Initially, your main responsibilities will include drafting and negotiating a wide range of commercial contracts and public sector agreements and liaising with Senior Officers and County Councillors as appropriate.  Procurement experience is desirable but not essential.  Over time, and with supervision, your main responsibilities will broaden to including advising on public procurement law and providing support and management throughout various procurement processes.
