Senior Software Procurement Manager for a Global Leading Financial Institution 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
The purpose of your role will be to define and implement a strategic plan for IT software sourcing initiatives in support of defined business objectives and technology procurement strategy.

As expected your role is to focus on delivering YOY value in terms of quality, price, contract negotiation and risk mitigation.

You will look at implementing a strategy to focus on preferred IT software suppliers and focus on consolidation to drive the number of suppliers down in order to create strategic business partners. You will also use various different internal and external sources as well as your knowledge to provide an expert view on investment decisions.

You will lead and focus on commercial/contractual negotiation as well as drive strategic IT/software sourcing projects, focusing on negotiations and working with stakeholders to close negotiations with contracts as well as looking to fully protect the organisations commercial interests.

What you'll need to succeed
You will need to be educated to degree level and the CIPS qualification would be highly desirable. As you would expect, you will need to be a strong negotiator with end-to-end procurement experience. Experience with IT is essential to enable you to bring your knowledge to the procurement function to utilise during sourcing and negotiations.

This is a role where you have influence over processes and procedures so coming from a BAU environment would most likely not be suitable unless you can demonstrate the ability to innovate and challenge ways of working.

Throughout your role you will need to be able to demonstrate analytical, problem solving and project management skills as well as the ability to communicate with various stakeholders at all levels.

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.
