Strategic Sourcing Specialist job with a Global Fintech Company based in Central London

Your new company
You will join one of the most widely recognised Financial Services companies in the world! In a well-connected part of London city, you will be part of a forward thinking, dynamic company whose best asset is their employees. The organisation employ around 15,000 talented employees globally. They specialise in Finance Technology that connects over 200 countries with secure and reliable e-payments.

Your new role
As a Strategic Sourcing Specialist within the Corporate & Employee Services function you will support the Strategic Sourcing Lead in searching/appraising suitable sources as well as negotiating contracts, whilst identifying/engaging with key senior stakeholders.

Sub-categories you will look after are, HR, Facilities Management, Marketing, and Corporate Benefits.

You will need a strong attention to detail and market knowledge as you will provide detailed category market analysis and prepare reports for the leadership teams. The scope of your role will not be limited to the UK, you will also act as a key knowledge point in Europe, supporting leadership teams in different territories. Working closely with the Strategic Sourcing lead you will assist in providing procurement advice to designated areas of the business as well as providing expertise for your category, contributing to the wider strategic planning of the Procurement function.

What you'll need to succeed
You will need to be degree level qualified in a business or legal discipline. To be passionate about the work you do, you will need a desire to work in the Fintech world! You will need to be able to show strong commercial acumen as you will need to identify opportunities towards continuous improvement, not only on a European scale, but on a Global scale too.

Needless to say, a key competency within the Procurement world is your negotiation skills and your ability to influence stakeholders. In addition you will need to have worked in a similar industry with experience in indirect sourcing. Strong IT skills are essential and good working knowledge of Ariba or a similar e-procurement system is important. A postgraduate procurement accreditation will favour your application but it is not absolutely essential.

What you'll get in return
In addition to a competitive salary, you will join a dynamic, like-minded team of professionals with the opportunity to gain global exposure in the Fintech world! The company strongly value work-life balance and you will have the autonomy to shape your long-term career. If you have the urge to work overseas, you will be with a global company that can provide this opportunity.
