Industry: Public Sector
Today Argentus is working with another top client in the Public Sector on a Senior Procurement role. This is a renowned Public Sector organization undertaking a transformation that’s becoming more common: centralizing and adding strategy to their Procurement function, introducing a category management approach, and a procure to pay model. They’re looking for a Senior Director of Procurement on a permanent basis to develop and implement this transformation!
Working out of the organization’s Toronto location, the Senior Director of Procurement will partner with a variety of internal business partners to develop a strategy and drive change across the organization’s Procurement function. It’s a truly impactful role for someone who’s invested in driving Procurement into the future – someone who’s committed to transforming the function into a true partner for the businesses it serves. You will implement procure to pay and category management by developing a new organizational structure based on the organization’s needs. You will also drive specialization among the Procurement team, maximizing their strategic contributions to sourcing, RF(x) development, vendor management, research, and supplier performance management. You will work to develop cost savings, but the focus is also on organizational change and other sources of value. The successful candidate will do all of this within the regulatory requirements of public sector Procurement.
Our client is specifically looking for an individual with at least 10+ years of strategic Procurement experience, an individual who has successfully led these kinds of large scale strategic Procurement transformations. Public Sector experience is an asset, but not a necessity for this role – the most important factors are strategic track record as well as experience managing large-scale teams with significant impact. This client is looking for an influencer with board-room presence and the polish to make your voice heard at the executive level.
