"A Rare Opportunity for a Software Licensing Procurement Specialist to Deliver Massive Savings on IT Procurement"
£650 per day (inside IR35) - 6-month contract
Milton Keynes or Leicester (Hybrid Working)
Are you a master negotiator? An experienced and talented IT Procurement Specialist with a proven track record of reviewing, negotiating and renewing software licensing and technical support contracts, mid-way through or at the end of the contractual term?
Are you ready to take on the challenge of delving into our client's operational software licensing and support contracts, reviewing and negotiating them to better serve the needs of their business?
If yes, then this opportunity is tailor-made for you.
Their ideal candidate will possess strong relationship management skills, working knowledge of IT software procurement, and a no-nonsense but cleverly engaging approach towards procurement. The role is not that of a procurement strategist or contract drafter. Instead, it's for an experienced negotiator who can promptly elevate business changes, cut away dealbreakers, and reduce costs significantly within six months.
You will play a vital role in partnering with stakeholders in operations and IT to understand the functionality and service levels required for the evolving business. You will also be expected to explore the unchartered territories of their existing software and support licenses and evaluate whether they are overpaying for functionalities they barely use, or which may have been over specified some years ago and never reviewed.
This opportunity comes with significant buy-in from the senior executive, head of procurement, and IT director. You will work with a team that believes in you and your abilities to save costs and improve operational efficiency. They need someone who can take the initiative and is confident enough to ask the right questions, develop cutting-edge procurement strategies and drive efficiencies for their software licensing and support.
So, if you're a CIPS or MCIPS Qualified IT Procurement specialist with a solid knowledge of software licensing and support and possibly also the eCommerce landscape, we encourage you to apply for this position. If you have a keen interest in technology and IT procurement, this is the perfect opportunity to take your career to the next level, working alongside a dynamic team in a fast-paced and stimulating environment.
This is a six-month contract, sitting within IR35. It can be hybrid, but you will need to attend our client's sites in Milton Keynes or Leicester.
