Sector Lead – Local and Central Government

Atkins has an enviable track record of delivering significant and impactful projects across both Central and Local Government clients. Working with the full range of Governmental organisations we are helping these clients lead the way when it comes to incorporating important issues such as de-carbonisation, net zero, economic & social growth and health & wellbeing across a wide variety of projects.

We are looking to make an appointment of a Sector Lead to focus on building sustainable growth across our Central and Local Government portfolio of clients. The role could potentially be based from any Atkins UK office.

As Sector Lead you will drive our client engagement strategy across the UK, maximising potential from our people and new technologies to deliver greater value to clients. A key part of the role is building and sustaining long term relationships to yield significant benefits to both clients and Atkins, by anticipating future requirements and developing compelling value propositions through internal capability and external collaboration.

We know that different people have different priorities, which is why we're here to support you. Flexible and remote working is a central part of our culture. So talk to us about what's ideal for you – from reduced weeks to buying more leave over school holidays.

  • Be an ambassador for the business; represent Atkins at the highest level, attending and speaking at relevant events, developing alliances and partnerships and generally leveraging opportunities to build greater profile and awareness of Atkins.

  • Lead on major pursuits where required.

Requirements 

  • Commercial potential / transferring ideas to the bottom line / Demonstrable track record of delivering profitable revenue growth in Central and Local Government.

  • Deep understanding of public sector client needs and drivers. 

  • Able to demonstrate experience of developing strategic relationships and finding ways to add significant value to the client’s agenda.

  • A pro-active decision maker with a confident yet diplomatic operating style - someone who deals easily with cultural diversity.

  • Able to access and influence at senior level. Builds lasting and durable strategic partnerships with the client.

  • Curiosity to seek out and understand implications of industry change and opportunities this presents for Atkins to deliver new value propositions to our clients.

  • Able to lead/support the development of competitive tenders including understanding of the commercial position of the market
