Procurement

January - March 2015

Hotspots

 

Strategic Sourcing Consultants Candidates who have the ability to 'win' consulting work and then undertake management of the contracts are highly sought after. With a few major projects now gearing up to start, those who have experience undertaking strategic sourcing to strict deadlines are in demand.

 

Category Managers More companies are beginning to utilise a true Category Management model, making specialists in this area increasingly hard to find.

 

Purchasing Officers – Candidates with a focus on risk mitigation are in demand due to a number of manufacturers closing. This has become a focus for employers as local supplier networks go into administration. Purchasing Officers who can offer an extra skill, such as Inventory Management, are highly regarded.

 

Trends

 

Following the peak Christmas period, employers will reflect upon the structure of their workforce and decide to make changes for the rest of the year ahead.

 

There are currently few permanent roles in the procurement market in Western Australia and the majority of new opportunities are on short-term contracts. The main demand is for experienced contracts specialists across all industries.
