Work experience

Senior Consultant

New Chapter

May 2013 - Present | Leeds, United Kingdom

After a successful first year with New Chapter my goal is to further develop our Procurement and Supply Chain offering within the Food and Drink Sector.

We have successfully delivered a number of mid to senior level assignments, including implementing large parts of a new procurement team for a market leader in global bakery. We are now looking forward to widening our client base in order to deliver a far more comprehensive recruitment service than the sector is receiving from elsewhere.

Internally my remit is to grow and develop team members further with a view to overall team growth through the coming months.

We are now growing the team in order to allow organisations to work hand in glove with a individual recruiter covering specific skill sets.

Moving forwards I will be covering Procurement related assignments across FMCG. Supply Chain & Logistics will be covered my colleague Matthew Simkins.

New Chapter – Procurement and Supply Chain are committed to providing a service that aligns with our company values; http://www.newchapter.co.uk/about-us/mission-vision-and-values/
