James Dobbin

Director, Supply Chain & Procurement Practice

James Dobbin stood in the office next to green plants.
James joined BIE as a Director in 2024 to lead the Procurement Search practice on a global scale. His focus is to partner with clients and deliver the best Procurement talent for their business.

He operates across an array of organisations, from fast-growth start-ups to transformation-led organisations, both privately owned and PE backed.

With a proven track record of exceeding targets, driving revenue growth and forging strategic partnerships, James excels in closing high-value processes and articulating the value of optimised recruitment solutions.

Typically, James runs retained assignments for Chief Procurement Officer searches and their direct reports, predominantly across the UK and EMEA. He has more than eight years’ experience and has spent the last five years focusing on search mandates. With a true commitment to discretion, James prides himself in his collaborative approach to connect individuals with the right organisation and leaders.

Born in Hampshire, James attended university in the USA on a soccer scholarship where he majored in writing while minoring in graphic design. Outside of work, James enjoys sport, books, film, and has a weird obsession with anything from the 80s – despite being born a decade too late!
