This established FTSE 100 brand boasts a quickly growing employee population and an escalating global expenditure. This has triggered an influx of top-down investment to increase the performance of commercial support functions to aid further expansion as the business approaches its centenary.

As part of this company-wide transformation, the business is searching for a Construction expert to partner with the CPO to devise strategy to instigate best-practice commercial behaviour across the Group.
