As a key business management function Procurement still ensures identification, sourcing, access and management of the external resources that a competitive organisation needs or may need to fulfil its strategic objectives. There is no doubt globalisation and the communication evolution over the last 20+ years has raised the profile significantly.
As demand for procurement professionals continues to increase and recognition of the profession transitions from an operational to a strategic function, we understand the skills sets, capabilities, qualities and characteristics needed from your procurement teams to deliver value to your business.
We work across the Procurement functions internationally in roles such as:
- Chief Procurement Officer
- Category Manager
- Contacts Manager
- Head of Sustainable Procurement
Whilst the broadening responsibility now attached to these key roles presents many challenges; brand defining decisions, wider business goals, risk management, sustainable savings, as well as board level stakeholder buy-in, the biggest challenge may well be recruiting and then retaining the right talent to deliver your objectives.
