Procurement continues march up the corporate ladder

9 January 2009
Evidence of procurement’s march up the corporate ladder is to be found in this article on jobs that pay more than £50,000. Sitting pretty at number four is the role of purchasing manager, ahead of HR, sales, management consultancy and (perhaps an odd choice) coroner. It chimes with another recent study from a US university that cites procurement analyst as one of the top 10 jobs still available during a recession. The article also states that firms are turning to “the management of the future” because of an expected flood of retirements soon from the “baby boomer” generation. How have your employment prospects and policies changed because of the economic downturn?
