Typically a day in the life of a Commercial Manager was a busy mix of negotiating and placing contract amendments, staff management and stakeholder engagement
It is what you make it basically, it can be driven and frenetic or it can be relaxed
You will get to work with a huge variety of people, both military and civilian, across all ranks/levels
The hardest part of the job is managing to stay on top of the large amount of mandated training alongside your full-time work
The most enjoyable is the camaraderie amongst teams, especially with the military personnel.
There is plenty of opportunity for advancement/promotion and you can even switch disciplines across Project Management, Commercial, Finance, Logistics Management and many more.
Although there is no official dress code it's a good idea to go to any interview "suited and booted"
Some teams are much more relaxed about office attire but there are still one or two team leaders who frown upon anything less than trousers, shirt & tie, unless it's "casual Friday"!
