About the Organisation
We believe Procurement can be a key enabler to the success of organisations and offers an amazing range of career opportunities for individuals.
We offer Procurement and Supplier Management consulting and experiential learning to organisations, to help optimise value and establish high performing teams.
Our unique gamified events, training programme and coaching packages are designed to enable individuals and teams to build key commercial skills and boost emerging talent.
As an experienced IT and Procurement leader, I’m passionate about the wide range of opportunities these professions can offer young people. Working in collaboration with leading recruiters and educational institutions, we want to highlight pathways for these professions and help build a talent pipeline for the future.
I have created a series of FREE fun challenges and lesson plans, which S1 and S2 students can complete to introduce them to different aspects of Procurement and Technology; whilst supporting education Curriculum for Excellence competencies and benchmarks such as numeracy, literacy and health and wellbeing.
There is no requirement for pre-existing knowledge or experience, as the challenges aim build foundational skills and become increasing complex as students develop.
Built around social issues that matter to young people such as climate change, the challenges also aim to help participants develop core competencies for the workplace e.g. creativity, problem solving, planning, teamwork and communication. The lesson plans highlight how student experience in using these skills during the challenges can provide helpful examples for competency-based interviews.
Working in collaboration with leading recruitment agencies and education institutions, we share insight on the range of roles in the marketplace, CV and interview hints and tips, and options for higher/further education.
