Job Description

Tech Sourcing Manager

As a Barclays Tech Sourcing Manager, you will be accountable for ensuring that all relevant sourcing documentation is inputted to the deal management and contract systems to be compliant with business and internal procurement policy requirements.

Please discuss the working pattern requirements for the role you are applying for with the hiring manager.
