Join us and become Contract Manager in IT Procurement where you’ll be responsible for managing and optimising our IT contract and vendor portfolio, while supporting and participating in the implementation of structured contract and vendor management in our IT department.

Your key tasks will be to

  • build relationships with key stakeholders to support the realisation and optimisation of commercial value from the contract portfolio
  • develop and execute on vendor plans with IT managers and business stakeholders to support the realisation of enterprise objectives and develop vendor relationships
  • proactively suggest improvements to processes, procedures, workflows and organisational structures related to contract and vendor management.

The ideal Contract Manager will have significant influence on the prioritisation of actions within the area and the strategic and tactical development of the contract management function.

Your competences include that you

  • have a cross-disciplinary background based on a bachelor’s or master’s degree in economics, law or engineering, with a broad as well as in-depth understanding of corporate IT

Furthermore, some of your characteristics include that you have a structured approach to your work, in order to create overview of and ensure ongoing follow-up on contracts, you take pride in a proactive and value-creating relationship with your stakeholders, and you take ownership of your tasks. Additionally, we value colleagues who have a positive mindset, are team players and are driven troubleshooters.

Your experience and knowledge may have been gained from a comparable large organisation, from a corresponding position on the supplier or buyer side or from a role as consultant, but our preferred candidate is someone who is willing and eager to learn.
