Specialist Procurement Recruitment and Consultancy Services

Welcome to Purchasing Solutions

Purchasing Solutions have been providing specialist procurement consultancy and outsourcing services for the past 20 years to both Public and Private sector clients. Our focus has been the delivery of efficient procurement services, robust negotiated contracts and above all direct measureable savings.

Our Clients have realised the value of modern, efficient purchasing attitudes and systems. They’ve gained significant bottom line benefits through better decisions, focused systems and tighter control of costs with the involvement of a professional procurement function.

Over the years Purchasing Solutions have set-up and developed the procurement function in many blue chip companies. In many cases this has involved the sourcing and development of key purchasing professionals.

Recognising the need in the market, Purchasing Solutions have launched its dedicated Recruitment Division which can provide strong procurement professionals suitable to the specific client needs to operate on both a ‘contract placement’ or ‘full time’ basis.

If your enterprise has significant non-payroll spend, takes important purchasing decisions each year, or has a requirement for strong purchasing staff for your in-house operation, you should be talking to Purchasing Solutions
