Barden Part Qualified Career Guide Blog Series...Next Up Your Position on the Supply Chain
Are you a part qualified accountant and planning your professional future? If so, then this is the perfect blog series for you. Over the next few weeks we’ll share some excellent insights from the Barden Part Qualified Career Guide, which will help you plan and navigate your professional career.
Next Up…Your Position on the Supply Chain
The Career decisions you make today WILL affect the options open to you in the future.
Position on the supply chain is a concept best illustrated with a working example.
Imagine you work in a pharmaceutical company. The like with like concept dictates that you will definitely be a good candidate for a role in another pharmaceutical company, right? Yes, but unfortunately not all the time.
The pharmaceutical industry, like many others, involves a supply chain of activity running from research and development to manufacturing, logistics, wholesale and retail.
Working in a pharmaceutical manufacturing plant is very different to working in a pharmacy, but both are within the pharmaceutical supply chain. Your position on the supply chain can be very defining.
Moving from manufacturing to retail in the same industry can be a difficult leap. In fact, it can be easier to move to a similar position in a different industry – from manufacturing in a medical device company to manufacturing in a pharmaceutical company, for example.
The closer you are on the supply chain, the more possible the move – our handy illustration (above) shows that one step in either direction is far more accessible than taking two, or more, steps in one leap.
