Director, Procurement & Contracts

James is a qualified procurement professional experienced in strategic and operational procurement and supply chain management globally. Having delivered transformation programmes both in-house and for clients, James is a procurement strategist with extensive knowledge of competition and tendering, sole sourcing, joint ventures and partnering, relationship management and performance feedback.

He has a proven ability to create and lead high performing cross functional teams, and is a strong negotiator built on a career in construction and infrastructure, facilities management, professional services, aerospace, manufacturing, training, utilities and IT. He takes pride in building sustainable supplier relationships focused on mutual value.

What I enjoy about the role is the opportunity to develop key relationships across both the UK and Europe, to create strong and sustainable supply chains for the long term. Market conditions have been challenging for everyone but with mutual trust and awareness of the industry drivers, together with our supply chain partners, we’re able to think creatively whilst still mitigating project risks.
