Our industrial manufacturing client in the Montreal region requires a Purchasing Manager with expertise in raw material procurement.
Key focus is on the replenishment of the materials and staying the course in an environment with constant interruptions. You will be level-headed, able to deal effectively with emerging priorities while working under tight deadlines. For you, this challenge is exciting, not overwhelming. You will be cool under pressure, quick on your feet and goal driven.
You will have at least 3-5 years of purchasing experience including overseeing a small team, in addition to strong negotiation skills to ensure on time delivery of goods. In addition you will determine inventory needs and adjust orders accordingly. You will possess advanced communication skills in both English and French, (preferably bilingual), and will be at ease when working with both co-workers, senior level personnel, suppliers and other external parties.
Three key areas of expertise required are rail, bulk material and supervision. If you have all 3 and manufacturing expertise, you will be a strong fit for this role.
Posts secondary education in Supply Chain Management is an asset.
