Having worked for several years at a leading FTSE 250 recruitment business, my move to Procurement Heads was borne from the desire to work for a consultative organisation with agility at its core. I lead our London practice and recruit Category Manager, Senior Procurement Manager, Head of Procurement and Procurement Director roles across London.
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, working first in London and later Southampton – 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!
