Strategic Sourcing Manager – Store Equipment – Contract

Mississauga, ON

Argentus is supporting a world-class organization, one of our longstanding clients in the retail industry, on another new Procurement contract search! This company has exceptional brand recognition in Canada, having spent the past few decades using its exemplary Supply Chain to help power it towards national reach. They boast a strong shared services procurement model, with a reputation for strategic thinking and innovation in strategic sourcing. Today, they’re looking for a Strategic Sourcing Manager for their Store Equipment category!

Working out of the company’s Mississauga, ON office, this is a 12 month contract role to support the company’s shared services procurement, primarily within the category of Store Equipment (with an emphasis on packaging). In this role, the successful candidate will take on oversight and accountability for the category, working to develop an overall strategy and execute at a high level with large-scale, high-complexity procurement events. You will work with stakeholders across the business to develop a deep understanding of their needs for the category, and use research to develop a holistic picture of the supplier marketplace before going to market with RFx and other events. You will manage the end-to-end procurement including bid documentation, supplier response evaluation, negotiation, contract development, supplier onboarding, and ongoing supplier relationship management. You will provide operational leadership when it comes to obsolescence, replenishment, shortages, and 3PL relationships for provision of the required goods. Using a strong understanding of analytics, you will develop a systemic understanding of the department’s goals, and use your insights to deliver solutions that maximize cost savings, develop deeper supplier relationships, and find opportunities for innovation and other value from the company’s supplier base.

Our client is offering strong compensation for the role, with a completion bonus upon finishing the contract duration (12 months). This is an excellent opportunity for a proven strategic sourcing contributor with at least 7 years of indirect procurement experience under their belt, particularly within the packaging category, as well as other store supplies including PPE, sanitation supplies, uniforms, and other operational goods. Experience managing a large volume of complex indirect spend is a must for this role, as are exceptional skills with Excel and other analytics tools.
