WE ACT AS AN AMBASSADOR FOR YOUR BUSINESS
Collaborating with LV over a long period, we’ve acted as an extension to their internal Resourcing team to generate the best Procurement talent in the market.
With a deep understanding of their values-based culture and an in-depth knowledge of their needs, Procurement Heads was able to support on a Procurement Transformation but also in pipelining ad-hoc specialists.
We’re delighted to act as ambassadors and support a market leading team of experts.
Roles recruited include Heads of Category, Senior Category & Category Managers and Sourcing Managers.
Based on a number of years of partnership with Rupert and the Procurement Heads team, they continuously demonstrate an excellent understanding of both our employer and potential employee needs. They fundamentally understand our business and what makes us different as an employer, therefore truly representing our employer brand within the Procurement market.
A CONSULTATIVE APPROACH SETS US APART
We were given the opportunity to present our unique offering to the Virgin Atlantic Procurement senior leadership team, positioning ourselves as much more than just a specialist recruitment business. They subsequently attended our Leadership Event, enabling us to further understand the organisational culture, team characteristics and their expectations.
This enabled us to successfully source and place a new Head of IT Category Procurement and multiple Category Managers across the wider Procurement Team.
Procurement Heads has provided great support to Virgin Atlantic in recruiting high calibre Procurement talent into the business in an efficient way. Their collaborative, consultative and engaging approach sets them apart from other recruitment agencies and we have very much enjoyed working with them.

Having worked with Procurement Heads on a number of roles, I have found the team very professional and a pleasure to deal with. Procurement Heads not only listen to the brief based on experience and qualifications, but also listen to the brief on personality and company culture.
Within the Procurement market finding the right calibre candidate is important and can at times be difficult, Procurement heads candidate pool and vetting process means as a hiring manager I only have to interview candidates that I know will be a good fit for the business and the team dynamic, I will certainly continue to use Procurement Head for future vacancies within my team.
Procurement Heads have worked successfully with Elekta to support our growth through providing the right skills and experience for both our manufacturing and Indirect needs.
Identifying strong talent to dial move your organisation is a challenging task. I like Procurement Heads approach; they take the time to get a detailed brief and then re-test that with you. I’m the first to issue a stern rebuke when I’m not happy with the service I receive. In the same vein if I’m happy I’m keen to dish out the compliments! So, my two hires from Procurement Heads have been really great recruits and work very well together. Procurement Heads has become a trusted source for generating the requisite talent for my team and I highly recommend them.
Procurement Heads has supported NATS for many years, developed a long term relationship with us and has consistently provided sound advice and excellent candidates. NATS operates a rigorous recruitment process and Procurement Heads ensure the candidates are prepared and managed through the activity to its conclusion, including ensuring that the candidates settle into their new role. We value the approach Procurement Heads take and are confident that they are able to fulfil our recruitment needs.
Having struggled to recruit the talent we need we've tried to work with a number of recruitment agents, from the largest multi-nationals to boutique specialists. Procurement Heads has been disproportionately successful in finding us candidates, at all levels, and across all categories. The fact that they specialise in procurement and in this geographic area translates to a level of understanding, focus and engagement that makes a real difference. My leadership team and I recognise them as experts above their peers both for their success in helping us find the talent we need and the advice on how to better attract candidates and where we are positioned vs other large organisations in the catchment area.
Procurement Heads has been a great support in helping Arcadia Group find Procurement talent to join the organisation. They operate in a very personable, consultative and proficient manner when recruiting. I would highly recommend them as a recruiter of choice for any business looking for a specialist Procurement recruitment business.
WE UNDERSTAND THE NEEDS OF OUR CLIENTS
By the time we came to support Old Mutual in building capability across their Procurement function, Procurement Heads already had an intimate knowledge of the individuals, team and culture, built up over many years.
By hosting leadership forums, attending networking events and through meeting the procurement team to understand their future needs, we were well placed to deliver the requisite talent when needed.
In partnering with Old Mutual’s Recruitment team, we were able to design a robust process that supported the business.
The service that we have received from Procurement Heads has been excellent. The team at PH take the time and effort to really understand our requirements and the type of person that we are looking for. The PH team is very well networked and the candidates that we receive from PH are invariably of high quality.
