As a Barclays Senior Vendor Service Manager, you will lead and oversee the controls of the Intergroup Agreement, assisting the Barclays Risk Management function. In this role, you will build and help with the governance and control oversight for the wider Vendor management team. This is an opportunity to also own the implementation and maintenance of the control and governance framework, as well as adhere to the governance document reviews and lead and manage the process for updating these with senior stakeholders.

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.

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.
