Last Updated: On November 19, 2021


Associates play varied and challenging roles at Impendi. They are responsible for delivering discrete parts of strategic
sourcing initiatives as part of a team of experts delivering cost reduction targets to our clients. Associates will
execute sourcing strategies in variety of categories for our clients. This is both an advisory and a hands-on role,
where you will advise and help clients think strategically about their spend, as well as work as an embedded
procurement expert.

More specifically, Associates typically:

– Analyze client contracts and spend
– Develop strategic sourcing strategies, and work with clients to execute those strategies
– Work alongside our client stakeholders, helping them learn through your example as a strategic sourcing
practitioner and advisor in the space
– Manage supplier communications and develop relationships
– Run sourcing exercises, including RFx’s, reverse auctions; negotiate commercial terms with suppliers
– Continually communicate progress and synthesize results into recommendations for internal leadership and
mid-level client managers
– Help grow Impendi’s capabilities
– Work alongside a team of experts in your area of practice and with other teams on large cost reduction
programs for our clients

An Associate will gain varied industry exposure, interact with senior client stakeholders, and make considerable
impact from day one. While they receive guidance, an independent intellectual curiosity combined with strong
interpersonal skills is highly valued.

A high level of comfort with numerical and quantitative analysis is essential. Prior experience using applications such
as Microsoft Excel, PowerPoint, and BI tools are mandatory. You will be expected to progress quickly along a steep
