WHY THE MINISTRY OF DEFENCE?
The Ministry of Defence and the Armed Forces work together to defend Britain’s interests at home and overseas and to act as a force for good by strengthening international peace and stability. A civilian role with the MOD allows you to make a vital contribution to this effort while enjoying levels of variety and challenge that can’t be found anywhere else.
WHAT IS THE DEFENCE COMMERCIAL FUNCTION?
The Defence Commercial Function handles all the procurement, acquisition and commercial activities of the MOD, under the strategic leadership of the Director General Defence Commercial. This involves everything from servicing submarines to purchasing medical supplies. Working at the DCF can also give you exposure to a huge range of related commercial activities, such as improving supplier relations, dealing with Intellectual Property Rights matters and providing commercial policy guidance. This reflects the fact that the MOD is the UK manufacturing industry’s biggest customer.
