Procurement & Contract Specialist
Procurement & Contract Specialist with a Leading Professional Services Firm based in Central London
Your new company
I am working with an international professional services firm based in Central London. They provide accounting, tax, consulting and business advisory services to their clients. They have over 1500 offices in over 150 counties with a revenue of around £450m. In the UK they employ over 4000 people across 17 offices.
Your new role
Reporting to the Procurement Manager, you will support the team in delivering the firm's procurement objectives. Your role will focus on partnering with the firm's stakeholders, and you will be expected to deliver pragmatic/agile procurement solutions that ensures best possible value is received in 3rd party spend.
Your role will involve managing the set-up/migration of the contract database from our external procurement provider back to in-house. This is an exciting opportunity to get involved with something that will add value to your career search going forward.
On a day-to-day basis you will work with budget holders and the Finance team when dealing with contract terminations/renewals. You will focus not only on cost saving but looking at ways to mitigate risk and maximise value with suppliers for the business.
What you'll need to succeed
You will need strong stakeholder engagement skills as you will be frequently communicating with stakeholders at all levels. You will need the ability to develop effective working relationship with stakeholders at all levels in order to brief, influence and deliver projects to a high standard.
End-to-end experience is highly desirable, but you will need to be competent reading/analysing contracts with sound understanding of legal terminology.
What you'll get in return
If successful, you will join a huge organisation that will give you global exposure to an evolving procurement function. Aside for a competitive salary, you will join a dynamic, forward-thinking team that will allow you to grow and develop in a great working environment.
