We are working with one of the UK’s most trusted retailers with a fantastic reputation and heritage!

 

There have been some key changes made to the procurement team recently which have put the foundations in place for further developments in the future. The spend across Indirects is £3-4bn per annum and that covers multiple brands.

 

We are looking for 2 x Sourcing Managers within IT –

 

One to work in their Software & Services Technology team. They require someone with experience of negotiating major enterprise agreements with the likes of Microsoft and Oracle, to help manage a technology modernisation programme and manage key projects across the category.

 

You will have a good level of technical knowledge, ideally within software licensing within the IT industry.

 

The other is specifically focused on Hardware & Infrastructure, including data centres and Cloud services. You will be generating and accelerating plans to migrate as much as possible over to Cloud over the coming years in order to reduce the economical footprint. 

 

You will work with two different stakeholder groups and so will be comfortable building and managing these kinds of relationships. Previous experience in migrating and consolidating data centres would be highly beneficial, as would experience in networks and telecoms.

 

The location for these roles can be flexible – London, Midlands and Cheshire and will pay up to £65k + benefits package.

 

They have an enviable culture and it is an excellent team to be a part of; they pride themselves on the flexibility that they offer their employees, with hot desking and home-working both available.
