Senior Procurement Specialist

Location:
Greater Toronto Area, ON
Industry:
Transportation

Argentus is thrilled to be working with yet another new client, this time in the transportation space, on a Procurement role for someone looking to take the next step in their career. This organization boasts a great working culture, renowned name, and a small and growing Procurement team looking to establish new best practices and continued excellence going forward. Today, they’re looking for a Senior Procurement Specialist! 

Working out of the company’s Greater Toronto Area (GTA) office, this individual will join the Procurement function specifically to work within the categories of capital equipment, construction, electrical, civil engineering and fleet. Big-picture, this individual will support the Procurement Manager, as well as internal stakeholders, with sourcing and contract management for these various goods and services. You will help develop and then implement processes and best practices to support Procurement within these categories, working to meet the business’s strategic needs, save costs, and maximize the effectiveness of overall supplier relationships. You will use your sourcing and contract management chops to expedite existing projects, and conduct new sourcing projects from end-to-end, working to continually evaluate and improve on category spend practices across the organization. You will build strong relationships with internal customers by deeply understanding their requirements, and then work with suppliers to deliver exceptional services to the organization, and manage ongoing supplier relationships to build the most value.

This is an excellent sole-contributor level Strategic Procurement role for someone with at least 3-5 years of Procurement experience under their belt. A high level of organization, resiliency, versatility, and relationship-building skills are also key, as you’ll work to get stakeholder buy-in as you execute on Procurement strategy across the organization. Experience developing new procedures and best practices within a Procurement organization is also a strong nice to have. Our client is most interested in candidates with capital equipment, construction, electrical, civil engineering and/or fleet category experience, but they will look at individuals with other relevant category experience as well.
