The Role

We are more than a support team. We enable the rapid but sustainable growth of Personio and ensure the financial health and legal stability of the organization. If you want to work and learn in an interdisciplinary team of Finance, Legal and Business Intelligence and want to make a difference from day one, the BIFL team is the right place for you.

As a Junior Manager Procurement (m/f/d) you will help to build up our procurement function to ensure the company’s supply with services and products in the most efficient way while enabling growth at the same time. This incorporates negotiation support for business counterparts (e.g. software licenses), implementation of core procurement workflows (e.g. source to pay), automated mapping into our future finance ERP (Workday) as well as implementation of respective reporting and steering items.

Your key responsibilities will include:

  • Collaborate with key internal stakeholders and enhance relationships in order to align business requirements/specifications/expectations and enable company-wide growth
  • Negotiate, administer, and manage major sourcing contracts with strong focus on software licenses to secure advantageous terms
  • Manage given portfolio and execute regular review of current supplier contracts
  • Develop and execute procurement workflows and strategies (e.g. establishment of source to pay process)
  • Track key functional metrics and analyze actual spendings in order to leverage company growth for better terms and improved efficiency
  • Recommend product and process innovations e.g. based on improved technology
  • Implementation of procurement catalogues including software, hardware etc.
  • Help to develop a growth-focused company culture while being efficient on indirect spendings in order to fuel further growth

What you need to succeed

  • You have 1-2 years of relevant working experience as procurement manager (ideally in either SaaS or online B2B/B2C)
  • You want to work in an environment where you can make a difference while being perceived as real partner of the business who mainly enables future company growth from a procurement perspective
  • You have first experiences as negotiator - ideally in the field of software licenses (e.g. cloud contracts, job platforms, workplace solutions) - who also enjoys networking
  • You have proven to establish and improve procurement workflows in a high-paced environment
  • You have a good understanding of sourcing and procurement techniques
  • You have good knowledge of supplier or third party management software
  • You have an independent, analytical, data-driven, well structured and solution-oriented work ethic
  • You can professionally communicate in English (German is a plus) and you are able to break down complex problems (e.g. pricing models and contract terms) into comprehensive pieces
  • You impress with your positive attitude, act as a motivator and convince with your “can do” mentality
  • You have the ability to adapt to changing priorities in a high-paced environment while managing high-volume of activity
  • You have a BSc/MSc degree in business administration, supply chain management, logistics or any related field
