With global economies emerging from a recession and procurement coming of age, the value procurement can add to organisations means the competition for talent in the profession is becoming increasing challenging.

In an effort to provide assistance in promoting the profession and inspiring the best to choose procurement and supply as a long-term career, CIPS and Hays Recruitment recently carried out an in-depth Salary Survey. The aim of the survey was not merely to determine the average remunerations and the differences in regions and sectors, but to find out the perceived value of the profession up to Board level.

Recruiting, retaining and nurturing a first class team is high on the agenda for all senior procurement professionals and with the on-going scandals in the supply chain the call to licence the profession is getting louder. Recent reports from Hays show that the request for candidates with MCIPS or working towards this status is increasing to over 50% of all vacancies as those recruiting try to ensure that these risks are addressed.

Those with MCIPS status are recognising their value to the profession and are aware that increasingly they have more choice. So how do you attract and retain the best?
