Procurement Specialist  
(Amsterdam)

We offer a blazing-fast, cutting-edge network that connects scientists, researchers and academics across Europe and the world

GÉANT is the association where 40 European National Research and Education Networks (NRENs) collaborate. Collectively, we serve over 10,000 institutions and 50 million users. GÉANT is a fundamental part of Europe’s e-infrastructure, delivering the pan-European GÉANT network for scientific research, education and innovation.

Thanks to our terabit network, 50 million researchers, scientists, academics and students can share record volumes of data unconstrained by location, solving some of mankind’s biggest challenges.

Work at GÉANT and you’ll be supporting critical research into sustainable energy, deep space, high-energy physics, earth observation, environmental disasters, medicine and more!

Position Purpose
GÉANT operates as a centralised purchasing body (CPB), which runs aggregated procurements on a pan-European scale, for the NRENs and the wider Research and Education (R&E) community in Europe. The candidate will be part of a highly regarded procurement team, organising procurement and tender efforts, for network and over-the-top service. This involves:

Aligning the needs of the GÉANT community;
Identifying suitable delivery and operational models;
Engaging the market;
Running procurements;
Establishing agreements and managing the relationships with suppliers.

GÉANT operates primarily in the technology sector (especially cloud and telecoms) and the candidate must be able to consider many dimensions simultaneously: how the IT market works; how customers in the Research and Education community consume; and the boundaries of the EC Procurement Directive regulating the procurement. Scale and complexity will not challenge the ideal candidate.

GÉANT has an important role in the European Open Science Cloud Programme. Specifically, GÉANT coordinates the efforts in the Open Clouds for Research Environments project (OCRE), where together with several partner organisations a large-scale tender for cloud and Earth Observation is organised to drive further adoption of cloud services in the research and education community.

Why work for GÉANT?
Thanks to our terabit network, 50 million researchers, scientists, academics and students can share record volumes of data unconstrained by location, solving some of mankind’s biggest challenges.

Work at GÉANT and you’ll be supporting critical research into sustainable energy, deep space, high-energy physics, earth observation, environmental disasters, medicine and more!

Benefits of working for GÉANT
You’ll receive excellent benefits at GÉANT – we offer a 8 % holiday allowance and a 5% end of year end of year allowance as standard. We also invest heavily in learning to help our people become the best at what they do.

The other benefits you receive will depend on the country you are employed in, but you can rest assured that these will include an appropriate pension scheme and a collective medical insurance and/or a medical insurance allowance.
