Purpose

Our supplier insight and third-party risk platform makes procurement easy for the whole business by reducing risk and friction. 

It’s never been more important to stay on top of your supply chain and manage it strategically. Contingent helps put your team on the front foot with real-time supplier insights that inspire transparency, help you meet regulatory requirements, unlock opportunities and build resilience.

About us

Contingent was conceived in 2017 and spun out of UK government's innovation award for AI. The company was formed in 2019 after securing investment from leading European venture capital firms. From its inception to today, the Contingent solution has been used by the world's leading organisations to secure their supply chains.

Our team is on a mission to fundamentally change how procurement is done, helping companies reduce friction and increase resilience, while empowering procurement teams to make right choices and partner more closely with the wider business.

Flexible working approach

We are Contingent, and we're passionate about being a flexible place to work.

We were founded on the belief that knowledge and collaboration are enablers of success. We seek to better know and understand our customers to help them to make positive changes in their supply chain. We believe in our people, we embrace the spirit of learning and discovery,  and this allows us to create a uniquely great platform that simplifies complex procurement dilemmas. Thanks to the entrepreneurship and the creativity of our people, we can change the future of the procurement industry.

We recognise that great people deserve nothing less than a great place to work. This is why we actively make safety a prerequisite and encourage our people to take smart risks while we solve problems as a team. We believe that through collaboration, listening to and learning from our team members, we can help each other reach our goals. We put transparency, trust and accountability at the heart of everything we do.

We offer our staff fantastic benefits, including but not limited to enhanced parental leave, work from anywhere scheme, "pawternity" leave, pregnancy loss and fertility treatment leave, and a £2,000 further development allowance per year.
