Discussion in 'The Afterlife - Resettlement and Jobs' started by Olive_Jobs, May 19, 2009.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. A Contracts Manager (Defence Communications) is required to support the Commercial Manager by managing and administering all contracts, sub-contracts and legal affairs on a large MoD communications program, based in Newport, South Wales.
    The ideal candidate will have significant commercial experience within the Defence or Communications industries. Responsibilities will include but not limited to; ensuring contracts, sub-contracts and legal arrangements are commercially sound, legal and ethical, identifying any possible risks to the business, drafting, administering and managing contracts and evaluating new offered contracts.
    The successful candidate will also have excellent communication skills as they would be representing the company to external parties such as sub-contractors and Government representatives and assisting in the development of bid strategies. Strong negotiation skills are also imperative in order to agree prices and terms of contracts.

  2. You forgot the bit about being able to double the selling price to the MoD without them noticing. More important than any of the other qualifications.
  3. MNC

    I have dealt with MOD procurement managers for the best part of 30 years and have not met one who couldn't spot a penny price rise at 100 paces. Mind you they were all past masters at trying to increase the scope of the contract without and change in price. The game works both ways, and MOD is just as bad if not worse than industry.
  4. Don't we know it. The Mod are one of the slowest at paying their bills and usually require a reminder. From personal experience.
