Our client, a leading Irish brand, retained Alternatives Elect to market map the nascent world of Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) in order to scope out a new role in their Procurement division. The Chief Procurement Officer had been doing the role as part of his responsibilities and wanted to understand whether the role existed, in the format he envisaged, in other organisations, and at what cost.

Alternatives Elect mapped 49 professionals across 9 industries, and gave the client a recommended salary for the new positon. This information assisted the firm with benchmarking the role and positioning it correctly within its own organisation structure.
