Procurement Executive (IT)

Barco designs technology that makes everyday life a little better. Seeing beyond the image, we develop sight, sound, and sharing solutions to help you work together, share insights, and wow audiences. Our focus is on three core markets: Enterprise (from meeting and control rooms to corporate spaces), Healthcare (from the radiology department to the operating room), and Entertainment (from movie theaters to live events and attractions). With a team of over 3,600 employees, located all around the globe, we realized sales of 1,082.6 million euro in 2019. 



In this role, you will manage one or more non-production procurement categories. Your main focus will be on IT related categories (at least 75 percent of your time).



Key Responsibilities


  • You are responsible for the proper supplier selection, the negotiation and the contracting of goods and services at the lowest total cost, with the right quality and at optimal service levels.  For that, you will utilize spend analytics and sourcing techniques to rationalize the number of suppliers, apply a smart negotiate strategy to gain favorable terms and conditions, draft contracts up to signature, and maintain key supplier relationships to ensure continuity of business.
  • This role with many cross-functional contacts inside and outside Barco brings lots of variety and action in your day to day job. As for example: teaming up with project managers and departments responsible on sourcing projects and cost reductions, or working with the legal counsel on procurement contracts, or challenging negotiations with suppliers.
  • As your experience broadens, you will become the sourcing and subject matter expert for the procurement categories you manage.



We are looking for a new colleague who


  • Has a higher degree in a business oriented domain
  • Is proficient in verbal & written English.
  • Is successful in establishing and maintaining solid relationships.
  • Result oriented negotiations, integrity and doing business in an ethical way is a given for you.
