Today Argentus is working with a great client in Mississauga, a top producer in their field (confidential for now), on an exciting new contract role. This company has a strong, mission-driven culture and a strategic Procurement function. Today, they’re hiring a Procurement Manager for a number of their direct and indirect categories!
Working on a 6 month basis to start, this client is looking for an individual who can hit the ground running to ideate and execute a variety of strategic Procurement initiatives in the assigned categories. You will work to improve service, innovation, cost and quality in all aspects of Procurement by building stakeholder engagement and leading sourcing events. This organization works on a strategic Total Cost of Ownership model, which you will involve in your evaluations of suppliers, along with your strong understanding of the supplier marketplace. You will then work to bring projects across the finish line with strong supplier negotiation, recommendations of awards, presentations of business cases to stakeholders, evaluation of risks, as well as contract execution.
This is a great role for someone with strong cross-functional Procurement skills (at least 5+ years of experience), armed with the background and strong business acumen to get buy-in and leverage supplier relationships in a variety of categories. They’re willing to look at someone with any category experience (be it on the direct or indirect services side). They’re looking for someone with management consulting experience, who has hit the ground running very quickly in a previous role, but will be happy to see anyone with strong business acumen from any relevant industry. Finally, this is a contract role, but there is potential to go permanent for the right individual.
