Supply Chain and Operations – Sourcing & Procurement Strategy Manager

Accenture

This is a Contract position in Montreal, QC posted May 11, 2022.

We are:

Supply Chain and Operations Strategy, and we move fast, think fast, and work fast. Our Fortune 500 clients need big-picture change, so we come at their challenges from all sides with functional insights, data power, digital leadership, and extensive industry know-how. It’s our job to show clients how to take major leaps forward by integrating interaction points across planning, procurement, manufacturing, and fulfillment. How do we do it? We start by calling out the most important metrics. We then create strategies and operating models that really work and that more effectively connect all stakeholders across the extended supply chain. Optimizing processes, reducing costs, improving response times, as well as driving impact for our planet and society are of critical importance to us. Visit us here to find out more about Supply Chain.

You are:

A skillful procurement strategist and advisor. You know how to make procurement work for clients, society, and our planet – ensuring input products and services are received responsibly without interruption. And, what’s more – you’ve got the real-life experience and analytical know-how to reduce complexity, optimize risk exposure / resiliency and increase long-term profitability. You have energy and drive in abundance, along with personal resilience, a passion for serving clients, and a love of continual learning. You have a flair for breaking down challenges into logical issues and constructing crystal-clear reasoning and root-cause analyses-an aptitude you use to decimate problems. You have both communication and people skills in spades, and as a leader you’re a natural at appreciating diverse perspectives and bringing out the best in teams.

The work:

  • You will support our clients across a broad range of industries to address their issues related to:
    • Competitive agility – maximizing the value of the procurement function
    • 3rd party cost takeout – complex sourcing, should cost modelling for SG&A and COGS, specifications / policy / process refinement
    • Mergers & Acquisition – clean room-based synergy identification
    • Responsible Procurement – redefining, executing and monitoring performance against environmental, social and corporate governance targets.
  • You will spot, isolate, and solve procurement problems using your skills in:
    • Advanced analytics – reviewing large spend, contracts, and consumption data sets
    • Should-cost modelling – indirect / SG&A (incl. technology, marketing, professional services, etc.) and direct / COGS (incl. chemicals, metals, ingredients, etc.)
    • Operating model architecture – people, process technology
  • You will also, throughout your work, have opportunities to:
    • Lead medium sized teams (7+), with diverse backgrounds skills and knowledge
    • Effectively manage and coach others, collaborating with internal and external parties
    • Support client sales origination and thought leadership development
    • Challenge legacy ways of working using constructive techniques that fuel client growth
    • Drive a positive impact in the communities where we work and live

Racking-up those air miles will have to wait, as weekly non-essential travel to client sites Monday through Thursday is currently suspended.  For now, all Accenture business travel, international and domestic, is currently restricted to client-essential sales/delivery activity only.
