Argentus is working with a leading firm in the consulting / professional services space, a great Procurement contract with the possibility for extension or perm for the right individual. This organization is a major disruptor and innovator in a number of practice areas, with a strong working culture and a reputation for excellence in strategic Procurement. Today, they’re looking for a Software Sourcing Specialist for a 6 month contract to start!
This role is based out of the organization’s Toronto office, with considerable work from home potential as well. This individual will help run sourcing, as well as contracting, for the organization’s software licenses and various software services. It’s a sole contributor role with specific category duties – namely, Software as a Service (SaaS) agreements, and subcontract outsourcing with software providers. The successful candidate will research and select suppliers, conduct contract negotiations, and develop statements of work for the new agreements. Working with key stakeholders, you will understand requirements, develop and execute on these sourcing initiatives, delivering excellent software solutions and improving the company’s Procurement position from the perspective of cost and risk. You will also work with existing contracts and peers globally to help develop solutions to stakeholder issues as they arise.
Our client is looking for someone with at least 3-4 years of Sourcing experience particularly within the Software category. Experience with SaaS sourcing is an ideal background, as is experience with agency agreements, licenses, subcontract outsourcing, and developing statements of work. Note that our client is specific about their experience requirements, so if you do not have experience in Software Procurement specifically, this role won’t be a good fit. But if you do, and are looking for a great contract with lots of potential for extension or to go permanent, please reach out to Argentus today!
