Argentus is working with a top client in the Manufacturing and Distribution industry on a new Procurement role. This company makes and distributes building materials with a wide variety of applications, and today they’re looking for a Buyer!
This individual will operate out of the company’s Mississauga office to manage sourcing within the function’s Raw Materials and Finished Goods. This role has a few different facets: you will administer the purchase order report, review daily materials requirements using forecasts, and execute purchase orders based on inventory and stock levels. On the next level, you will also work to create strategies for long-term competitiveness within the assigned categories – offering a sourcing perspective on how to transition and upgrade various product lines. You will mainly work with the company’s North American vendors for both raw materials and finished goods, but you will also work on the company’s offshore Procurement with overseas vendors based on forecasts from sales and marketing. In addition, you will also act as a point of contact for communication between vendors, the production team, and customer service logistics team about noncomformance and any other issues that may arise.
This role is a great fit for someone with around 3 years of experience in a manufacturing Procurement role, with exposure both to raw materials and finished goods. For this role, our client is also looking for someone who is currently employed – in other words, passive candidates. If this sounds like you or someone in your network looking to make a move, reach out to Argentus today! Send a copy of your current resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.
