The Art Of Procurement Interviews – Andrew Daley On Recruitment & Career Development

The Art Of Procurement Interviews – Andrew Daley On Recruitment & Career Development

Andrew Daley was invited by Philip Ideson from the excellent Art Of Procurement podcast to discuss two of his favourite topics, Talent Attraction and Career Development, both of which should be of interest to the modern Procurement or Spend Management professional.

The Rules Of Talent Attraction should be of particular interest to any hiring manager who is focused on recruiting the best people they can find into their team.  It covers key areas like recruitment processes designed to attract as well as assess strong candidates, the supply and demand of various core procurement skills and how to avoid some common recruitment mistakes.

The Strategies & Tactics You Need To Secure Your Dream Procurement Job is geared towards the procurement professionals personal career objectives.  Philip and Andrew discuss the importance of networking, how you present yourself to the external job market and what skills you will need to develop to progress your career.

Both interviews have been very well received by the audience and have resulted in some excellent feedback.

If you would like to discuss any of the issues raised in either interview, please get in touch directly with Andrew via andrew@edburydaley.com
