Vendor Manager

Location: Timisoara, Romania

Lingo24 is looking for a Vendor Manager to join the Production area of Lingo24.

The Vendor Manager as part of a team, is responsible for the shape and size of the linguists’ database to ensure that Project Managers have enough resources at any necessary time, at the right price, with the required qualifications to deliver the expected quality within the time frame of the projects for our client(s).

The main objective of the Vendor Managers, as part of the Production area of Lingo24, is to act as contributor by supporting Project Managers to find and allocate the appropriate suppliers from a price, quality and availability point of view, on the day-to-day delivery of our translation services for our client(s), while working alongside the Production team to meet our delivery and financial objectives.

We would expect you to be:

  • C1 Level of written English – eloquent and clear in communicating with linguists from across countries and cultures;
  • Passionate about languages and the translation process;
  • Sensitive to international experience and differences between cultures, understanding what impact words might have on linguists from different parts of the world;
  • Empathetic, with an ability to anticipate how linguists might react, with strong interaction and negotiation skills in writing;
  • Quality assurance oriented and with an eye for detail;
  • Problem solver – inquisitive problem solver seeking to proactively explore challenges and new ideas for our clients and our business, basing decisions on evidence and aligning solutions to our company services.

In this role, you will get the opportunity to:

  • Recruit suppliers for same day, small jobs, rare language combinations or exceptional project conditions, where the linguists’ database lacks in resources, ensuring a minimised quality risk;
  • Identify new talent at affordable prices and negotiate rates with existing linguists (where required);
  • Ensure that the onboarding process is followed and that linguists are tested, approved and receive proper training;
  • Maintain and update our database of linguists so that it can, at any time, be used by the Project Managers to assign them to projects;
  • Select and oversee the allocation of linguists (by helping PMs allocate the right linguists on projects and, where the database is limiting, build business cases and recruit new linguists to fill the gaps in the existing database).

  • 7 hours work-day with a one hour lunch break
  • Flexible working hours
  • 24 days paid holiday/year plus an additional day of holiday starting with the 3rd year in the company
  • Loyalty month: every 5th year in Lingo24, you get a celebratory month on top of your standard holidays
