The role will mainly be about delivering consultancy advice & engagements to our Public & Private sector clients. This could be in the form of:

- Running Early Market Engagement programmes to deliver new/ innovate suppliers & services to the authority

Advice Cloud has some very ambitious growth targets in plan for the next 5 years so this role can and will expand as the team grows. We have invested heavily in our people & technology and will continue to do so hopefully remaining at the cutting edge of procurement excellence in the UK Public Sector.
Whilst our HQ is in sunny Hove on the south coast this will not be an office based role so flexible and remote working is fine by us. However most of our work is delivered within London / South East so the ability to travel / commute to these areas will make life easier. Regular visits to HQ are required. Cultural fit is very important to us so please take a look at our company beliefs to ensure compatibility.
No agencies please.
