Job Description

** This is NOT an IT role. This is a Sourcing and Procurement role and only candidates with that background will be considered**

Our client is searching a Senior Director of IT Sourcing that would align with the firm's Technology Infrastructure Team to support Software and Hardware technologies. This role will have heavy impact and high visibility to essential, business-critical processes, and will be responsible for supporting Senior Leaders, Directors, and Vice Presidents within the organization to drive cost-out, mitigate risk and complete key sourcing projects.

The Senior Director of IT Sourcing will partner extensively with stakeholders such as corporate IT support, corporate IT infrastructure, Financial systems teams, HR systems teams, and Data Warehousing teams. You will leverage your educational and applied work experience to help drive cost-out of the organization, improve processes (both efficiency and customer experience), as well as identify investment and prioritization opportunities within these business units.

Other Key Functions:

  • Responsible to partner with various business owners across the organization, to define requirements for our purchasing needs, and to establish sourcing and negotiation strategies for the various spend categories.
  • Negotiate all aspects of the relationship including total cost of ownership, payment terms, termination, and maintenance/support.
  • Provide ongoing customer support to external and internal customers, and act as a liaison, resolving any issues that may arise with a contract or supplier.

The spend categories include:

  • Databases, software licenses, and some other 3rd party resellers, and contractors.

The Successful Applicant

The Senior Director of IT Sourcing should possess strong negotiation and influencing skills, analytical skills, the ability to work independently in a fast-paced and rapidly changing environment, a work ethic based on a strong desire to exceed expectations, and strong interpersonal skills including written and oral communication.

What's on Offer

  • Downtown Boston, MA location
  • Work within a growing organization that is nationally recognized
  • Be part of a transformation team
