Studies maintain high standards
Infotec's Assistant Buyer has gained a Level 4 Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (CIPS) qualification
Congratulations to Infotec’s Assistant Buyer Georgie Charteris who has proved she is making great progress in her career development by passing her Level 4 Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (CIPS) qualification.
Five main areas were covered by the work, with Georgie facing an exam in each. They included managing contracts and relationships, sourcing and negotiating and contracting, each in relation to procurement and supply.
Georgie, 20, says she is using what she has learned to help her in her day-to-day work, adding: “Studying with other procurement professionals at Derby University has also helped me see how other businesses work and how procurement affects every function and aspect of a business.
“CIPS has been extremely beneficial to me in my progression from administration into the beginning of my career as a buyer in terms of widening my knowledge, and learning best practice in procurement. I am now studying CIPS Level 5 and plan to go on to study Level 6.”
Congratulating Georgie, Infotec’s Operations Director Lizz Court said: “Georgie has worked hard to achieve this qualification and we are delighted with her success. Helping our staff to improve their skills and broaden their experience is very important to us and helps the company to maintain the high standards for which it is recognised.”
