Argentus is pleased to be working with one of our top manufacturing clients on a new search for a Strategic Procurement professional!

They’ve got strong employee incentives and a strong emphasis on work/life balance, and are looking for dynamic individuals who’re looking to work in a high-performance, high-reward environment.
Working out of the company’s location in Burlington, the Strategic Sourcing Specialist will work within an assigned category of commodities to develop and execute Procurement strategy. You’ll work closely with their engineering teams to provide Procurement support for rolling out new products, building supplier bases and helping to influence lead time and cost. You’ll also lead negotiations with suppliers after conducting research based on competitive intelligence, market reports, trade periodicals, etc, and overall work to negotiate the best possible contracts from the perspective of cost and risk. You’ll also support the Procurement function by working with troublesome suppliers to improve KPIs, and resolve issues that the organization’s Production Buyers are experiencing with suppliers. In short, it’s a meaty Procurement role, with strategic depth and real impact as a problem-solver within a highly competitive organization.
