VENDOR MANAGER - MARKETPLACE PARTNERSHIPS - REMOTE/ CENTRAL LONDON - £35-55K + PACKAGE - UNLIMITED HOLIDAY - TECH START UP

I've partnered with the leading account based direct mail and corporate gifting platform. They help sales and marketing professionals generate high quality leads and close business faster using integrated personalised direct mail. Think Amazon meets Moonpig but for B2B companies. They are passionate about finding innovative new ways to break through to people and cut through the noise during those moments that matter in business.

The business has been built by 2nd time Founders who have already built one of the most successful SaaS companies in London. The company is backed by some of the most well-known founders and a large US Venture Fund.

They are seeking a Marketplace Partnerships Manager to join the team. Supporting the Head of Supply Chain, you'll be expanding our network of marketplace vendors globally ensuring our customers have access to high quality gifting options across the world. You will work closely with key stakeholders across our organisation and supply chain to ensure everything runs efficiently and smoothly with our partners. The vendor manager will be responsible for driving growth through sourcing of new partners, whilst identifying opportunities for continuous improvement.

The Vendor Manager will be responsible for:

  • Sourcing and launching marketplace vendors across different territories and aligning with strategy across the organization.

  • Manage the contracts and relationships with partners (initial contract, periodic contract review/evolution, renewal/renegotiation, end of life)

  • Run demos and training for our marketplace partners.

  • Building and maintaining excellent relationships with customers and marketplace vendors

  • Ensuring our gift delivery experience exceeds our standards for quality and timeliness

  • Monitoring and advising on any issues which present risks or opportunities to the organisation

  • Supporting the Finance function with order and invoice reconciliation

The Vendor Manager will have:

  • 2+ years of operations scaling and management experience ideally in a high growth / start-up environment.

  • At least 2+ years' experience in Sales and Partnerships

  • You have demonstrable experience in building partnership relationships within a B2B multi-vendor marketplace environment.

  • You have experience in 'high-touch' logistics environments (e.g. retail or eCommerce)

  • You have developed and managed relationships with gifting partners.

This role offers a unique opportunity to join an early-stage, fast growing business with a highly ambitious team. You'll have the opportunity to make a big impact on our company and help deliver major projects. Join London's fastest growing SaaS company who are already the leaders in their space and working with clients like Asana, Okta, Hootsuite, Segment and SAP.
