Account executive, Olivia Larcombe, is the newest addition to our Procurement People team and is based in our Birmingham office.
A Sport and Exercise Science graduate, Olivia was a National level long distance runner and is a former member of the highly successful Sutton Coldfield Girls’ Squad for 7years.
In 2009, a sport’s injury meant that Olivia had to withdraw from a highly promising athletic career. During the 2012 Olympics Olivia became one of the Olympic Games Makers working at the USA Olympic Track & Field training camp.
Our Olivia is number 83
Olivia comes to Procurement People following three and a half years working in an administration role for a high street fashion brand’s Midland flagship store. Olivia’s retail experience included managing the retail shop floor, helping customers and she was the creative, marketing co-ordination and project lead for the launch of the 2015 Designer Balmain collaboration collection at the store.
Olivia was also picked to be part of a small UK team to support the opening of the company’s first Australian store; Olivia led and implemented a staff training programme to teach the organisation’s standards and values during store launch period and beyond.
Olivia explains: “I really enjoyed working in the retail sector where my job demanded a very strong focus on detail and accuracy. However, I’m delighted to have made the move to Procurement People because working in recruitment means that I will be able to apply my natural detail-focussed approach and be able to support clients and candidates as they change roles.
I love working with large and small organisations, ensuring that all the details are tied up and making sure all the organisational requirements are fulfilled. I’ve always been highly motivated to be the best at what I do and I hope to bring that same energy and motivation to my role at Procurement People.”
Tony Goldsby, MD, Procurement People said: “We are really pleased that Olivia has joined our Birmingham team. She brings a great level of motivation and energy and has already become a natural and fantastic addition to our team.“
