Sam Birkbeck


I specialise in sourcing and supporting Procurement Director, CPO, Head of Procurement, Category Manager and Procurement Manager roles and candidates across the Berkshire, Oxfordshire and Wiltshire area.

With over 5 years of senior recruitment experience my move to manage the Berkshire, Oxfordshire and Wiltshire practice for Procurement Heads was an easy choice. Having known the business for several years, I liked the people, and their consultative and honest approach to recruitment aligned with my personal values, so it was an obvious choice for the next step in my career.

I approach recruitment from a networking perspective and am always keen to meet to discuss candidate and business needs whether imminent or for the future.

Previous to recruitment I worked in the ski, sailing and summer holiday industries for a decade, living and working in Utah, Norway, Argentina, Canada, Colombia and France.  On my return to the UK I joined a large FTSE recruitment business for 5 years before joining Procurement Heads in 2018.  When I am not working I spend most of my time cycling, sailing and playing hockey for Winchester.
