How you'd explain your job at a party

I do administration for all SIDN's contracts and I make sure that everyone in the organisation knows who our suppliers are and how they are performing

What you'll be doing

You'll maintain structured, complete and accurate administrative records regarding our contracts and everything connected with them. The main part of your work will involve independently carrying out various administrative and coordinating activities in the field of contract and supplier management. The work will cover contracts with both clients and suppliers. You'll also be helping the Contract Manager to further professionalise and consolidate our contract management processes. Your professionalism and customer focus will be reflected in the way that you:

  • Process, administer, review and monitor contract provisions and contract documentation flows within the designated digital systems

  • Monitor follow-up of contract flag dates

  • Act as the first point of contact for colleagues at SIDN who have questions regarding contract provisions and associated procedures

  • Report on the relationship between our contractual rights and our actual use of software, licensed services, etc and flag up any discrepancies

  • Support supplier audits and internal audits

  • Arrange for contracts to undergo financial, legal and security reviews

  • Maintain contract management work instructions

What we want

At the SIDN Group, you'll be working for a reliable, innovative employer. We want a Contract Administration Officer who's an administrative multitasker, and also takes a keen interest in the substantive side of contract and supplier management, including the legal and security aspects. Someone capable of handling administrative processes independently and contributing to their continuous improvement. We need you to be dependable, with a clear understanding of administrative principles and the ability to create structure. It's also important that you're versatile, adaptable and able to switch smoothly from one discipline to another. In other words, a true multitasker! You'll also have:

  • Demonstrable ability to work and reason at supplemented secondary vocational level

  • At least three years' relevant work experience

  • Good knowledge of MS Office applications and SharePoint

  • The ability to analyse information well

  • Good written and oral communication skills

About us

SIDN, in full the Foundation for Internet Domain Registration in the Netherlands, is an independent organisation that manages the .nl domain. In 2017, we joined forces with Connectis to reinforce the market for digital identities as well.Connectis supplies software and ID tokens for secure access to public and private services. There's more to domain name registration and secure log-ins than you might expect. We therefore have a team of 150 people dedicated to ensuring that the Dutch internet is as secure and trustworthy as possible. Some are based in Arnhem, others in Rotterdam.

Take a look at the missions and visions of SIDN and Connectis for a fuller picture of who we are and what we stand for. At SIDN and Connectis, you'll see more jeans and tee-shirts than sharp suits. It's a setting where you can be yourself. And there's always something going on: family days, Christmas dinners, sports days, barbecues and even weekends away together. Join in or do your own thing; it's fine either way. Maybe we'll see you soon?
