Bain & Company is a global consultancy that helps the world’s most ambitious change makers define the future. 

Across 65 cities in 40 countries, we work alongside our clients as one team with a shared ambition to achieve extraordinary results, outperform the competition, and redefine industries. We complement our tailored, integrated expertise with a vibrant ecosystem of digital innovators to deliver better, faster, and more enduring outcomes. Our 10-year commitment to invest more than $1 billion in pro bono services brings our talent, expertise, and insight to organizations tackling today’s urgent challenges in education, racial equity, social justice, economic development, and the environment. We earned a gold rating from EcoVadis, the leading platform for environmental, social, and ethical performance ratings for global supply chains, putting us in the top 2% of all companies. Since our founding in 1973, we have measured our success by the success of our clients, and we proudly maintain the highest level of client advocacy in the industry. In 2015, Bain & Company opened the Global Business Services Center in Warsaw, in order to provide the best-in-class internal support, efficiently and professionally, to both leadership and consulting teams in Bain offices across Europe, the Middle East and Africa. 


As the Manager - Vendor, Compliance and Operations, you'll join a global team called Results Talent Network (RTN). RTN is a new solution launched by Bain in 2020 in order to build a virtual, scalable network of independent functional experts, implementation specialists and buffer resources to augment Bain case teams and other pools of Bain resources globally.

The RTN has been built to address increasing client demand for deeper expertise and implementation functions to (1) provide relevant, point-expertise that is case specific; (2) deliver results at a lower price point while enhancing the value proposition; (3) compete with competitors who have built up an in-house and/or affiliated contractor network with deep expertise; and (4) help provide ‘buffer’ resource/variabilise key pools of Bain talent (for case teams and elsewhere)


Based in Bain GBS Center in Warsaw the role presents an exciting opportunity for a seasoned and savvy professional in contingent talent management, to help drive and lead RTN’s delivery operations – including vendor management operations - and global compliance. As the Manager - Vendor, Compliance and Operations, you will be part of the RTN’s Global Operations team, working closely with the broader Global RTN leadership team to contribute to the success on the crucial ongoing transformation of RTN’s operating model, and support a new chapter of scaling for RTN globally.

On the operations side, you will also be responsible for managing RTN’s operational relationship with external talent providers. This will include tracking and managing SLA’s, acting as an escalation point for any operational issues linked to RTN’ vendors, and contributing (on the operational side) to grow / enhance the ecosystem of RTN’s preferred talent providers in close coordination with RTN’s Regional Managers and Global Leadership.
