Video – The Procurement & Spend Management Insider – Autumn 2021

See the newest video below from Andrew Daley about what to expect in our latest Insider report, which will be released any day now.

We’ve been recruiting since the mid 1990s and none of us have experienced a recruitment market quite like what we’ve seen so far in 2021. Demand for experienced staff across the European digital procurement ecosystem is remarkably high and growing rapidly, with permanent appointments up 134% (source: APSCo). In this report, we look at some of the factors fuelling this.

In procurement technology, there have been too many moves to list so we’ve focused on those we feel have real strategic importance for the sector. We also look at why there have been winners and losers and as we enter the final quarter of 2021, we identify what we are currently seeing in the sector. We would like to thank Jaggaer and Tealbook for their valuable contributions.

In this edition, we introduce our new section dedicated to ESG and sustainability to give some focus to this growing niche. We also review the corporate market and explain how this is bucking the trend.

There is no doubt that the conditions facing the sector are really challenging those companies serious about hiring great talent and we share out thoughts about how to best land your key hire.

The inside track on the big moves, hiring and technology trends, the rise of supply chain risk and sustainability and much more

Specialist Procurement Technology Recruitment company Edbury Daley has just published the latest edition of The Procurement & Spend Management Insider.

In this edition of the widely respected report, in addition to industry insights on merger and acquisition activity and key leaders moving companies and their thoughts and views, they also look at the changing demands faced by procurement solutions providers. With Covid still presenting a challenge, they review major events and how the Procurement Technology software and consulting sector has responded in the past six months. To this end, they have valuable contributions from Ivalua, Rosslyn Analytics, SAP Ariba & Fieldglass, Olivehorse, Barclaycard and C2FO to name a few.

The authors and their contributors explore the dominant trends including supply chain risk, visibility, and resilience alongside the growing importance of Environmental Social Governance (ESG), the value of data and the marriage of technology with people.

Andrew Daley, one of the authors and a founding Director of Edbury Daley told us “We’ve been writing the P&SM Insider Report for several years now and I must say I am really proud of this particular edition.  If you are interested in what’s going on in the digital procurement market, whether it be high profile moves, hiring trends, supply & demand of key skills then our report covers it all.  However, what I am really pleased about this time is the input from a series of respected voices across the European procurement tech sector. The likes of Deloitte do a great job of surveying the international CPO community, whilst our friends at Spend Matters offer wonderful analysis of the solutions available to  Procurement & Supply Chain leaders, but this edition of our report surveys leaders from eight important vendors in the market offering a unique perspective of the trends in the procurement tech market.  So my heartfelt thanks go to all the valuable contributions from respected leaders at SAP Ariba, Ivalua, HICX, Barclaycard B2B, Rosslyn Data Technologies, C2FO, Claritum, and Circulor.”

“Furthermore, it’s great to be able to report that our market is alive and well, hiring activity is up, vendors and consultants are feeling positive about 2021 and that is something to celebrate after what we have all been through in recent months, so please enjoy reading more positive news and feel free to have your say on social media.”
