Argentus is working with one of our top clients in the Professional Services industry on a great Procurement leadership role. This company is a global firm servicing a number of industries, with a commitment to diversity and a successful, matrixed organizational structure. Today, they’re looking for a Procurement Manager!
This is a full time, permanent role that may work remote from anywhere in Canada to support the company’s offices across the country, with occasional travel. Reporting to a Senior Director in the organization, this Procurement Manager will take on strategic development and sourcing execution for a variety of indirect categories, including Information Technology and professional services. In this role, you will work within the company’s matrixed environment to deliver Procure-to-Pay (P2P) projects from end-to-end, working closely with stakeholders to deeply understand their needs, researching the supplier base for assigned categories, going to market through RFx and managing the bid process, evaluating suppliers, developing contracts, and negotiating with suppliers to drive cost savings and innovation in the procurement process. You will oversee one direct report within the procurement organization, coaching and mentoring them to success as they assist in execution of projects and provide analytical support. In addition, you will manage ongoing contracts and supplier relationships based on scorecards and KPIs. Our client is in the process of completing a Procure-to-Pay (P2P) transformation (Coupa), and is looking for individuals ideally with experience with similar implementations—as you’ll work to build and maintain excellent data in the company’s eProcurement tool.
The successful candidate for this role needs to have strong strategic sourcing experience within complex, large-scale spend for indirect categories—including information technology. Please note: this role is in indirect strategic sourcing, so direct procurement experience (e.g. from within manufacturing) is not an ideal fit. Ideally, our client is looking for candidates who come from a professional services industry background. Expertise with Coupa is a requirement, and experience managing Coupa implementations is a strong asset.
