Contracts and Strategy Manager

If you’re looking for your next role in Contract & Strategy Management with a leading London borough, we’ve got the perfect opportunity for you.

Royal Greenwich is a vibrant and diverse borough, with a commitment to providing high quality services to our communities.  The Directorate of Communities & Environment prides itself on the service it provides to the residents of Royal Greenwich.  We’re looking to recruit someone with commitment and drive, who will work hard to help us maintain our reputation for excellent Waste, Street Cleansing and Enviro-crime Enforcement services. 

This is a great chance for someone with waste management experience to take on an exciting challenge and help the borough combat climate change and get the best results for our residents.


You will take a leading role in the procurement of new contracts and the management and monitoring of existing contractual arrangements covering waste collection, waste disposal, street cleansing and enviro-crime enforcement.

You will also be taking a leading role in assisting the Council to progress in line with national and regional environmental strategies, and to achieve its strategic environmental ambitions. As the Council seeks to take action on the climate emergency during a period of a tightening public purse, you will be at the forefront of changing how the Council delivers its services and ensuring it gets full value for money from all of its contractors.


You will need to have significant knowledge in waste management legislation and experience in a strategic role which has involved the monitoring and management of highly detailed contracts. You will need to demonstrate that you understand any potential disputes or other issues and have a proven track record in achieving positive outcomes.

Excellent data interrogation skills, via the use of Microsoft Office products, are essential. Disposal contracts involve a lot of complex data and the candidate must have the ability to manipulate this data as required. Your duties will also include interpreting contract data to assist in financial projections and operational efficiencies.

The ideal candidate will have a flexible approach to work and great attention to detail.


In return for your vital work in our Communities & Environment team, we offer a wide range of benefits including:

  • Commitment to provide development opportunities to staff
  • Agile working
  • 28 days annual leave, rising to 31 days annual leave after 5 years’ service.
  • Excellent pension scheme
  • Learning and development opportunities to maximise your potential
  • Annual season ticket loan
  • Cycle to Work Scheme
  • Childcare Schemes
  • Staff Networks


Whilst requirements for office attendance are likely to increase in the future, we are happy to discuss long-term flexible working arrangements with prospective candidates.

If you have the motivation and skill set for this varied and challenging role, we’d love to hear from you.


We wish to make the application process as straightforward as possible, so we just ask that you complete an online application form to provide further information and attach your CV. For more information or further discussion about the role, please contact Chris Macdonald, on 07743016222 or email

Closing date 24th January 2021
