We’re looking for a Procurement Analyst to join our team. You will be responsible for ensuring the compliance of procurement processes while integrating stakeholders into the process itself. You will support your team to manage purchasing workloads (tickets & requests), prioritize activities, troubleshoot, escalate and expedite projects and deliverables.

In addition, you will be a key element to the business by supporting any operational requests and facilitating the resolution of any vendor related issues.

What you’ll be doing:

  • Monitoring procurement tickets and supporting day-to-day operations
  • Collaborating with Finance, IT and Legal teams to manage and lead status quo renewals
  • Managing and monitoring approvals of company acquisitions using Lightspeed's centralised softwares (dashboards)
  • Proposing continuous improvements and constructive feedback to ensure successful procurement processes within the company
  • Maintaining and updating Lightspeed's Procurement Dashboard and the procurement section of other department dashboards

What you need to bring:

  • 2+ years direct experience in Procurement (ideally IT procurement) and strong knowledge of MS Excel
  • Exposure working with Legal and/or IT department and excellent communication & presentation skills
  • Ability to handle functions related to procurement in a fast paced, highly performant environment (such as: vendor management, RFI/Q/P, benchmarking, multi-scenario business cases)
  • Organized and proven experience leading and managing governances and KPIs (e.g. keeping track of dashboards)

Even better if you have, but not necessary:

  • Post-Graduate in Supply Chain or Business, or equivalent experience in Procurement within multinational companies
  • Project Management/Dashboard and reporting experience
  • Experience in IT Procurement, licenses optimization and knowledge about the key vendors in the industry
