Recruitment for Procurement
Specialisation and restructuring continue within procurement teams. We’ve seen a gradual move towards streams within a procurement function, including category management, procurement process excellence and vendor relationship managers. Procurement managers and specialists are always highly sought after with sophistication of the procurement function and category always important.
Our experience covers procurement across a broad range of industries. Our procurement team regularly place category managers within the Packaging and Ingredients space but are also finding a growing interest in IT and indirect categories such as Travel. We live and breathe procurement and know what it takes to find your next procurement star.
Driving deep business benefits
The key lever for cost savings; procurement is vital to fund growth and innovation. With higher performance results being demanded, procurement officers are increasingly turning to business process outsourcing (BPO) to help them deliver deeper business benefits. Beyond cutting costs and making marginal savings, masters of procurement are constantly seeking new opportunities to optimise processes that transform their company and propel performance and profits.
