As a Barclays Supplier Manager, you will have an exciting chance to join a team accountable for the management of end-to-end sourcing events including RFX, auctions and commercial negotiations with relevant suppliers. You will need to have experience in the non-IT category areas but with a particular emphasis on the HR and/or Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) categories where we have current and planned high demand for our assistance.

Barclays is one of the world's largest and most respected financial institutions, established in 1690, with a legacy of success, quality, and innovation. We offer careers that provide endless opportunity – helping millions of individuals and businesses thrive and creating financial and digital solutions that the world now takes for granted.

At Barclays, we offer a hybrid working experience that blends the positives of working alongside colleagues at our onsite locations, together with working from home. We have a structured approach where colleagues work at an onsite location on fixed, ‘anchor’, days of the week, for a minimum of two days a week or more, as set by the business area (or nearest equivalent if working part-time hours). Please discuss the working pattern requirements for the role you are applying for with the hiring manager. Please note that as we continue to embed our hybrid working environment, we remain in a test and learn phase, which means that working arrangements may be subject to change on reasonable notice to ensure we meet the needs of our business.

Driving the management of end-to-end sourcing events including RFX, auctions, commercial negotiations with relevant suppliers


Leading and managing the end-to-end delivery of deals primarily aligned to sub-category


Ensuring that all relevant sourcing documentation is inputted to the deal management and contract systems to be compliant with business policy requirements


Building and maintaining a solid operational and strategic network with the category management teams to report, measure and improve on deal execution capability


Interacting at senior level both internally and externally showcasing relevant social skills


Providing knowledge and sourcing support to manage commercial negotiations with third parties and liaising with key business users across Barclays

What we’re looking for:

Solid grasp of various commercial value drivers with a good knowledge of best Procurement industry practices


Experience in negotiating supplier contract terms and conditions


Excellent communication skills both written and verbal, able to present to senior management

Skills that will help you in the role:

Additional sourcing experience within another category, e.g. Professional Services, as stated above


Excellent networking and senior stakeholder management skills
