PMO Admin

LOCATION:  Budd Lake, NJ, US
JOB CATEGORY:  Commercial
A mutually rewarding experience.
Work. Realize your ambitions. And realize there’s more to being in business than just making a profit. That’s the Mars philosophy. And the opportunity we offer every one of our Associates. An opportunity to take what you do and make it mean more for you, for those around you and for the planet.  What you get here is challenging, interesting work. You get the tools you need to do a great job and you get to have the best possible people on your side to help you do it. And at the same time as getting to find ways to do business better today than we did it yesterday and driving a great career, you also get to build a more enlightened business and drive sustainability.
Because it’s never just about a single person, a single project or a single brand. It’s about how you can grab everything that’s within your reach here and use it to pursue mutual, long-term gain. It’s about having ideas. And ideals. Being prepared to risk failure because the promise of success means we’ll all be a little better off. It’s that mix of integrity and ambition that makes Mars such a special place to work. And why working here is always about more than just a job.

Job Purpose
Our competitors have invested significantly in effectiveness and efficiency throughout the Source to Pay (S2P) process, which is leaving us at a competitive disadvantage. Our procurement processes are often different across segments and regions and particularly in the area of Indirect goods and services. They are also supported by outdated systems, which means that our segments are unable to make good business decisions based on clear, robust data and information.
Mars Global Services (MGS), MGS Commercial Indirect, Mars Commercial Services (MCS) and Mars Financial Services (MFS) have come together in partnership with the segments to transform this key area. This will entail designing and deploying a new leading edge S2P tool to support a standardized Indirect buying process globally, under the project name Keystone. Keystone is a $20M, multi-year investment and when fully deployed will deliver the new standard S2P Indirect process and tool across the global business. This will lead to greater efficiency and effectiveness through standardization and automation.
The program organization is remote and dispersed; communication, coordination and knowledge management while creating a collaborative community requires attention and focus. This role will provide the catalyst to define and promote good knowledge management and sharing. In addition this role will support planning and coordination activities for the program and its four work streams.
