Retail

Argentus is supporting a world-class retail organization on a new Procurement search. This company has exceptional brand recognition in Canada, having spent the past few decades using its exemplary Supply Chain to help power it towards national reach. They boast a strong shared services procurement model, with a reputation for strategic thinking and innovation in strategic sourcing. Today, they’re looking for several Strategic Sourcing Managers for the HR and/or Professional Services categories! 

Based at the organization’s office in Mississauga, ON will take on strategic oversight and accountability for the above-mentioned categories, with ancillary support for other categories including Information Technology and Marketing. In this role, you will work to develop an overall strategy for the category, leveraging your deep understanding of strategic sourcing best practices to deliver high-value, complex procurement projects to uncover cost savings, efficiency, and innovation through supplier collaboration. Using strong stakeholder relationship building skills, you will form a deep understanding of the categories and how procurement can help make them more strategic. You will use analysis and KPIs to benchmark existing suppliers, work closely with stakeholders in the business to determine their needs in the category, and then go to market with end-to-end RFx processes, including spend analysis, contract analysis, evaluation of bids, supplier negotiations, and supplier consolidation. Using exceptional business acumen, you will work to lower total cost of ownership, and work closely with suppliers to drive value all along the procurement process in the assigned categories.

These are excellent sole contributor-level strategic sourcing roles for accomplished early-to-mid career Procurement professionals. At least 5 years of strategic sourcing experience in indirect categories is a must, with at least several years of experience working at a high level in the Human Resources or Professional Services / Corporate Services category. Experience and exposure to Information Technology procurement, as well as Marketing category procurement, is a strong asset for this role as you’ll be supporting those initiatives as well. The successful candidates need to have exceptional business acumen, and will have led end-to-end sourcing projects to success in these categories. French/English Bilingual is an asset but not mandatory. If this sounds like you and you’re looking to move into a new role, reach out to Argentus today!
