Argentus has a new, forward-focused role with a new client in the GTA. This organization is an excellent operator and market leader within their industry, serving a wide variety of industry partners with a reputation for excellence and strong culture. Today, they’re looking to fill an impactful Procurement role for a Sourcing Manager!
Working out of the organization’s office in Etobicoke, ON., the Sourcing Manager will take ownership of the company’s Logistics category, working to identify and establish vendor partnerships that will contribute added value as the company continues to grow. Their approach to Procurement is collaborative – they’re looking to find new opportunities for innovation in the supplier base, rather than focusing only on cost savings (although those are also important). You will develop strategies, and then execute on front-line sourcing events, work to improve speed to market for the company’s customers, as well as quality of service from the company’s Logistics partners. Collaborate with key stakeholders to drive engagement in the process, understand their needs, develop useful supplier metrics, and ensure a high level of service delivery. You will also be a lead in the supplier negotiations process, working to develop supplier agreements and ensure they’re executed.
In short, this is an impactful, strategic Procurement role for someone with a strong sourcing background. At least 5 years of Strategic Sourcing experience is a must for this role, with specific experience in sourcing Logistics services. This individual also needs to have strong business acumen, an analytical mind, and exceptional ability to collaborate with both stakeholders and suppliers.
