Head of Fieldglass – EMEA North, SAP
I lead SAP Fieldglass in Northern Europe. SAP Fieldglass is part of the Intelligent Spend and Business Network solution area (Procurement) in SAP and our solution set help organisations manage their external workforce and service providers through standardising the engagement of all categories of external workforce, automating contracting, invoice and payment processes. SAP is one of the world's largest business software organisations with over 100,000 employees globally. I have been part of the regional leadership team now for two years after previously having led our professional services organisation where our team delivered customer solutions across EMEA as a whole. I have always worked in or around the world of external workforce having fallen into recruitment very much by accident after collage. I began my career in high street recruitment having not known what I wanted to do, quickly moved into consulting and project delivery. In 2007 decided to take a break to have my children and stepped back from the corporate world, while doing so establishing a bookkeeping business from home. Fast forward 6 years and I found myself as a newly sole parent, needing to re-build my life and head back to full time employment with two young girls to support, I rang my old contacts and a few days later was back in the world of consulting and project delivery of External Workforce Solutions, ERP implementations and Vendor Management. Through a number of subsequent moves, I started at SAP in 2016 and have not looked back. Throughout my career at SAP it is difficult to pin point individual successes, I am part of a hugely successful team who have delivered key customer programs and wins while being able to provide for and bring up my two girls.
