Thriving on a diverse company culture, celebrating the uniqueness of our employees and committed to inclusion. Proud to be an equal opportunity employer.


The Global Procurement Citizenship Center of Excellence ("COE") is responsible for ensuring Corporate Social Responsibility through our supply base, inclusive of Supplier Diversity & Inclusion, Supplier Sustainability and Supplier Risk.  The COE's primary responsibility is to manage risk and enhance J&J's reputation by acting as the subject matter experts ("SME's") and setting strategies to manage these core areas on behalf of the J&J Enterprise. "Risk, Reputation and Citizenship" is a critical value pillar identified within the Global Procurement Strategic Framework and reinforces the significant and broader impact of Global Procurement, beyond bottom-line savings delivery.  The COE is undergoing a transformational reorganization which will create two distinct parts of the organization: one focused on a team of subject matter experts (the Citizenship Solutions team) and one team focused on critical enablement activities in support of the SME's (the Citizenship Enablement team).


The Senior Manager, Supplier Risk Solutions will be responsible for developing and executing solutions for the J&J enterprise to minimize risk and enhance J&J reputation through our vast network of suppliers. S/he will be relied upon as a leader in our Global Procurement supplier risk management strategy and approach, focused on leading the development and implementation of risk solutions.  Supplier Risk is an area of ever-increasing complexity and visibility in today's political and global environment and therefor requires time spent partnering with and learning from external stakeholders.


The individual will have several strategic responsibilities including but not limited to:

  1. Lead the design and implementation of a risk management Control Tower, which will provide supplier information that will be used to inform our integrated risk management strategy.
  2. Own the strategy and approach for external risk sensing.
  3. Manage our third-party solution provider for external risk sensing including supplier contractual performance.
  4. Support the design of a multi-generational Procurement Supplier Risk Strategy that categorizes supplier risk, prioritizes it then identifies how we will use data, process and technology to manage it.
  5. Conduct benchmark and best practices sharing with industry peers and thought leadership organizations.
  6. Co-lead the building of Supplier Risk assessment requirements into the Acquisitions and Divestitures process; and;
  7. Attend external conferences for continual education, networking and industry presence to inform future strategy development.

In order to be successful, this individual must partner closely with their peers across the Citizenship COE: Senior Manager, Supplier Sustainability Program, Senior Manager, Human Rights & Sustainability Compliance, Senior Manager, Supplier Diversity & Inclusion and Manager, Senior Manager, Supplier Risk Management, and BEL & Category Engagement. Equally important to success will be this individual's ability to build strong engagement & alignment with key senior business leaders across Procurement, EHS&S, Supply Chain, Global Community Impact, Compliance & Risk, Audit, Legal, Government Affairs, HR, and Finance because delivery of the programs will be done through others, outside the Citizenship COE.
