Job Details

Evolve Commercial is digital procurement consultancy that provides commercial and procurement services to help our clients successfully deliver their complex and security-sensitive technology programmes. Formed in 2020, we are an exciting, fast-growing, and vibrant company who are looking for experienced professionals to join our growing team in 2023.

We can promise that working at Evolve is refreshingly different to working at your typical large corporation or consultancy. You’ll have the opportunity to play an integral part in the company and will participate in a complete range of important business activities, whilst actually influencing company development from day one.

To thrive in this environment, we only ask that you bring a high degree of pro-activeness, independent aptitude, and flexibility. If change is something that excites you, then Evolve could be the right career move for you.

We are fully digitally native and embrace the freedoms of modern, flexible working arrangements. We understand the challenges of balancing home and work life, so we promote a progressive approach to managing our business, alongside home life, which is based on delivering the outcomes that deliver the best possible value for our clients and our company, as efficiently as possible. This means that effective, valuable, and focused outcomes for our customers, our business, and you is our gold standard, and not ‘presenteeism’.

Evolve is a strong, close-knit team, who shares in great fun and great work. We strongly value the social aspects of working as part of a great team, which can be a challenge with remote working, so we enjoy regular face-to-face team workshops and social events.

We are growing this business together – so  whether this is the kind of fresh venture you’ve always wanted, you’ve come to a point in your career where you need something new and exciting, or if you feel like you want to test your skills in a new environment - then you will never find a better time to join us than right now.

Employee Management Incentive Programme

Evolve Commercial is, ultimately, the sum of its team. And, as such, every member of the team will have the opportunity to own part of the company in return. In 2022 we launched an Employee Management Incentive programme and have ringfenced 20% of the company to put into staff hands. This will enable employees to benefit from additional dividend payments from company profits (on top of bonuses!), as well as share in any benefit from any future business sale. You’d work to benefit Evolve, so why not have it work to benefit you in return?

The Role

As a Senior Consultant you will be expected to have the capability to lead and deliver complex programmes, using your own proven, comprehensive skills and experience, as well as support and guide team-mates. You will also work closely with the directors to play a key and active role in future company development and generating potential business opportunities.

If you don’t understand what it is you’re buying or selling, how can you possibly know what you’re delivering? That’s why we specialise. Yes you can find someone who can deliver, but your organisation can do better. Your organisation deserves better. We’re the people to help you do it.
