Description:

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has an exciting opportunity for two Commercial Category Managers to join our supportive, inclusive professional team.

The FSA is a relatively small government department, but it carries out a huge amount of important work. In order to deliver our vast remit, we engage with a wide range of partners, spending over £80m each year on external contracts. These contracts enable us to carry out vital research and scientific projects, bring in external support to help our teams across the Agency, and generally ensure that the FSA is always in the best position possible to keep the nation’s food safe.

Our Commercial Category Managers are central to the delivery of the FSA’s Commercial Improvement Projects, supporting development of our Strategies, Plans and Pipelines. The role can be incredibly varied as you lead on complex tender exercises, from early stages through to completion. You will draft contracts, manage negotiations and manage the redaction and publication of contracts.

The FSA is a non-ministerial department of over 1300 people. Having left the EU, we play a critical role in protecting public health and consumers’ wider interests in food across England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Our vision is an important one - to drive change, delivering “food you can trust” and working towards a healthier and more sustainable food system.

Job Description

If you are keen on finding a role that makes a real difference, this could be the position you’re looking for!

If you are proactive in your work, you’ll have the opportunity to make a real difference, seeking out key market information, and analysing vital category management data to ensure the FSA is informed and able to secure the best value throughout its commercial activities.

Whether negotiating contracts, working alongside stakeholders, or offering line-management to a Commercial Adviser, your work will be reliant on excellent communication skills, and your ability to build and maintain strong working relationships.

Flexibility is often key in an environment that has peaks of activity and tight deadlines to work to. If you are excited by the opportunity to help the FSA find real value in its procurement process, and in doing so better serve the public wellbeing, apply today for this fantastic opportunity.
