Argentus is pleased to be working with one of our top manufacturing clients on a new search for a Strategic Procurement professional! This company, located in Burlington, ON, is a fast-growing and respected manufacturing company. They’ve got strong employee incentives and a strong emphasis on work/life balance, and are looking for dynamic individuals who’re looking to work in a high-performance, high-reward environment. Today, they’re looking for new Project Buyers to help bolster their Procurement function!
Working out of the company’s Burlington facility, these Project Buyers will take on sourcing and purchasing duties for assigned commodities within the mechanical and electrical categories. You will draft, monitor, and release purchase orders according to various project and MRP requirements, in co-ordination with the inventory optimization and Supply Chain teams. You will act in a vital Procurement support role for new product introductions by helping to cost out and develop a sourcing strategy for new products, and then execute Procurement using an RF(x) process to ensure that materials are in place for the first builds of those new products. Afterward, you will help transition those procurements for new product commodities into a continuous supply once products hit the market.
In short, this is a fast-paced, impactful direct Procurement role in a world class manufacturing organization. Our client is looking for individuals with a background in commodities purchasing within one or more high-tech industries such as aerospace or electrical manufacturing. At least 3-4 years of experience is a must for this role.
