Argentus is working with one of our top clients in the Services industry, with a very strong strategic sourcing function and excellent category management. This organization is undergoing a strategic sourcing transformation to further strengthen their centralized procurement model, and as part of this they’re hiring a Contract & Vendor Management Specialist!
Working out of the company’s Mississauga, ON office, this Contract & Vendor Management Specialist will manage vendor performance optimization within a variety of categories—notably production equipment, maintenance, repairs & operations (direct), as well as real estate, human resources, and marketing (indirect). Working in close collaboration with the stakeholders across business lines, as well as the company’s top flight procurement team, you will work to develop strong relationships with suppliers through vendor governance, while contributing to reducing operational risks, improving cost efficiencies, and finding opportunities to leverage strategic partnerships. You will work with the business to engage vendors and manage the vendor performance program to meet their needs—using vendor scorecarding, KPIs, and other analytical tools to make sure that vendors are adhering to contractual obligations and that the business is gaining the utmost value from these relationships. You will work to create process improvement initiatives with suppliers, and support and execute the contract lifecycle while troubleshooting any vendor issues. In addition, this role is a great opportunity to contribute to a procurement transformation, as you’ll work to support the ongoing modernization program for the organization with a variety of projects.
This is an excellent sole contributor-level role at a fantastic shared services strategic sourcing organization. It’s a perfect fit for someone with at least 5 years of vendor management experience, working with vendor scorecards and KPIs to build value through vendor relationships. Experience with procurement systems (e.g. Oracle, Coupa, Ariba) is a requirement for this role, as is an expertise with the contract management lifecycle. Financial Services industry experience is a strong asset, but not mandatory. If this sounds like you, and you’re looking to move into a potentially career making opportunity with a great company, reach out to Argentus! Call 416 364 9919 or send an email with your current resume to email@example.com.
