Argentus is working with a brand new client on a number of excellent Procurement roles. This organization boasts a strong, mission focused working culture, and an excellent and growing supply chain team. As part of their ongoing expansion, they’ve tapped Argentus to source a number of Senior Buyers for mission critical indirect categories. 

Working out of the company’s office in Vancouver, BC, these Senior Buyers will take on strategic procurement and contract development duties within a variety of critical categories—in particular Engineering, Construction, and Facilities. In these roles, the successful candidates will develop overall category and contracting strategy, and then execute on those strategies with successful, transparent and competitive procurement processes (RFx). You will work closely with stakeholders, developing relationships and deeply understanding their needs, and then manage the end-to-end procurement lifecycle by developing bid documents, issuing tenders within the organization’s Bonfire online bidding platform, evaluating bid submissions, negotiating with vendors and preparing agreements and other contractual documentation. You will manage contracting and vendor relationships, performing business analysis about supplier and contract performance with the goal of enhancing value from the company’s supplier relationships. In addition, you will work with a variety of key players in the organization to streamline and iterate on procurement processes, continuing to develop it into a centre of strategic excellence within the organization. 

These are excellent strategic sole contributor roles for proven Procurement professionals in Vancouver, ready to take the next step in their career. The successful candidate needs to have considerable end-to-end procurement and vendor management experience within at least one of the relevant categories, including Engineering, Construction, and Facilities. Experience with contract strategy development is also a must for this role, as is experience working within Broader Public Sector (BPS) procurement guidelines.
