The Spend Management Sector – UK Market Skills Update

The Spend Management Sector – UK Market Skills Update

 

The UK Spend Management sector is enjoying strong market conditions with several key players experiencing significant growth.

In terms of human resource, there are a finite pool of people with experience in a rapidly growing sector.  This equation means there is a shortage of suitable talent that is only going to become more acute as the market continues to grow.

At Edbury Daley we have had a clear focus on the sector for several years now dating back to our first work with an established market leader in 2007.  Our network of contacts spans all the key players in the sector and we know where the best people are.

We also know which people might consider new roles, and which organisations are at risk of losing some of their best people due to market factors like salary increases, under investment in the product etc.

In a marketplace which is characterised by this skills shortage, growing organisations need a recruitment strategy that can help give them competitive advantage.

We strongly believe that our portfolio of services can be a major factor in delivering that competitive advantage to the companies that we work closely with.

We offer several different recruitment services for both interim and full time roles, a bespoke salary benchmarking service for the procurement technology market and an advisory service which focuses on improving talent attraction strategies.

If your business needs to address how they hire the best available people, we have the experience and market knowledge to make a difference.

Here are some examples of the appointments we’ve made so far this year in competitive market conditions:

Senior Sales Manager  – e marketplace & analytics provider

Managing Consultant, Coupa/Ariba implementations – big four Consultancy

Senior ConsultantSAP Implementation – big four Consultancy

Senior Consultant, P2P Transformation  – niche consultancy

Senior Consultant – e Sourcing suite provider

If you would like a more in depth view of the market, whether it be for a discussion about recruiting into your team or with regard to your own personal career choices, please contact Andrew Daley on 0161 924 2385.

As the global economy recovers many companies are pursuing significant growth plans. Often, the key constraining factor is the ability to hire and retain the skills and expertise needed.
