Job offer

We have chosen an ICT management organization with ICT partners who support us, with the aim of taking our services to a higher level. The role of Contract Manager is essential in this transformation. We are looking for a decisive and experienced Contract Manager who will help us manage and optimize our IT contracts.

How do you matter?

What does your day look like?

No day is the same, but here is an example of how things could go.

At the start of the day you will contact the delivery manager to discuss the current contract negotiations. This results in actions that you must take this week with the internal organization and contract partners. You will then have a meeting with colleagues to jointly shape the further development of the management organization. Here you make a proposal for how we, as a management organization, deal with contracts from the IT partners. You will then have an appointment with an IT partner to discuss and comment on the proposal. After lunch you drive home to quietly review a number of contracts and provide comments.

  • HBO+ working and thinking level
  • At least 2 years (medior) to 5 (senior) years of experience in a similar position
  • Knowledge of purchasing processes / European tender processes
  • NEVI 2 Public and/or (international) equivalent knowledge of purchasing and contract management obtained through work experience
  • A strong affinity with the management of IT contracts and contract law, procurement legislation, privacy legislation and IT security

What do we do for you?

  • Salary of a minimum of €4,020 and a maximum of €5,725 per month based on a 36-hour working week (scale 11)
  • This concerns a permanent job that starts with a temporary employment contract of 12 months
  • Individual choice budget (IKB) worth 17.05% of the salary (incl. holiday pay and end-of-year bonus)
  • Personal development opportunities and study facilities
  • A developing department in which a good working atmosphere and collegiality are important
  • Work from home options, an iPhone and laptop

Will you be working here soon?
Working for Operations is working for the driving force of the municipality. This department is involved in every development or process. Advisors and support staff work here to help colleagues do their work. At BV you will find HR, finance, communication, purchasing, information management, research, IT, facility affairs, management advice and legal affairs. In short, great variety in colleagues and in the work.
