Industry: Public Sector
Argentus is working with a new client in the Ottawa region on a number of Public Sector Procurement searches. This client is a Public Sector agency with a strong culture of vision and mission in delivering services to taxpayers, consistently recognized as a top employer in their field. Today, they’re looking for two Procurement Officers – one on a permanent basis, one on contract – for their office in Ottawa, ON!
These individuals will work with a broad subsection of stakeholders within the organization to help deliver Procurement for indirect categories, with a high standard of speed and strategy. Our client is specifically looking for individuals to oversee the Facilities or Construction categories, but experience in a number of indirect categories is relevant for these roles. You will evaluate various Procurement opportunities and risks, and work within stakeholder requirements to execute on Procurement strategies by running Requests for Proposal, Request for Tender, Request for Qualification, and other RFx events. You will also work to evaluate submissions and develop contracts alongside vendors, ensuring strategic alignment with stakeholder needs at every stage of the process. You will act as a subject matter expert for Procurement within the organization, working to update best practices and processes to maximize cost savings and minimize risk.
Our client is looking for individuals with at least 3 years of experience in indirect Procurement. This experience must include a significant, proven track record in managing and running RFx events, and demonstrated ability to build relationships with internal stakeholders and external suppliers. As mentioned above, our client is hiring for both Permanent and Contract, so we are able to represent candidates for whichever is their preference. Facilities or Construction category experience is a nice to have, but not necessary for this role. If this sounds like you or someone in your network, send a copy of your current resume outlining the above expertise to firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call at 416 364 9919!
Note: While these are public sector positions, our client does not require public sector experience for these roles.
