What’s it like being our client?
They act as an ambassador for your business
“Procurement Heads reached out to understand Shawbrook’s procurement challenges and it was clear that they had an extensive network and knowledge of the market. After sourcing several quality candidates, I was able to recruit the new team and we are now starting to deliver some positive results to the bank.
As we roll out the new category management approach, we have some exciting projects in the pipeline to support the business strategy and to deliver some really good savings”
Jonathan Hughes, Head of Procurement & Estate, Shawbrook Bank
A consultative approach sets them apart

They understand our requirements
“Procurement Heads was instrumental in the building of Liverpool Victoria Financial Services’ Third-Party Management function. Building the whole function from scratch was no mean feat, particularly with the changing financial regulations, difficult location to recruit for and the evolving identity of LVFS.
From the initial meeting to the final placement, Procurement Heads managed the project with consummate professionalism, and I would have no hesitation recommending their retained, multi-role approach to anyone else looking to build a high-calibre team quickly.”
Vernon Smith, Third Party Management Director (CPO), Liverpool Victoria Financial Services
They tailor solutions to meet your needs

What we value most about their approach is clear and responsive communication and the focus applied to listening to our needs and requirements, to ensure they find the best possible fit for the role and our organisation.
I would not hesitate to recommend Procurement Heads to other organisations and would be happy to continue to work with them in the future.”
