Public Procurement and Property

A great year for Procurement People of Tomorrow

January 26, 2018 by No Comments | Category Procurement People of Tomorrow

2017 was a great year for Procurement People of Tomorrow (PPoT). We’re really proud of all we achieved:

  • National public sector survey – we contacted all public sector bodies in Scotland to find out how many new entrants there are in public sector procurement and received over 100 responses.
  • We established the PPoT Working Group. It’s made up of ex and current Modern Apprentices and graduates to continue the work of PPoT – promoting procurement as a career choice and supporting new entrants across the public and private sectors.
  • We had our own stand at Procurex 2017 and even hosted a breakout session to discuss how to retain talent and network with peers.

What’s in store for 2018?

We’ve got loads of exciting work planned for the coming year, including:

  • Creating a procurement school and career advisors pack
  • Building a PPoT website
  • More engagement with the private sector
  • More peer networking
  • Promotion of procurement graduate and Modern Apprenticeship schemes

What is PPoT?

It’s a Scotland-wide partnership programme involving both the public and private sector. We aim to create and retain our future procurement and commercial talent.
