2016 Supply Chain Salary & Benefits Guide

Darragh McCarthy 12.01.2016

A look at the salary and benefits ranges for professionals working within supply chain in Ireland in 2016.

Increased production stimulating demand for talent

Morgan McKinley recruits into the full spectrum of supply chain roles from planning through sourcing, manufacturing, warehousing and delivery. We have seen growth in all of these areas with an uplift in demand for people who offer industry-specific experience especially within the food, pharmaceuticals and medical devices sectors. In addition there has been significant growth in FMCG, electronics and IT recently, especially in markets outside Dublin. Ireland’s Purchasing Management Index (PMI), one of the most important indicators of levels of production, increased 31 months in a row to the end of 2015 and this production activity must be supported by an increase in the supply chain workforce.

Recent foreign direct investment (FDI) inversion deals have further increased demand. There exists a considerable talent pool but the challenge is to identify suitable professionals looking for their next career move.

The demand for talent in 2015 engendered more flexibility among hiring organisations.  Pharmaceutical companies have become willing to consider candidates from the food sector, where margins are much lower, as a way to leverage their experience of a leaner supply chain. 

The demand for professionals who have experience of one of the major ERP supply chain software suites (SAP, Oracle and JD Edwards), in particular S&OP continued a trend identified in previous years.

Mid-level managers are in high demand and as a result competition is intense for this talent. Direct procurement experts in particular play an increasingly strategic role and most organisations have retention strategies in place.  Indirect procurement specialists (category managers who are responsible for services and ancillary materials such as packaging) are a little more mobile and their skills more transferable between sectors.

While salaries are not moving significantly within organisations, we have seen a moderate uplift from businesses looking to secure specific talent.
