What are the attributes of top talent within procurement?
Are there any common themes among successful leaders?
Where should I focus to ensure my career continues to progress?
These are but a few of the many questions you’ll have asked at different stages in your career. But I’d like to make the assumption that a focus on personal development is the area that suffers above all else. Workload, pressures of a role, delivery objectives and even personal life challenges means we are constantly investing in the here and now, and not on our longer-term aspirations.
Personal development is a topic we are enormously passionate about at Michael Page. Not just for our own employees, but also through the conversations we have with candidates and clients every day. A lack of development is often cited as a main reason to change roles, with development and progression opportunities both being a compelling sell for a new employer.
