The role:

Working in Procurement:-

Generally speaking, procurement is responsible for both optimising costs and delivering savings. Careers in procurement benefit from early exposure to senior-level stakeholders and as procurement is very much a sector in which doors are there to be opened, personal performance is rewarded through career progression.

Procurement can also offer a wide variety of different projects and skillsets. Some may require a focus on analytics and delivering rapid cost savings, others may call for a more hands-on approach. Examples range from benchmarking to designing more effective supply chains.

The sheer variety of service areas that procurement interacts with also makes it appealing for anyone looking for new challenges. Procurement is predominantly outwards focused; at NEPO you collaborate with individuals from various service areas both within and outside of our region, gaining a wealth of cross-departmental, even cross-industry experience.

Careers in procurement represents a fantastic choice for individuals looking for a varied and exciting role with great career prospects. This is one of the few sectors where new employees are given the opportunity to prove their worth and take charge of their own projects, from start to finish. The current economic climate has seen an increasing number of organisations turn to their procurement teams to deliver growth and generate income.
