Summer greetings from Bronwen Hann, Senior Partner
For many of you, it has been a while since we have been in touch. We have been doing some very exciting things here at Argentus. We have undergone a name change to Argentus Talent Acquisition and with that we have a great new website,which I encourage you to review regularly because it’s full of helpful information to assist you and those you know in your career search. We are constantly adding new information for your edification – both for clients and our candidates.
For example, there will soon be a White Paper out giving up to the minute salary compensation averages/information in Supply Chain and Procurement roles in Canada. There is a lot of disparity from one industry to another, Public to Private, job to job and Argentus is doing an insightful comparison of who is paying what (no we don’t tell names of course) which will add clarity once and for all to the talent war in SCM.
I also think you will particularly like our blog which covers some very hot employment related topics such as how to brand yourself better and how to be the most effective on LinkedIn http://www.argentus.com/category/blog/
Argentus now has a mobile App for iPhone & Androids so we encourage you to stay in contact with us on the run. We are also on Twitter (@employcanada), Facebook and LinkedIn for up to the minute updates.
Another exciting development for us this year was a significant modification to our business model. We added Contingency/Contract in Supply Chain Management and Purchasing in a big way. We are very pleased to report that we are working with one of the major Financial Institutions in providing significant talent in their Strategic Sourcing Group and have been taken on by one of the top Insurance Companies for Contract/Contingency as well as having been identified by a large telelcom provider among others, as a Recruiter of Choice for Contract for their Procurement needs. We expect this to only get better and stronger in the years ahead.
Manufacturing has expanded for Argentus in SCM as well. There have been some interesting senior roles in Logistics and Distribution and we see this as a big growth area so stay tuned.
We are in the midst of a significant update of our database. We are trying hard to reach back out to candidates we have been in touch with in the past. We very much would like to reconnect so I encourage you to help us by letting us know what you are up to by shooting us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please send an updated resume or simply a quick note with your current contact information even if you’re not looking because we pride ourselves on following everyone’s career in our narrow vertical. Staying in touch with the passive market is what it’s all about for us.
I want you to know that we are very busy right now with some tremendous opportunities which are available for review on our website. We would love to hear from you if you have an interest in discussing your career options.
Lastly, we have a fantastic referral program. We’ll pay you up to $1000 if you refer and we place someone you sent to us in Procurement, Supply Chain, Logistics or Retail Category Management. Put that network to really good use – be a Connector. That’s probably one the best incentive networking programs around. We’d like to see you take advantage of that.
