Retail

Please Note: This role has been filled.

Argentus is working with one of our top retail clients on a new indirect Procurement role! This company is a renowned retailer with an extremely well-established brand and history in Canada. Today, they’re looking for a Strategic Sourcing Analyst for a full-time permanent opportunity! 

Working remotely to start, (and eventually in the organization’s Toronto, ON office as the evolving COVID-19 situation allows), this Strategic Sourcing Analyst will join the centralized Procurement team to take on front-line sourcing duties within a variety of indirect categories, and provide crucial vendor and other data analysis to support the Procurement function. In a front-line capacity, you will act as a point of contact for operational teams when it comes to purchase order requisition, issuing purchase orders for a variety of goods and services to meet business needs and objectives, and managing the purchase order process through to delivery. In addition, you will conduct data analysis and market intelligence to support the company’s overall category management strategies — including researching industry trends, supplier bases, and opportunities for savings from the data for category spend. You will also monitor vendor performance on an ongoing basis, and provide insights and opportunities to the Procurement organization based on your findings. In addition, you will support the Strategic Sourcing operation by assisting with RFP preparation and planning, working to ensure the data integrity of the contract database, and help resolve any issues within the sourcing process.

In short, this role is an excellent progressive role for someone with 3-5 years of indirect Procurement experience under their belt — someone who has experience in managing the purchase order process, excellent data analysis, communications and relationship-building skills, and is looking to gain further exposure to the strategic sourcing process.
