It draws on the authorities’ collective strengths and experience of running construction frameworks to provide an efficient and modern construction procurement vehicle for the benefit of all public authorities in the South of England.

SCF is growing. In the South West region their annual turnover comfortably exceeds £200m per annum and in the 20/21 financial year is likely to exceed £400m. Due to their growth and the increasing demands from our users, this post has been created to support the Framework Operations Manager (South West ), to ensure the continued success of the South West region

In addition, SCF is in the process of setting up a supplementary consultancy framework and investigating the options of creating a housing framework.

Whilst day to day the post holder will focus on the operational delivery of services to their construction framework users in the South West, you will also work collaboratively with the wider framework team across the SCF geography to ensure the framework continues to improve and evolve.
