The start of 2021 has felt like an extension of 2020 with organisations now looking to implement their realisation that Supply Chains need to be transformed whether in technology, location or talent.
The first few months of the year have seen positions previously on hold come back onto the market as well as companies looking at talent in locations they had previously not considered. Clients have also looked at the rigidity of previous structures and realised the importance of agility. The year is going to be dominated by organisations looking for talent in areas of skills shortage; Digital, Sustainability and Ecommerce being at a premium.
Candidates with experience in setting up these strategies can successfully connect all areas of the supply chain to give the customers what they expect; speed, reliability and sustainable products. This is going to put an emphasis on companies upskilling their existing workforce in new technologies and ways of thinking but will also need to realize that external talent will come with a premium and will be looked after.
