Are you a terrific negotiator with a flair for influencing? Can you use your IT expertise to construct the best possible commercial deals? Do you love having a hands-on role and being involved in the full procurement lifecycle? If yes, then we may have the role for you!

 

Our Procurement team lead the sourcing of Metro Bank’s major new capabilities and strategic contracts. You will lead on game changing procurement projects for the Bank - displaying the flexibility, intellect and commercial ability to specialise in procuring for one of the Bank’s fastest growing areas, IT. You will also work closely with the Director of Procurement & Supplier Risk to develop the team’s capabilities as we continue to grow.

 

So what would you be doing?...

 

• Procuring with a specific IT and technology focus 

• Working with the business to shape requirements and engage best of breed suppliers

• Negotiating complex commercial deals and developing innovative financial deals where appropriate

• Running flexible commercial processes in a bimodal world – recognising that a one size fits all approach isn’t always the best way to get results 

• Leading commercial assessments and contracting of deals

• Influencing across the Bank up to and including the leadership team

• Working closely with the Supplier Risk team

 

And... we are a bank so risk is a part of everything we do. We love people who take responsibility, do the right thing for customers, colleagues and Metro Bank and have the courage to call out any concerns.

 

You need to be this kind of person…

 

• Passionate about providing unparalleled levels of service and convenience for customers

• Able to work and learn quickly in a fast paced, fun and dynamic environment

• Prepared to stick at something – we wonder what might be the issue if someone has jumped from job to job as we want people who are prepared to learn and grow 

• Care about doing a great job and exceeding expectations with the quality of what you do

 

And... we are a bank so risk is a part of everything we do. We love people who take responsibility, do the right thing for customers, colleagues and Metro Bank and have the courage to call out any concerns.

 

We always support colleagues to develop their skills. But to be successful in this job you really do need to already be able to do most of these wonderful things...

 

• Understand the risks associated with your job and what that means for you, Metro Bank and all our stakeholders

• In order to exceed in this role, you need to have experience procuring within the IT / technology space, with fantastic IT vendor expertise

• Naturally you will have experience of full life-cycle procurement - through requirements definition, RFP, commercial and legal negotiation to finalised contract

• In order to really exceed in this role you will be used to managing complex projects 

• It would be great if you are currently working for a consultancy, or in Financial Services and used to banking processes, systems, technology and operations 

• You will have strong influencing and leadership skills, with the gravitas to negotiate credibly with suppliers and engage with executive management colleagues at Metro Bank

• Be results driven with a track record of achievement, while adaptable in the face of adversity
