“Supply Chain now seen as a value-add function”

Supply chain recruitment in 2016 has continued to evolve and now the function is viewed as a ‘value add ’, a resource, not an overhead. This is due to the hard work applied by current supply chain professionals to engender trust and respect within their respective sectors.  This continued evolution is one of the key growth areas we anticipate in 2017.

Commentary on Supply Chain Roles and Remuneration in Ireland for 2017

As an industry, Supply Chain Ireland faces many challenges in 2017 on both the economic and political fronts. With the outcome of the US election and Brexit, the supply chain industry is gripped with uncertainty which drives hesitation and doubt. This doubt impacts the full spectrum of supply chain, from planning & sourcing, to the manufacturing and transportation of goods and services.  On the economic front, we are also seeing an increase in competition from other locations. Eastern European countries have been able to promote themselves as a low cost alternative to Ireland, having both a strong educational structure and also where many CMO operations are based. All of these are external threats to the growth of the industry.

The market has shifted dramatically in the last 12 months from a jobs focussed market to an applicant focussed market. Applicants now have a greater choice of roles and we are beginning to see candidates being offered 2 or 3 roles at a time. We are also seeing an increase in the number of counter offers. However, employers have not been able to keep pace with this change, and as such roles are going unfilled for months on end.

There is now a greater level of choice across all levels for supply chain professionals. This is one area that companies can capitalise and beat out their competition. Multinationals traditionally have longer processes and while SMEs may not be able to beat large MNC with branding and public perception, SMEs are capable of outpacing them with their processes.

From the increased visibility and accountability for supply chain has come one very welcome change. The increased reliance on supply chain roles has seen the gender balance start to shift positively towards 50/50. This is seen in the increased numbers of female graduates from supply chain related courses. While this is a good starting point, there is still a lot more work to be done in this area.

A large number of multinationals have global functions based out of Ireland, so we are seeing an increase requirement for flexibility to travel. Global mobility is now becoming the norm. We are also seeing the ability to work remotely as a selling point to attract talent allowing for a greater work / life balance.

Given the greater competition for talent, we have also seen a shift away from temporary agency contracts to fixed term contracts. Companies are seeing that a FTC is beneficial to both sides in terms of job security and also talent security. Applicants are completing risk assessment on opportunities presented to them, and FTC has a lower rating than a temping role.

A major change within the industry is the increased need for a new technical skill-set developing within supply chain. These roles, usually in vendor/supplier/CMO management, require a technical qualification relevant to the company's line of business. This is required to effectively communicate requirements from R&D/CRO to full scale production/CMOs. Supply Chain has ideally placed itself to be the bridging point between these elements and still maintain a commercial perspective.

As expected with an increased focus on hybrid skill set, we are seeing a slight shift towards “qualified by qualification”, but there still remains a very strong requirement for “qualified by experience”. In roles with a strong focus on interactions across levels, the ability to influence without authority remains one skill that cannot be developed by qualification.
