Incorporatewear the UK’s premier corporate clothing supplier is pleased to announce that Alison Kirk has become a member of the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply.
Alison, a supply chain manager, studied in her spare time for nearly three years to gain the UK’s top professional qualification in procurement.
Now, after a gruelling three-stage assessment process and final exam, she is a fully-fledged member of CIPS.
Her success strengthens Incorporatewear’s procurement team, which sources clothing worldwide to supply the corporate wardrobes of many of Britain’s biggest companies, including, Virgin Atlantic, Nationwide Building Society & Premier Inn.
“I am absolutely delighted,” said Alison, who will officially graduate in July at Birmingham’s Symphony Hall. “I’ve had to put in a huge amount of effort to develop the skills and knowledge necessary to become a recognised procurement professional. It has been a massive challenge while working full time and looking after my young family.
“But it has been absolutely worthwhile. I have learnt so much that I can put into my work at Incorporatewear. For our clients, my qualification shows we are using best practice when sourcing and managing our supply chain. It gives me access to the latest news and techniques in our profession from around the world, so I can contribute to keeping Incorporatewear at the forefront of supply chain innovation.”
