Procurement & Supply Chain Salary Survey for Technology Professionals

  1. 1. Technology Sector Results - 2012 Page 1 of 5 There have been a number of major changes in the world of Technology and IT services in the past couple of years during what has obviously been an extremely turbulent time for the economy. While 2011 was a step back in the right direction in terms of the volume and level of opportunity on offer 2012 has seen more challenging circumstances return. PSD has noticed the number of opportunities at the mid level (£40-70k) has remained strong while at the senior level the market has been quieter. Whilst certain clients have been adding head count over the course of the year there are organisations which have not been in a position to recruit. Another observation is that the length of time that it is taking for decisions to be made has been longer with clients being more demanding around the blend of skills required to fill positions. Many clients have undergone or continue to undergo major restructures of both their businesses and Procurement teams. Procurement recruitment has perhaps suffered more than certain areas as it is not seen as a revenue generating area in the way that certain other functions are and thus it appears that it is not always straightforward to get sign off or budget approval for these roles. Many CPO’s have commented that workloads have increased, with business heads requiring more Management Information and there has been a strong focus to ensure financial controls are tight. Despite the lower volume of opportunities there is actually a strong network of quality candidates readily available in both operational and commercial functions. We are finding that headhunting and search work is the best way to locate the most relevant candidates in the market and are completing more of this activity to meet client demands. As a result our candidate networking and relationship building is still a key focus and will become increasingly important as our clients retain and win new business. We expect hiring levels to increase throughout the year as organisations slowly recover confidence in the market and the act of spend on recruitment is approached with less caution. Salary levels have broadly remained the same and we do not expect this to change markedly in 2013. SalarySurveyResults PSD Procurement & Supply Chain Technology Sector Results

The results show that all the technology respondents live in the South and are mainly in a mid to senior procurement role. Similar to last year, the majority of Technology candidates earned £60-69,000 basic salary. We can reveal, however, that Technology respondents are found in all the senior salary bandings with the biggest population found in salaries between £60-90,000.

However, this year, we can see a considerable number of respondents who earn more, therefore we can suggest Technology respondents have a car allowance of £5-9,000.
