    Young Professionals

    Young Professional Development Network

    Our CIPS Switzerland young professionals’ network is created to bring together young procurement and supply chain professionals within a wider network of experienced professionals who live and/or work in Switzerland or the surrounding countries.

    The majority of our young professional network are between 18 and 35 years old and/or have less than 10-years’ experience in the industry. However, if you do not meet these exact criteria and are still interested in getting involved, you are welcome to contact us to find out more.

    Young professionals will have access to our team of volunteers who can offer their experience about the different training and education options available, advise on different careers in procurement and supply chain and act as a sounding board for important career decisions.

    You can also contact our team directly to discuss different training options for young procurement and supply chain professionals living in and around Switzerland.

    Young professionals will also be invited to join regular meetings and join a network of like-minded young professionals to discuss ideas and shape the future of procurement and supply chain.

    If you want to know more about the CIPS Switzerland young professionals’ network and how to join, contact us here.

    You can also keep up with the latest CIPS news by joining the CIPS Switzerland LinkedIn group.
