  • Strong working knowledge of Technology related commercial structures and contracts, including licensing, cloud, SAAS, support and professional services

  • Demonstrable understanding and knowledge of the Technology supplier marketplace

  • Ability to evaluate, review and challenge business cases and complex commercial proposals 

  • Ability to construct complex tender documentation, contracts, service level agreements and commercial agreements that minimise risk to the company
