My move to Procurement Heads has been inspired by a desire to source talent for local businesses in an honest and consultative way and to help further build this unique brand through the development of an existing network.

I specialise in recruiting Category Manager, Senior Procurement Manager, Head of Procurement and Procurement Director roles across Surrey & Sussex for a range of leading brands.

After graduating from Loughborough University in 2009 with a degree in Sports Science and English I fell into the recruitment industry. It’s fair to say I have never looked back. During the first four years of my career I successfully developed the procurement market for a niche, London based recruitment business. I then joined Coca Cola Enterprises as Recruitment Manager with responsibility for Procurement and Supply Chain across Great Britain, honing my experience in the market and working closely with stakeholder groups to really understand the challenges and support required to find genuine talent in the external market.

Outside of work I am a sports enthusiast and play and watch as much football as I can! I am a big Newcastle United fan for my sins which proves that I am addicted to the highs and lows that recruitment can throw at you.
