  • Proficiency in Microsoft Office and procurement and finance software (Ex : Suite Google, Vendor Portal like Amazon, Google, Dell, government of Qc and Can, etc) 
  • A good critical sense and a good capacity for negotiation.

The added values :

  • You will be an active member in building our new Sourcing and Purchasing department within an organization that understands the value of your work
