Why Procurement?

To succeed in business you need to hone skills such as negotiation, analysis, presentation skills, time and people management. QinetiQ Procurement will give great exposure and enhance your skills in all of these areas and more, as you strategically source goods and services that support the wider QinetiQ business in carrying out their objectives.

In order to achieve these objectives you will need to work collaboratively with key stakeholders and technical experts around the business, to provide value for money while reducing supply chain risk. You will do this through leveraging relationships, developing market knowledge and exercising advanced negotiation techniques. To support you in achieving these objectives, QinetiQ offers a wide range of classroom based training opportunities including negotiation, presentation, robust conversations, bid writing and many more; however the vast majority of the training will be on-the-job as you get involved in a variety of projects, with support from the team.

The QinetiQ Procurement department is made up of three teams; Category Management, Bidding and Programmes, and Operational Excellence; each of which provide a different insight and approach to Procurement. The QinetiQ Procurement Year in Industry Scheme offers the opportunity to engage with all three teams; allowing you to build a dynamic and solid business background, develop transferrable skills and work with key people across all levels of the organisation. You will experience new and exciting challenges every day and will be involved in an unparalleled variety of projects.
