About The Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply

The Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply (CIPS) are the largest professional body in the world for procurement and supply management, with a global community of 200,000 members across 180 countries. These include senior business people, leading academics and civil servants. CIPS promote and develop high standards of professional skill, ability and integrity among all those responsible for purchasing and supply chain management within their organisations.

All employees have personal qualities and behaviour standards embedded in their job descriptions and are expected to meet these core values of the organisation. They place special emphasis on honest and open communications and these core values were developed by the whole workforce at a strategy day, encouraging better engagement and commitment to the vision.

The company runs an established community fund that holds an annual budget for helping others. Charitable projects include activities such as a marathon, providing a machine for a local hospital and an Easter egg hunt with a local school, as well as an international project in conjunction with their African office to provide shoes for local school children.
