Aimed at personnel new to purchasing or with limited experience, this course enables them to hit the ground running and make an immediate contribution. The course equips attendees with the fundamental skills and knowledge to transform them from simply being order placers into more professional and productive members of the purchasing team.
Attendees will gain an understanding of the contribution professional purchasing can make to an organisation. They will learn how to manage the enquiry process, negotiate prices, terms and conditions and make robust agreements with their suppliers. The importance of professional conduct in commercial relationships and the necessity of compliance with efficient procurement processes are also emphasised.
