Our goal is to act as an ambassador for the teams and individuals we support.

The Sustainable Procurement Pledge (SPP) is a pro-bono community of people committed to embedding sustainability into their procurement practices – and sharing the knowledge and tools of how to do so.

At Procurement Heads, we are proud to partner with the Sustainable Procurement Pledge and all of the team act as Ambassadors for the organisation.

At Procurement Heads, Equality, Diversity & Inclusion is one of our core business pillars. We firmly believe in equality for all and have pledged to continue attracting a workforce that reflects this, not only for ourselves but for the clients and candidates we engage with.

From candidate attraction, right through to Board representation, EDI touches every part of the process and people need to feel comfortable bringing their whole selves to work knowing they will be treated equally and fairly and that their opinion matters.
