Procurement is in demand and pays well
There has never been a better time to be a procurement professional. Here are some stats:
According to Hays recruitment, the average salary for a UK Procurement and Supply professional is £47,435. Procurement professionals with MCIPS have a 24% higher salary and request for MCIPS or studying towards it, is requested by 60% of recruiting organisations.
Procurement is dynamic
There is certainly nothing routine about procurement because it is dependent on evolving factors such and customer needs, innovation, sustainability and compliance. As a result, you can expect many challenges, which will demand that you build relationships with not just your procurement team, but directors, finance, marketing, suppliers, customers and your community.
Procurement is Global
To identify value for your company, you may be required to sources good and services from other parts of the world, which may provide you with the opportunity to not only travel but also experience different cultures and perspectives. Also, with such a globally recognised qualification as CIPS, you will be able to relocate and find employment in other parts of the world.
