Looking to enter the world of Interim Purchasing…

It is a fairly bold move to decide you are looking to quit the world of permanent employment and become self employed, but for many, although it can have its ups and downs, the world of interim can offer variety, flexibility and in some cases a better work life balance. I have helped to support many on this journey and I am pleased to be working with my latest recruit whom I met last week.

A Graduate, CIPS Level 4, prior to his career in purchasing he worked successfully in project management related roles. His career in purchasing was an internal move within a business, but he quickly progressed and eventually became solely responsible for indirect procurement. Following a series of three redundancies in this business, he decided it was time to move on and he went to work for a business who offered him training (particularly around legal terminology and terms and conditions) and a true structure to put procurement into place. Since this time, he has gone on to develop his Procurement experience and is now looking for his first interim assignment.

Here are some of his key skills:

Management and leadership of small teams

Indirect Procurement categories include: FM, PPE and Workwear, Office Services, Print Services, Fleet, HR and Recruitment, Waste and Recycling, Health and Safety

Contract Management and savings achieved. More recently £300k to bottom line on Waste Contract.
