HR consulting for your purchasing department




Purchasing is a key factor for the competitiveness of your company. We know from more than 20 years of experience in personnel consulting: In order for the purchasing department to be truly successful, qualified professionals and managers are required, for whom, on the one hand, cost reduction and efficiency are an essential part of the work. On the other hand, purchasing specialists must be able to cope with the current challenges. Technological leaps and a rapidly developing economic environment mean a changed range of tasks, especially in purchasing and logistics.

Our recruitment services for purchasing offers SMEs, listed companies and public companies comprehensive advice and support for the challenges ahead – whether by coping with supplier shortages or availability problems due to the energy crisis, by preventing a shortage of skilled workers or by switching to a digitised purchasing. We support you in adapting your purchasing and procurement departments to changing conditions. This also means finding new ways of elaborating contracts together with you. Thus, we place purchasing specialists in permanent employment and also offer temporary project support by qualified temporary staff or experienced freelancers.
