With the interim procurement market continuing to be incredibly buoyant, Jack Birch, Senior Manager – Interim Recruitment, shares his thoughts on ways organisations can attract procurement and supply chain professionals to their organisations.
Attracting talented procurement and supply chain interims is an important task for any organisation looking to fill a temporary gap in their procurement and supply chain operations.
And, across the Interim recruitment team at Procurement Heads, we have continued to see huge demand from clients looking to bring in short to medium-term support.
The right interim can bring valuable experience, skills, and expertise that can help your organisation move forward.
Here are three ways to attract the best procurement and supply chain interims:
Offer competitive daily rates:
One of the most effective ways to attract talented procurement and supply chain interims is to offer competitive daily rates.
Interims are highly skilled professionals who are in demand, so it’s important to offer them remuneration commensurate with their skills and experience.
As professional interim recruiters, the team at Procurement Heads can best advise on the daily rate your organisation will need to offer to entice the best talent.
Highlight your company’s unique opportunities and challenges:
Another way to attract talented procurement and supply chain interims is to highlight the unique opportunities and challenges that your organisation presents.
Interims are often looking for new opportunities that will allow them to showcase their skills and expertise and are adept at parachuting into organisations.
If your organisation is facing new challenges, be that a target operating model change, supplier relationship management or general supply chain issues, interims may see these as a great opportunity to prove their worth and make a meaningful impact.
Establish a strong reputation for working with interims:
Finally, one of the most effective ways to attract talented procurement and supply chain interims is to establish a strong reputation in the area.
Interims are often looking for organisations that value their skills and expertise, and that are committed to providing a supportive and productive work environment.
If your organisation has a strong reputation for working with interims, it will be easier to attract the best talent.
Attracting talented procurement and supply chain interims is essential for any organisation looking to fill a temporary gap.
