Attracting top procurement talent to your business can be a challenge, especially in the competitive job market of the UK. However, there are certain strategies that can help you attract the best candidates to your procurement team. In this blog, we'll explore some of the best ways to attract procurement talent to your business.

Build a strong employer brand
Your employer brand is how your company is perceived by potential candidates, and it's important to make sure it's strong and positive. Make sure your company's values, mission, and culture are clearly communicated and attractive to potential employees. Use social media, company websites, and other online platforms to showcase your company culture and values. Highlight any awards or recognition your company has received, as well as any benefits and perks that come with working for your company.

Offer competitive compensation packages
In order to attract the best talent, you need to offer competitive compensation packages. This includes salary, bonuses, and benefits such as health insurance, pensions schemes, and flexible hours/hybrid working. Make sure your compensation package is in line with industry standards, and be willing to negotiate with candidates to ensure they feel valued and appreciated.

Invest in training and development
Procurement professionals want to work for companies that invest in their employees' training and development. Offering ongoing training and professional development opportunities not only benefits your employees but also helps your company stay competitive and up-to-date with industry trends and best practices.

Encourage employee advocacy
Your current employees can be your biggest advocates for attracting new talent to your business. Encourage them to share their positive experiences working for your company on social media, industry forums, and other relevant platforms. Provide them with opportunities to participate in professional development programs and attend industry events, and recognise and reward their contributions to the team. By fostering a positive work environment and encouraging employee advocacy, you can attract top procurement talent who are attracted to your company culture and values.

Work with a specialist recruitment agency
