“Most purchasing professionals who come to us are looking for career development and the organisations we deal with are looking to improve purchasing & supply in their business. We are delighted to recommend Boulsworth Services, a leading provider of CIPS training, as an option to help them achieve this,” commented John Clark, Managing Partner of threesixty selection.

Boulsworth have established Study Centres along the M62 corridor offering CIPS training in a number of flexible formats; including workshops, via day-release and distance-learning. They also offer on-site programs at companies own premises, meaning staff spend less time away from the business while gaining the skills and development they need.
“We have been looking to work with a CIPS training partner for some time,” said John. “’Boulsworth really stand out because they are all experienced purchasing professionals from a variety of sectors. When they are not training they are delivering purchasing consultancy, so not only have they been there and done it, they are still out there doing it.”
“Bought-in goods & services can account for over 50% of cost of sales with over 90% of buyers having no formal training,” said Dominic Lee, Director of Boulsworth Services. “So this is an area where having the right staff in place and providing investment in their professional development has a direct impact on bottom line performance.”
“Over 50% of advertised purchasing jobs specify a CIPS qualification as a requirement,” said John. “The enhanced performance of CIPS qualified staff persuades their employers to pay them on average 20% more, which has a significant impact over the course of a career. That is why we recommend that all the purchasing professionals who come to us for career advice go down this route.”
