Happy New Year to all!

I hope all my connections had a great Christmas and New Year and are looking forward to what promises to be an exciting 2018.

A Time For Change

2017 was an interesting year for me, full of big decisions and changes which now means that 2018 will be different and challenging yet a very exciting time for me.

As many of my connections will know, I decided to leave my desk at Page Group at the end of last year however I wasn’t in a position to confirm my next move until now. I’m delighted to confirm that I’m now a key member of the procurement & supply chain team here at SF Group in Nottingham.

With hindsight, the past few years at Page were challenging yet rewarding and I managed to build incredible relationships with colleagues, candidates and clients alike. However sometimes you need to take a bold step and push yourself, so when the opportunity with SF Group came along it was just too good to pass by.

Since forming part of Ignata, the SF brand has been on a huge growth trajectory and now they are increasing their footprint across numerous specialisms across the East Midlands. Significant growth inevitably brings fantastic opportunities and I have been given the chance to be part of this journey by growing the Procurement & Supply Chain division.

Although this challenge isn’t for the faint hearted, I know what can be achieved with hard work and with a successful business backing you and so far so good in 2018.

Though I am still very new to SF, I can already see what a great bunch of people I will be working with.  The team, the environment and most of all their collective desire to provide an exceptional service means that our goals are aligned.

Previously recruiting for only permanent roles within ‘indirect’ opportunities within the private sector, I’m now thrilled to be given more autonomy to work across a greater market landscape within procurement & supply chain and inline with both my own and the SF Group values I will always endeavour to deliver a far more effective service to both candidates and clients.  I am covering both Nottingham and Derby and will be working on both interim and permanent roles so I have many channels in which to find my candidates a role to suit their needs.

So whether you are looking for a new opportunity within the procurement and supply chain sector or indeed you have a vacancy in this arena, please do get in touch.

For clarity here’s an insight into a selection of roles I will be recruiting for;

  • Senior Planner /
  • Senior Merchandiser /
  • Category Manager /
  • Senior Category Manager /
  • Contract Manager /
  • Planning Manager /
  • Procurement Manager /
  • Supply Chain Director /
  • Procurement Director /
  • Fleet & Logistics positions /

I’m excited about the future of the Procurement & Supply Chain division here at SF Group and wish you and your business a productive and prosperous new year.
