From a Procurement perspective ING Netherlands has interests in a full and wide range of activities - everything related to IT, Marketing & Communications and Professional Services. All ING NL’s purchasing interests in these fields are safeguarded by ING Procurement Bank Netherlands. The exposure as well as the impact of this role is beyond the boundaries of Procurement. To be successful, you must have a strong passion for procurement and for setting high standards for yourself as well as for the people around you.

For this particular role, the ideal candidate will have gained procurement experience in sourcing Technology, preferably with some exposure to Infrastructure Software, SaaS and Applications.

Your tasks include but are not limited to:

  • Collaborating with key business partners in our Wholesale Banking Technology team at all levels; acting as a trusted advisor to gain a clear understanding of the strategic direction and priorities, whilst working to ensure buy in to the ING Procurement Policy
  • Increase efficiency by driving scale where it makes sense, decreasing fragmentation, pooling expertise of business and other Procurement colleagues, prioritising higher impact spend areas and minimising contractual risk
  • Autonomously owning multi-million Euro procurement and strategic projects from cradle-to-grave, from gathering stakeholder requirements through to RFP, contract negotiation and award and any required following supplier relationship management requirements
  • You’re able to convert complex information from contracts or proposals into digestible content for stakeholders

This involves counterparty financial strength analysis, intelligence/research, pricing analytics, financial modelling, and presentation skills related to highly complex and high value contracts
  • Your contract negotiations build in the required inherent regulatory and compliance clauses and schedules, designed to protect our customers, ourselves and our suppliers. You take ownership in subsequently measuring contract compliance and other key metrics to ensure targets are met or exceeded, and system data remains up to date and accurate.
  • You manage contracts with existing suppliers and know how to get new interesting players out of the market, provide them with the right questions, and challenge them optimally
  • You can help us develop our Wholesale Banking Technology Netherlands Procurement Roadmap consistent with the ING Wholesale Bank Sustainable Future strategy – allowing us to reduce our emissions but not our ambitions
