Strategic Project Procurement Advisor

There is no stopping you. You are high energy, ambitious, and you want nothing more than to work in a dynamic environment where you can utilize your skills in business development, IT procurement, and knowledge of total cost ownership to provide a strategic perspective on a transformational project.

If you find yourself resonating with any of this, we have the role for you. Our client, who is a leader in the global agricultural market has an immediate need for a Strategic Transformational Procurement Project Advisor to join their team. This is a 1-year contract position with the possibility for extension, located at their office in Saskatoon Saskatchewan.

On a day to day basis your work will include:

  • Providing out-of -the-box solutions that will make you the face of procurement using an agile procurement approach.
  • Negotiating IT and IP contracts, and procuring IT products and services with a focus on Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
  • Building partnerships with vendors on a global basis to create a think tank of sorts for IT.
  • Participating in optimization and digital transformation.

What this role is:

  • Strategic. You are well versed in strategic development and use your knowledge of procurement, business development, sales, TCO (and even category management), to provide out of the box solutions.
  • IT focused. You will negotiate IT and IP contracts to procure IT goods and services from vendors globally for the purposes of digital transformation.

What this role is not:

  • Transactional. Although you will need a strong knowledge of procurement, and supply chain for this role it is more of a big picture strategic role rather than day to day.

Applicants with a related university degree, experience with supply chain management and procurement, and at least 8 years of purchasing experience will be contact by our team for a deeper level discussion about this role.
