Role Overview

An opportunity exists for an experienced Principal Commercial Manager to join our Consulting business at Amey. At Amey we're proud to deliver consulting services across a diverse range of industries, and this role will reflect and cover that range. Focusing predominantly on Rail Design & Consulting you will also be the Commercial lead for Geotechnical, Environmental and Power Utilities projects, with a total approx. value of £65m - £70m per annum.

Reporting to the Account Director you will work closely with the Operational Director across the portfolio complementing their ops knowledge with your commercial expertise. The diverse nature of this role means no two days will be the same, however fundamentally you will be responsible for the following:

  • Maximising Amey's entitlements under each contract
  • Monitoring profits against bid expectations
  • Reviewing, maintaining and agreeing contract documents for both supply chain and clients
  • Administering late payments or disputes
  • Determining the commercial strategy against contracts

You will also have direct line management for one individual at Senior Commercial Manager level, so you should be proactive in developing and mentoring them to reach their full potential.

The geographic spread of these contracts is also wide ranging, as such the base location for this role can be negotiable; the team have an existing presence in our central Birmingham and Swindon offices as well as Derby and York. Fundamentally you should be comfortable travelling as required to any of these on an intermittent basis.

What are we looking for?

This role would suit an experienced Principal Commercial Manager with demonstrable experience of managing a portfolio of works or business stream and managing multiple projects at once. Experience from a rail or civils background would be extremely advantageous, however we can also consider those from other relevant industries including utilities or highways. You should be a proactive individual with excellent communication and relationship building skills, as well as the drive to contribute to the success of others.
