About Us

We Are
Specialists

As an executive search consultancy specialising in procurement, our team help businesses to recruit outstanding leaders to seamlessly deliver their procurement and supply chain strategy.

With a network that encompasses the UK, Europe, Asia and the US, we actively seek the best talent who will deliver on their promises. Helping you build a better working relationship with your stakeholders.

Our Team

With over forty-five years of combined experience in procurement, our team understands the complexities of change that companies experience, and the skills required to implement these successfully.

We identify the precise attributes required for your business, moving away from the conventional approach to recruitment. We focus on procurement leaders with the required emotional intelligence, which is fundamental for building effective teams and multi-tiered relationships with senior stakeholders.

Our aim with each of our clients is to form a close relationship and work as an extension of your business. We spend time getting to know your organisation, how cost-effectiveness is measured, the compliance process and gain an understanding of the main drivers for procurement and finance.
