Argentus is working with a great retail client on a strategic procurement role for one of the most important indirect categories: construction. This client is a universally recognized brand in Canada, with a storied history and incredible track record in the retail industry. Today, they have an urgent need for a Strategic Sourcing Manager on a short-term contract.
Working out of the company’s Mississuaga, ON facility, this strategic contractor will take on category management for indirect spend in the construction category – particularly within furniture. You will provide analysis of the category, and identify opportunities for strategic improvement given baseline cost. Using your strong understanding of the supplier marketplace, as well as research, you will work to source alternative suppliers to meet the company’s requirements for the category. You will then execute on the developed strategy by leading RFQ, RFI and RFP events, and act as Procurement’s lead voice in subsequent negotiations with suppliers.
This contract opportunity is perfect for a Strategic Procurement expert with a deep understanding of the construction category, and at least 5 years of experience, ideally within purchase of furniture. It’s an opportunity to have real impact in a short-term role by leading sourcing strategy, process and negotiation for a top-tier company.
