Procurement People of Tomorrow programme (PPoT)

A public sector led programme to address the skills gap in procurement and highlight the challenges in attracting, recruiting and retaining talent.


Procurement People of Tomorrow (PPoT) is a Scotland-wide partnership programme, involving both the public and private sector, that aims to create our ‘future’ procurement and commercial talent. Our vision is to leave a sustainable legacy for the procurement profession in Scotland by growing our own talent to address industry-wide skills shortages. Watch the video.

PPoT was launched in 2012 and has moved from strength to strength as it’s delivered awareness to young people, opportunities to future procurement people and support to those looking to invest in procurement talent. 

We have split our offerings into two elements: 

  • beginning a career in procurement
  • recruiting a new procurement professional

We would encourage you to engage with the resources in the elements which relate to your interest and if you have any further queries then please feel free to contact us.
