It’s been estimated that global trade in goods and services will rise more than threefold to $27 trillion by 2030 (The World Bank, 2007) thereby increasing, exponentially, the demands for skills and technological advancement in procurement and supply chain management. Today’s supply chains are characterized by complexity, unpredictability and disruption; the mobilization of products and services across multiple countries has altered the whole supplier to customer environment. From political unrest in the Middle East, the impact of natural disasters across the world, to the fallout from Brexit – there are challenges from every direction. The industry is expanding faster than the workforce is becoming qualified and it’s a problem across all sectors.
What are the critical areas of impact on the recruitment landscape?
We bring a broad talent perspective that helps narrow the skill gap.
As supply chain and procurement become increasingly automated and digitally enhanced it’s easy to forget the fundamentals – without people and processes you won’t get results. At Douglas Stuart we’re already finding solutions to some of these challenges with our clients, leveraging our industry knowledge, networks, links to education, training centres and global reach.
