Industry: Food Service
Argentus is thrilled to be working with one of our top clients in the Food Service industry. This company has a number of high-profile brands, and a reputation for Procurement and Supply Chain excellence. Today, they’re broadening their Procurement function by expanding their indirect spend capability, and to that end they’re hiring a category lead!
Working out of the company’s office in Vaughan, ON, this Category Lead will pave the way for Procurement excellence in a number of indirect spend categories, including: Travel, IT, Telecommunications, Office Services, Benefits, Equipment, Office Consumables, and more. Working with the company’s brand teams, you will identify opportunities for strategic Procurement, leveraging the company’s considerable spend to find improvements in cost, quality, and delivery. You will identify new suppliers, issue RFPs, analyze responses, and negotiate with vendors to add value for these indirect categories – a new set of captured spend for this organization. You will also deal with day-to-day aspects of the category management, responding to issues with pricing, shortages of goods, or transportation as they arise. Further to these deliverables, you will act as a pioneer for Procurement governance in the organization by setting up strong documentation and process for these categories.
This is an excellent Procurement generalist role for someone with significant indirect experience, looking to make their mark with a Greenfield opportunity. At least 5+ years of Procurement experience is a must for this role, with significant exposure to the relevant indirect categories.
