Industry: Public Sector
Today Argentus is working with one of our top clients in the Public Sector on a number of new Procurement searches. This organization, a renowned Public Sector provider with an excellent strategic sourcing/category management function, has been mandated to provide new strategic Procurement projects and transformational initiatives. They have tapped Argentus to fill out their bench for a number of key Procurement roles!
These roles will work remotely to start, eventually shifting to the organization’s Ottawa, ON office as the COVID-19 situation evolves. This client is hiring for roles at a number of levels, including Strategic Sourcing Manager, Senior Sourcing Specialist, and Buyer. Each individual will be tasked with undertaking strategic Procurement projects, including – with various levels of responsibility – the planning and execution of large-scale, complex RF(x) events in a number of categories. This involves building a strong understanding of stakeholder requirements for each Procurement event, developing a deep understanding of the supplier marketplace within the assigned category, going to market, identifying successful suppliers, and conducting supplier negotiations, onboarding, and execution of supplier contracts. Buyers (3+ years of experience) will be conducting lower-complexity Procurements, whereas the Senior Sourcing Specialists (5+ years of experience) and Strategic Sourcing Managers (7+ years of experience) will work within larger-scale, high complexity projects. That being said, in each role, individuals at every level will be running the process from end-to-end, and should be well-versed in delivering successful RF(x) events.
As mentioned above, the candidates will need to be located in Ottawa in the medium-long term – but our client is willing to offer paid relocation assistance for the right individuals now, or at that time. These are excellent strategic Procurement opportunities, from the sole contributor up to the manager level, at an organization making big moves to pursue continued Procurement excellence. A track record of successfully running complex Procurement events in a variety of categories is a must for these roles. Public Sector experience is a strong asset, but not a requirement.
PLEASE NOTE: A postsecondary degree is required for each of these positions.
