We’ve seen a strong, sustained recovery in activity levels across many industries and verticals in the private sector, with some, including life sciences and engineering, taking particular precedence.  

The pandemic has caused many research and development programs to be fast-tracked, creating an influx of capital into life sciences, while engineering continues to play a vital role in supporting the nation’s growth plan. If both these sectors are to continue to flourish, mitigating risk in supply chains is crucial, meaning organizations are willing to pay more for the right procurement professionals. 

Recent challenges have highlighted the importance of soft skills in procurement, which are crucial to professional success in the face of new challenges. The strong emphasis placed on negotiation by the private sector is linked not only to the importance of getting the best price, but also better value from a partnership.  

Procurement professionals are seen as vital to the building of more strategic, long-term relationships in order to create the best value from a contract - whether this takes the form of an improved social profile or a better commercial deal.  

Additionally, communication skills continue to take precedence across all sectors, but particularly in the public sector, where a continued preference for remote and hybrid working practices requires an adeptness at tailoring communication – and the message being presented – for a range of stakeholders across a multitude of platforms.
