David has worked in senior procurement and contract management roles across numerous public sector organisations including within the HE Sector. His experience of OJEU tendering across a wide range of categories – including soft and hard FM, minor works, professional services, transport, temporary staff – has recently been complemented by a post-graduate certificate in procurement law and policy.

This qualification consolidates his experience in introducing procurement and contract management procedures and compliance processes that are current, practical and fit-for-purpose.  These skills are supported by previous experience in supporting private sector sales to the public sector ensuring commercial negotiating skills are interwoven with the application of public contract regulations.
