Buyers – Public Sector

Remote in Ottawa, ON
Public Sector

Argentus is working with one of our longstanding Public Sector clients on two sole contributor-level Procurement contracts. This universally-recognized Public Sector organization commands a ton of respect for its excellence in Supply Chain, with a strong Procurement group leading the charge as part of a major transformation. Today, they’re looking for a number of Buyers! 

Working out of the organization’s Ottawa, ON office (remote to start as the COVID-19 situation allows), these Buyers will be working on a contract basis for 12-24 months, with potential to move to permanent positions.

In this role, incumbents will provide front-line sourcing and Procurement support on a number of indirect categories relevant to the organization’s spend. Working within Public Sector Procurement guidelines, trade agreements and corporate policy, this individual will execute sourcing projects including planning, bid solicitation, contract award, supplier negotiation, and continued contract management. You will work with stakeholders in the relevant departments to understand short and long-term Procurement needs, and provide ongoing support to these stakeholders as you work to onboard new suppliers after executing Procurement — either through sole source, direct Procurement, or competitive tendering. You will manage the Procurement documentation for the assigned projects, developing strong relationships and acting as a single point of contact for supplier and stakeholder inquiries about ongoing projects. 

In short, this is an excellent role for a Procurement professional with some experience under their belt, looking to move into their next sole contributor-level opportunity. Our client is looking for individuals with at least 2+ years of Procurement experience in Indirect categories (e.g. professional services, IT, travel, marketing, logistics), or direct categories. A university degree is also a requirement for this role. If this sounds like a good fit and you’re looking to make a move, reach out to Argentus today!
