Manager SAP Procurement

Manager SAP Procurement




What are you going to do as a Manager SAP Procurement?

As a manager, you are the linking pin between business and IT in understanding and translating business and functional requirement to SAP Procurement solutions that allow our customers to move to the next generation SAP technology S/4HANA, Central Procurement, SAP Ariba, and BTP. The main responsibility of a manager is to lead the Procurement track of large scale S/4HANA transformations. You’ll work in multidisciplinary teams and are supported by the large community of experts throughout the KPMG organization. You’re involved in all phases of a transformation: from acquisition, strategy and analysis towards design and implementation. There are huge opportunities to gain more knowledge, enforce your skillset, and experience during the phases of a transformation.

Of course you will not do this alone but as part of a team. KPMG has a world-class accelerated Enterprise Business Transformation approach called Powered Enterprise for cloud-based solutions that uses pre-designed back-office leading practices and KPMG’s six-layer Target Operating Model. This includes our best practice approach for finance processes (record to report, source to pay, order to cash, acquire to retire, project to result, plan to perform and treasury). This enables clients to make better, faster decisions, resulting in a quicker implementation and a faster path to Return on Investment. This solution combines the breadth and scale of KPMG’s leading practice, capabilities and insight into a complete solution for an effective back-office.

The Powered Apps teams are communities of technology focused professionals who work together to deliver KPMG Powered Enterprise through a standardized delivery model, which drives professional delivery to clients. The international teams use their functional knowledge and experience (e.g. Finance, Supply Chain, Procurement), coupled with their expertise in the cloud applications (e.g. SAP, Ariba) to lead and deliver client programs, support pre-sales activities and develop improvement and extensions to Powered Enterprise.

If you are passionate about technology and have a strong track record of designing and implementing successful technology solutions, we want to hear from you. We offer a competitive salary, excellent benefits, and the opportunity to work with a talented and dynamic team.

To apply, please submit your resume and cover letter detailing your experience and qualifications. We look forward to hearing from you!
