Global Category Manager, IT Professional Services (maternity cover)

Are you ready to boost your CV with valuable global procurement experience?

In this role, you will get a chance to work with a wide range of stakeholders and vendors as you help our IT professionals buy services for colleagues across the global organization.

Manage global spend on consulting and software services

As a global category manager, you will become the key point of contact for global and regional stakeholders for all professional services spend like consulting, outsourcing, managed services and freelancers. Thus, you are responsible for managing key stakeholder relationships for both new spend and renegotiations.
This entails establishing good working relationships with our vendors, proactively understanding their requirements and formulating feasible sourcing strategies and plans. Moreover, you play an active role in leading negotiations and supplier review activities. Working out of our London or Billund office, you will:

- Lead development and execution of the IT Professional Services category plan

- Negotiate deals with global and regional vendors to support our overall business and commercial objectives

- Manage global suppliers, including scorecard design and reviews at tactical and strategic level

- Drive sourcing plan execution and KPI management (PO compliance, vendor rationalisation and cost savings)

As this is a global role, you can expect some travel, including visits to our headquarters in Billund, Denmark, once every quarter.

Trusted to perform

Joining our IT & Digital Procurement team, you will collaborate with colleagues in Billund as well as London. We enjoy a great working environment with an attractive work/life balance. In the LEGO family, we believe that the more you enjoy what you do - and the more fun you have doing it - the more extraordinary your work will be. You will also experience a lot of professional freedom and autonomy, allowing you to make decisions and thereby influence our procurement strategies.

Global IT sourcing experience

You are ready to use your procurement experience in a global organisation where building strong stakeholder relationships from a distance is a key part of the job. While you do not need deep IT technical insight, you must be able to manage stakeholder demands with confidence, challenge ideas and push back when necessary. Moreover:

- You have a bachelor’s degree or equivalent in business management with a focus on supply chain, legal issues or finance

- As IT solutions are converging, you must have a good understanding of all IT procurement categories with particular focus on IT professional services

- You have experience reviewing spend data and developing action plans for optimisation and process improvement

- You know how to negotiate complex contracts with global and niche services vendors

- You have strong communication skills and the ability to interact effectively with individuals at director/VP levels in fluent English
