Data For Q1 2013

As regular followers of our Procurement Quarterly Market Update will know, we take great interest in the trends we observe in the employment market for procurement professionals.

Our readers appreciate the insight we offer whether they be job seekers or hiring managers.

Much of our work is focussed on the services sector where indirect spend dominates the agenda, and this gives us a unique insight into this area of the market.

Given the interest now generated by the update, we felt that it would be beneficial to measure and track demand for the key indirect spend categories where our network and expertise are strongest. If you are a hiring manager this information will indicate the degree of competition you will face for the skills you require.  For job seekers the data will help you assess current demand for your category expertise.

Since the beginning of 2013 we have measured the number of vacancies in each key area of indirect spend by collating data from three key sources: our own assignments, competitor analysis and software which analyses online advertising which gives an accurate snapshot of the current market trends.
