The modern Purchasing professional needs to have excellent communication and analytical skills, in order to source the right suppliers, negotiate contracts and set SLAs and KPIs for the supply chain. They also need to be adept at identifying savings that may sit outside of their remit to ensure they are continually adding value to the organisation.

As Purchasing has developed, the use of technology has become more prevalent, using systems such as ERP, MRP and e-procurement as a way of developing and managing the supply chain. With this development, there is greater demand for Purchasing professionals who possess a good working knowledge of such systems.

Our experienced consultants have built extensive candidate networks over many years, providing you with access to the best Purchasing talent available, possessing the niche skillsets you need.
