Senior Software Buyer role for a Leading Financial Services organisation based in Central London

Your new company
You will join one of the world’s largest financial institutions based at their main hub in Central London. They are world leaders in the analytical solutions and their portfolio composes of derivatives, bonds and equities. You will gain exposure with a well-established company within the financial markets in the UK and across the globe! They pride themselves on excellence, expertise, teamwork and knowledge thus meaning their cliental and employee retention is second to none.

Your new role
You will be responsible for negotiating new purchases/renewals for software, managing the Purchase Requisitions/Purchase Order pipeline for software and continuously engage with stakeholders to ensure you have a good understanding of their ongoing requirements.

You will liaise with stakeholders across the business to ensure renewal is required and scale is accurate. Initially you will be dealing with contract values of around £50/£60k, so similar software contract experience would be ideal. After you have gained more experience and demonstrate competence, you will have the opportunity to work on the more complex, higher value contracts.

The software spend is over £100m across an EMEA remit so you will need experience in a large EMEA/Global procurement function. You will be responsible for the end to end procurement; market research, going out to market, RFIs/RFPs/RFQs, contract management etc.

What you'll need to succeed
You will need at least around 2 years’ experience with indirect categories, including IT and specifically software. You will need to be commercially astute and a strong communicator as you will be required to engage with stakeholders across the business. You will need the ability to multi-task and meet deadlines as well as look to maximise opportunities by challenging ways of working and continuously looking to improve processes/procedures.

What you'll get in return
As well as a competitive salary, you will be working in an environment with forward thinking people where you will have the ability to implement new processes/procedures. You will be entitled to a discretionary bonus and a comprehensive benefit package. You will be in a good position to learn new skills and enhance your experience, as the company highly value personal development and career progression.
