The majority have had one or more line functions in different organizations for example as category managers, strategic sourcing managers, supply chain managers and procurement managers. Some of them also have a management consulting background. This makes them capable of quickly understanding the client’s operation and start working right away.

We have all types of procurement consultants and specialists, and we can deploy them quickly. And if you will need to recruit, we can also offer you our recruiting services.

Where do you provide procurement consultants?

We offer consultants all over the country, even in places where the appropriate expertise is perhaps unavailable at the moment. We have a good level of geographical flexibility thanks to our extensive network of consultants across Sweden. Our consultants are very mobile and can travel if necessary, but we also use modern working methods and have physical offices in Sundbyberg/Stockholm as well as Gothenburg and Malmö, which enables effective work from a distance no matter where you are.

What type of consultants do you have?

We have everything from generalist consultants within procurement or supply chain to specialists within different areas such as IT, constrution or public procurement to name a few.

A typical EFFSO consultant is a pleasant, sociable and down to earth person who is flexible in his or her approach and at the same time clear in their communication. Our consultants are confident in their role and they love taking on new challenges with our clients.

How quickly can you get me a procurement consultant?

We always have a number of consultants on hand. We have had cases where the consultant has started work directly after the initial conversation with the client.

How much does a procurement consultant cost?

We charge by the hour, and the fee varies depending on the experience and expertise of the consultant.

Do you have different types of procurement specialists?

We have specialists with deep knowledge in certain areas (IT, public procurement, construction etc) as well as generalists with broad knowledge who can take on several different areas within a single assignment.

Can I bring in a procurement executive?

Yes you can, both full-time and part-time.

EFFSO has managed to find several assignments for me within IT procurement in really interesting companies. All assignments have been very interesting and many have also been extended several times. EFFSO regularly invites its consultants to interesting seminars, training courses and social events which I appreciate a lot.
