangements. A trusted advisor to colleagues across the business on contract and commercial matters, you will ensure that Xoserve’s contract and commercial capabilities are right-sized to meet the demands of the business, lead industry procurements and, where appropriate, engaging with customers and industry bodies.
The successful candidate will be a contract and commercial practitioner with broad experience of business-driven contract and commercial arrangements in the services sector. A self-starter, you will provide thought leadership and hands on practical input to a complex array of commercial and contracting activities. A savvy communicator, you will be able to explain complex concepts as a clear and succinct story, draft and interpret contracts in the context of the business and build and maintain collaborative relationships with colleagues, customers, suppliers and industry representatives. You will use your natural curiosity to see things from a border perspective, to help you identify creative contracting or commercial solutions, in a way which delivers business value while enhancing the relationship.
Reporting into the CEO, you will be part of Xoserve’s Senior Leadership Team, expected to operate at strategic/ leadership level while also being able to work “hands on” in the detail. You will have the energy and drive to deliver outcomes as part of a small team, balanced with pragmatism to adapt to the shifting priorities which are characteristic of a small, customer-focussed organisation. You will also contribute to the shaping and execution of Xoserve’s future, as it responds to the ongoing consultation into energy code reform.
