Argentus is working with a top recent client, a world class Public Sector organization in Toronto. This organization boasts an exceptional Procurement group, as well as a demonstrated track record of success in diversity and inclusion both for suppliers and employees. They’re a great place to work for, and today they’re looking for a Category Manager for Technology spend!

This role is a 15 month contract, with the added value of full-time benefits and vacation — rare for a contract role! Working on a hybrid basis from home / the organization’s Toronto office, this Category Manager will take on Strategic Sourcing duties for Technology spend. This involves providing strategic direction, operational support, and leadership (2 direct reports) for the technology category. In this role, you will oversee a variety of complex procurement projects and initiatives, working to develop and execute RFx strategy for technology goods and services with the goal of reducing total cost of ownership and finding innovation in the Procurement process. You will work to provide oversight and hands-on execution for the entire process, including understanding requirements from stakeholders, building procurement plans, going to market, negotiating commercial terms and contracts, and onboarding suppliers. In addition, you will act as a Technology Procurement subject matter expert within the organization, providing insights about the supplier marketplace, supplier performance and other metrics to key stakeholders. 

This role is an excellent longer contract for someone with extensive experience developing and executing Procurement strategies for technology products and services. At least 5 years of IT strategic sourcing experience is a must for this role. Public sector experience and people management experience are very strong assets for this role as well, but not required. As mentioned above, this is a contract role but features full benefits and vacation for the right individual.
