Head of Procurement and Contract Management at The Royal British Legion
I am a senior procurement professional with almost 20 years’ experience spanning both private and third sector roles. Passionate about self-development and developing teams/talent, I am currently the Head of Procurement & Contract Management at the Royal British Legion, the UK’s largest armed forces charity. I manage a team of six professionals who manage our spend under three distinct categories – Corporate Services (IT, FM, Estates, HR, Legal, etc.), Fundraising, Remembrance and Marketing (Creative, Events, Print, etc.) and Operations (Care Homes, Recovery, Grants, Welfare Services, etc). We are working through a challenging transformation programme, raising the profile of procurement within the charity and externally as well as implementing and improving systems and processes.
