James Dobbin

Head of Practice - Financial & Professional Services

Having worked for several years at a leading FTSE 250 recruitment business, my move to Procurement Heads was born from the desire to work for a consultative organisation with agility at its core. I recruit Category Managers / Leads, Procurement Managers, Heads of Procurement, Procurement Directors and Chief Procurement Officers.

After returning to England from the USA – where I was fortunate to attend university on a football (soccer) scholarship – I secured a job in the creative department of a small marketing agency. My role evolved quickly, and I soon began attending various trade shows and networking events; it was there I stumbled upon my passion for building relationships and selling. The rest, they say, is history: I fell into the recruitment industry – it was the best decision I’ve ever made.

Outside of work, I am a keen sportsman and fitness enthusiast, and still play as much football as a can – although it’s safe to say the standard has dropped significantly!
