Industry: Public Sector
Argentus is working with a new client, a Public Sector client in burgeoning Newmarket, ON. They’ve connected with us with a contingent staffing requirement: a great 3 month contract in their Procurement department!
Working out of the organization’s Newmarket office, this Procurement Officer will work as a buyer in a number of assigned categories to help manage costs and deliver on requirements with a high degree of efficiency. You’ll work to plan Procurement activities, communicating with stakeholders across the organization to understand needs, then develop bid documents, conduct tenders, and manage the proposal evaluation process to ensure a fair, accountable and open Procurement for each project. You’ll assist with onboarding new vendors, seeking clarification on any points of confusion, as well as negotiating to make sure that each Procurement achieves organizational goals. You’ll also communicate with unsuccessful proponents for bids, offering them feedback based on their submissions. This is a solid bread-and-butter full lifecycle Procurement role, a short-term contract that will allow a skilled professional to stretch their wings and contribute to this Public Sector organization in a meaningful way.
Our client is looking for an individual with at least 3-5 years of Procurement experience in the Public Sector, preferably in one or more of the following categories: Construction, Engineering, Public Works, IT, General Goods and Services, and Consulting. If this sounds like you or someone in your network who’s interested in a great short-term contract, call Argentus today! 416 364 9919 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
