The search is on to find a rising star working in supply chain in the oil and gas sector.

Nominations for the first Young Oil & Gas Supply Chain Professional of the Year Award are now open. The prizewinner will be announced at the Oil and Gas UK supply chain seminar, hosted by the industry body and CIPS, in Aberdeen on 30 June.

Phil Broughton, corporate relations, energy and oil and gas sectors, CIPS, said: “Finding the stars of the future is a responsibility we all share as these gifted supply chain professionals will help drive improvements, manage change and disseminate good practice."

Entrants to the award must be 30 or under on the date of the event, a member of CIPS or Oil & Gas UK, with work linked to, or directly serving, the UK continental shelf, and have authorisation from their manager. The deadline for nominations is midday on Friday 12 June, and will be judged by a panel of industry experts.

Nominees must fill out the nomination form and explain how the candidate has boosted the reputation of procurement, how they have delivered value and how they have done something innovative.

The seminar, entitled 'Simplicity – can it be standard?', at which the award will be presented, takes place at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre on 30 June.

Broughton said: “Outstanding performances often come from reassessing existing processes and exploring how other sectors rise to business challenges and, accordingly, the supply chain seminar will provide delegates with thought-provoking input from speakers representing the aerospace, power generation and automotive sectors."
