Currently a Barclaycard Supplier Relationship Manager, key responsibilities include:

- Ownership of Business Unit third party supplier performance monitoring, governance, and overview and remediation of issues.

- Providing operational and subject matter expertise around the management of risks associated with key suppliers and third party vendors.

- All supplier and contract management activities, including: coordinating supplier assurance activities; providing supplier performance oversight; managing contractual processes & formal contract changes; financial/risk assessment reviews

Key achievements:

• Brought a legacy portfolio of suppliers into governance within six months, by implementing the Barclays Group Supplier governance framework, coordinating all assurance activities and pro-actively ensuring corrective actions were taken to eliminate any regulatory or operational deficiencies.

• Identified risks to the budget and reduced supplier portfolio costs by 20% (£1 million) in 2015 by re-negotiating pricing structures to reflect anticipated growth, moving to more cost effective solutions, and removing non-value adding activities.
