Hayley Packham

Operations Director

I pride myself on building personal relationships based on integrity and trust. Over the past nine years, I have built a strong network and consider myself well regarded in the market.

My move to Procurement Heads has been inspired by a desire to work for an agile organisation and one that shares the same core values as myself. I am Operations Director at Procurement Heads and recruit senior Procurement professionals.

Typical roles I recruit include; Heads of Procurement and Procurement Directors, Category Leads and Managers and Senior Category Managers.

After graduating with a BA (Hons) in French and Spanish with Linguistics from the University of Brighton, I worked as a Retail Operations Manager for a leading card and gift retailer. From there I helped set up and operationally run a new business within the same industry. In 2011, I joined a FTSE 250 recruitment organisation and for the past seven years, have specialised in the industrial market.

On a more personal note, I am a mother to Dexter who keeps me on my toes, and my husband and I are avid Manchester United supporters. We make the pilgrimage to Old Trafford as often as we can for our sins!
