Today Argentus is thrilled to be working with another brand new client in the Automotive industry—a major recent focus of ours—on a new Procurement role! This company is a renowned Tier 1 Automotive supplier, with a focus on quality, precision, and manufacturing excellence. Today they’ve tapped Argentus to help them find a Purchasing Supervisor
This Purchasing Supervisor will work out of the company’s facility in Guelph, ON (on-site role), taking on front line procurement and team management duties within purchasing for the company’s raw materials, maintenance, repair & operations (MRO), plant services, and other operational spend. In this role, the successful candidate will develop and implement strategy across these categories, working within key functional metrics to reduce expenses, improve quality, mitigate risk and find opportunities for innovation as part of the purchasing process. Leading a small team, you will execute procurement projects to secure sources of supply for the categories, while also working to track various metrics for purchasing and supplier performance. You will use an understanding of market trends and the supplier marketplace to forecast changes in price that will provide leverage to the organization, perform cost and scenario analysis, and use that knowledge to build strong relationships with a variety of vendors and suppliers locally, internationally within North America, as well as offshore.
This is an ideal role for someone with at least 5 years of Direct Purchasing experience within a manufacturing environment, preferably the Automotive industry—perhaps a Senior Buyer looking to take the next step in their career into more of a leadership role. Experience leading a team is also a must for this role, as are exceptional analytics skills and experience with MRO and facilities services spend. If this sounds like you, and you’re looking to move into a new role, reach out to Argentus today!
