As you prepare to enter a new trading year and the competition to secure the best candidates to fill vacant Chief Procurement Officer roles increases, it’s essential for procurement recruitment campaigns to be not only pro-active, but also imaginative. This much sought after fresh talent is crucial to ensure the sustained growth and profitability of the current economic upswing in the global markets.
When approached by a client, Bis Henderson recruitment consultants will draw up a resourcing strategy that is finely-tuned to target and attract candidates with the desired skills, experience level and personality profile. Constant research is required to keep pace with current hiring trends with an innovative approach that will reach the right CPOs needed to fill vital positions within the supply chain and logistics operation.
Both digital and print advertising should contain a strong corporate brand identity, attracting applicants who may not have been actively seeking a career move.

BiS Henderson’s recruitment team will identify candidates within the talent pool who show the potential to hold a strategic role in the future direction and growth of the client’s company.
