Helen Harling

Marketing & Events Manager

Managing Marketing & Events - working alongside Caroline Clarke as the Procurement Heads Marketing team.

After graduating from the University of the West of England with a degree in Marketing, I accepted a Marketing Manager position with a large sports company. Part of my role included managing sponsored runs with various different brands, which I really enjoyed – and this is when I realised that managing events is a real passion of mine. After a year with the company, I began looking for new opportunities and to gain further experience within a different industry, and it was then that I was contacted by Procurement Heads Director Rupert Gaster, and my journey with the team began!

As Marketing and Events Manager, a large part of my role is the management of our events programme – both business and charity, which I love. We’re lucky enough to have a great relationship with our official charity partner, Macmillan Cancer Support, and to organise these fun events while raising money for such an important charity is a real enjoyment. There are two of us in the Marketing team at Procurement Heads myself and Caroline Clarke and our main objective is to be the Best Procurement Recruitment Agency across London and the Home Counties and bring the company to market in an innovative way.

In my spare time I love keeping fit – running, swimming and going to the gym, as well as spending time with my friends and family. In September 2017 I took 6 months off to travel South America, America and Australia which was fantastic, but I’m pleased to be back with the Procurement Heads team and look forward to a busy and exciting year ahead!
