Windcat Workboats

Create a process to ensure that suppliers meet the standards expected by the company

Supplier Management Process in the Renewables Industry

As a responsible operator, Windcat Workboats set high standards for our performance, and likewise these high standards are expected by our clients. We have a responsibility to ensure that our suppliers are also meeting these standards, both in terms of their operations but also their corporate social responsibility. The aim of the project is to implement an effective process to verify new suppliers and monitor current suppliers to ensure that they can meet the standards we expect, and the standard expected by our clients. This will include corporate, legal, QHSE and HR elements.

During the project, you will review the current procedure, work with the supplier database and software, liaise with internal stakeholders and suppliers, and develop the supplier management database. The key outcome will be an effective process to manage supplier verification and performance, ideally with progress made on the database and with a number of key suppliers reviewed and approved. You will also write a report detailing your methods and findings.
