Crown Commercial Service

The Crown Commercial Service (CCS) plays a vital role in helping the public sector buy goods and services to deliver maximum value for the taxpayer.

Using their commercial expertise, CCS helps thousands of public and third sector buyers in the UK to purchase everything from locum doctors and laptops to police cars and electricity. It is the biggest public procurement organisation in the UK and the collective purchasing power of its customers, combined with its first-class procurement knowledge, means it can get the best commercial deals in the interests of taxpayers.

An opportunity exists to appoint a new Non-Executive Director to the Board of CCS. Led by the Non- Executive Chair, Tony Van Kralingen, the CCS Board is responsible for oversight of the organisation, with emphasis on its strategic direction, management control, and corporate governance. Non-Executive Directors make decisions covering the strategy and direction of the organisation, adding value by offering counsel, advice, and challenge.

CCS is seeking an exceptional individual to join their Board as a Non-Executive Director and Chair of the Technology and Digital Transformation Committee to support progression of the organisation’s transformation journey. Providing scrutiny, governance and strategic leadership grounded in board level experience, he/she will bring a successful track record of leadership in demanding, customer- focused environments. To complement their existing Board, CCS are particularly interested in hearing from individuals who bring recent experience in leading large-scale digital transformation in complex organisations.

CCS is committed to diversity throughout the organisation, and welcomes applications from all qualified candidates.

The closing date for applications is 23:59, Sunday 17 May 2020.

CCS has retained Russell Reynolds Associates to advise on this appointment.
