About the Role Supporting the Procurement Data Manager, you’ll take responsibility for the analytical support which may include compiling spend reports, compliance reports and using data insights to develop action plans to drive compliance from our partners. You’ll ensure the timely compilation and regular delivery of performance management analysis and will therefore support the success of the procurement function where you’ll support the design and implementation of category strategies and sourcing plans. What are we doing? We’ve been on a transformational journey, to take procurement at LV to the next level. We’ve been given the opportunity to revolutionise the way we approach procurement at LV, and that has resulted in us creating a more strategic way of working, ensuring we add value, whilst maintaining a competitive edge. We’re adopting market leading practices and delivering effective sourcing solutions. Not only are we customer focussed, but we’re ensuring there are development opportunities within our team so they can continue to grow their career with us. About LV LV employs over 6000 people and serves over 5.7 million customers and members with a range of financial products. We are the UK’s largest friendly society and a leading financial mutual. When we started in 1843 our goal was to give financial security to more than just a privileged few and for many decades we were most commonly associated with providing a method of saving to people of modest means. Today we follow a similar purpose, helping people to protect and provide for the things they love, although on a much larger scale and through a wide range of financial services including insurance, investment and retirement products. Our goal of growing member value is underpinned by our vision: to be Britain’s best loved insurer. We believe that developing products of benefit for our customers and offering a high quality of service will translate into enhanced profitability for our members. We approach business in a way that combines the trusted behaviours of a mutual with the competitiveness you would expect from a successful plc. Our employees are core to our business and we have created a positive, motivated workforce to ensure they offer the best possible service to our members and customers. We call this being ‘sharp with a heart’. About You Naturally, you’ll need to be highly analytical with an aptitude for numbers and data. You should be inquisitive and curious, looking at the data for trends, issues and opportunities. Proven Excel skills is also a must, so we’d like to see that you can create and edit pivot tables, as well as being able to use vlookup’s. You should have strong report writing skills with an ability to create concise and clear reports for a variety of audiences. Any exposure to a payment system, for example Oracle, would be desirable. Being able to build and maintain good business relationships, as well as being able to influence where necessary, is also important within this role. If you have previous experience within procurement that would be advantageous.
