In our most recent Quarterly Market Update on the employment market for procurement professionals we reported on a skills shortage in spend management  which has been created by the recent growth in the sector.

We mentioned the various factors creating inflationary pressures on salaries and offered some potential solutions for companies seeking to hire the talent they need in a very competitive market. The full report is available here whilst subsequent editions of our quarterly reports can be accessed here.

Unfortunately one fact is unavoidable, salaries are rising at pace and this is making it harder to afford quality people within existing salary bands.

Most salary data provided to HR departments is 6-12 months out of date and is too general to be accurate for a specific niche like procurement technology.

Given our specialism in this area we have access to a great deal of market data and have recently analysed how remuneration packages are growing at the various different levels from Directors down to graduates with two years experience.

If your business needs to benchmark its salary and benefits packages with direct competitors from the industry, we can provide a bespoke report tailored to your specific grades within a week.  Please contact Andrew Daley if you require more details.
