Shaping the future of Sage by empowering people.

Breaking barriers

At Sage, we’re making a global difference to our customers by helping them perform at their best and challenging the status quo. And it’s our Corporate Functions teams who help make this possible. At the core of these teams is innovation. From the apprentices and colleagues in Finance & Tax who deliver financial insights, to the people working in Legal who enhance our business processes, systems, and outcomes, everyone is empowered to make decisions so colleagues and customers thrive. Working alongside people from multiple nationalities and departments across the globe, these teams are committed to driving positive change at Sage.

Corporate Functions teams snapshot

Our Corporate Functions teams equip people with the tools and expertise they need to achieve their goals and propel Sage forward. 
Delivering financial insights and partnering with key business leaders, the Finance & Tax teams embed best-in-class business intelligence and SaaS metrics for our customers. In this function, the job roles can range from Finance Business Partners to Accountants or Financial Analysts.

Across Sage, it’s these insights that enable our teams to make better commercial decisions and manage the costs, investments, and performance of strategic objectives.
We meet the needs of our customers, partners, and colleagues through our Legal teams. Within these teams are legal counsels and paralegals who improve the business processes and outcomes by establishing a culture of innovation and excellence.

Whether it’s looking after patents and trademarks, or protecting the copyright of designs, confidential information, and trade secrets, our Legal teams ensure a seamless service across the business.
At Sage, procurement isn't just about saving costs. It improves our operations, builds relationships, and helps us to identify the products and services that deliver value and support to an ever-evolving business.

Within the Procurement & Supply Chain teams, the ability to influence and negotiate is key. Buying anything from software to stationery and external supplier contracts, these teams are accountable for strategic advice and the leadership of corporate spend sub-categories across Sage. Collaborating across every function, they find efficiencies within the supply chain and help manage our future demand.
Every day is an opportunity to influence the company as a whole for our HR & People teams. From our Employee Relations Specialists to the People Business Partners and Talent Acquisition Partners, every role holds the keys to shaping the future of the company.

Day-to-day, these teams manage the colleague and company relationships and ensure people are equipped to achieve their potential. They serve as company composition guardians by applying employment laws, recruitment decisions, and developing retention strategies so that Sage remains robust with extraordinary people.
Our Corporate Affairs teams keep colleagues and stakeholders invested and engaged. From Public Relations seeking opportunities to tell our stories to Internal Communications, who make sure colleagues always know what’s happening, these teams are innovators in delivering information.

Our Sage Foundation teams have achieved over 150,000 hours of colleague volunteer time while our Sustainability teams infuse environmental goals into every part of the business. But it’s our Corporate Communications teams that engage the interest of people, inside and outside of the company, building relationships and influencing our reputation. Together, they accelerate understanding of what it means to live our values to people all around the world.
