Can you help us to encourage more young people to take up procurement as a profession of choice?

Can you help us to encourage more young people to take up procurement as a profession of choice?

If you have chosen a career in procurement and never looked back, why not spread the word and encourage more young people to join the profession. If you, or someone in your team is under 25 years of age and would like to share their story of how they got into procurement and why they are glad they did, then we’d like to hear from you. E-mail a Youtube or Dropbox link to of your 30 second video clip to emma.scott@cips.org by 6th Sept and if your story is chosen for our website we’ll send you a £20 Amazon voucher as a thank you.

Some tips for a good video. Smart phones, video cameras and webcams are all perfectly good mediums to use, just make sure you are well lit and there isn’t any background noise. Think about what’s in the background, busy wallpaper, traffic outside of a window etc. can all be very distracting for the viewer. Don’t forget to introduce yourself and tell us where you work. Finally don’t forget to seek permission from your line manager. We’ll need to seek full permission from your organisation to publish the video. Good luck, we look forward to watching your video soon.
