Earlier this month we published our latest Procurement Market Update where we reported on strong demand for procurement consultancy experience from the big four, the major multi disciplinary practices and established niche players.

The skills in most demand at Senior Consultant and Manager level are those required in major transformation projects, sector specific areas of direct spend and both the implementation and adoption of procurement technology like P2P, spend analytics and strategic sourcing suites.

There are also some excellent opportunities at senior management level including Directorships with Partnership potential for those that can contribute to practice growth through sales, leadership and delivery of procurement led projects.

We are working with some of the best names in each sector of the consultancy market to help them attract the outstanding talent they need to grow their practices in competitive but ultimately very favourable market conditions.
