Today, they’re looking for a Contracts Specialist for their indirect categories! 

Working to support the company’s office in Markham, ON (Hybrid), this Contracts Specialist will join the company’s procurement team as a front-line contracts manager for the company’s relationships with suppliers, on a contract basis (7 months to start). In this role, the successful candidate will manage the administration of contracts for a variety of categories, including furniture, fixtures & equipment (FF&E), linens, uniforms, and other key categories. In this role, you will manage questions from the organization’s customers around these categories, surface and escalate any issues, and work to evaluate supplier performance. You will work to negotiate and extend contracts with suppliers as they come up for renewal, assist with supplier onboarding, and ensure supplier conformance with contracts. You will use strong Excel skills to evaluate supplier data, and develop insights from that data to identify any risks in the company’s supplier base as they arise, while finding opportunities for innovation in collaboration with the company’s suppliers. .
