Industry: Consumer Goods
Argentus is working with a new client in the Consumer Goods / Consumer Products space. This company is a leader in their category, with a number of highly-recognizable brands. Their Mississauga facility is situated in an excellent natural setting, with a number of amenities. They have a great company culture that facilitates collaboration and teamwork, with a relatively flat organizational structure. Today, this company is looking for a Senior Supply Chain Manager – a leadership role within their innovative Supply Chain function!
Working out of this Mississauga office, the Senior Supply Chain Manager will lead a focused team of three direct reports (buyers and a production planner) to oversee the forecasting and management of an assigned set of commodities within the overall Supply Chain. The main Supply Chain functions you will oversee are Purchasing, Inventory Management and Production Planning, with less emphasis on the transportation side. You will develop a sourcing strategy to improve and enable an effective and efficient supply base, and then execute on purchasing, including negotiations and pricing. You will also manage levels of inventory for both finished goods – sourced from China – as well as raw materials. Alongside with the team, you will execute Production Plans to make sure production matches with inventory, labour, demand, and capacity requirements from the business. In short, it’s a chance to take on a Supply Chain / Operations leadership role and impact the business in a variety of crucial sub-functions. It could be a career-making role for the right individual!
Our client is looking for a high-potential Senior Manager with at least 7 years of experience managing a Procurement team. An individual with a background in Consumer Products / Consumer Goods is the right fit for this role. Someone working within a company that manufactures their products is perfect, but ideally this candidate should have experience sourcing finished from China as well. People management skills are also a key competency for this role. If this sounds like you or a high performer in your network, reach out to Argentus today!
