Job Description

Job Description

We work in developing countries to support poverty alleviation, good governance, and to help increase access to basic services. We build capacity and resilience in healthcare, education, water, sanitation and provide world beating expertise in transportation, infrastructure and renewable energy – while safeguarding the environment, promoting human rights and gender equity, and fostering social and economic development.

We constantly stretch our thinking to seek out innovative, sustainable solutions for the world’s toughest challenges: population growth, urbanisation, food security, climate change and local/regional conflicts. At the start of every project, we search for the opportunity to add value in our designs and outcomes. Our multidisciplinary teams of experts work in close collaboration with governments, NGOs and communities in two broad areas: strategic thinking and actual delivery of projects and programmes. We believe our solutions provide the best life chances for the present and future generations because we never lose sight of the people who should ultimately benefit from what we do.

Our International Development Services (IDS) Unit employs about 700 professional and support staff and delivers projects and programmes in over 40 countries, mainly in Africa and Asia. We work for a diverse range of clients including national governments, bilateral donor agencies (eg FCDO, NLAid, USAID, MCC), development banks (eg World Bank, Asian Development Bank), UN agencies (eg UNICEF) and others and works across education, health, water, infrastructure and trade, climate and environment and inclusive growth.

We are now seeking for a Commercial Manager to join our commercial team in the IDS Unit. The key focus of the commercial team is to embed consistent approaches for minimising the Unit’s exposure to financial, commercial, reputational, and operational risk whilst maximising scope, consistency, and effectiveness in winning and delivering profitable business.
