Procurement solutions you can rely on to help your business
We are all procurement professionals not career consultants– we have sat in your seat and we know the pressures you are facing and the problems you need help with.
We have deep sector and category experience across a number of sectors, including Construction & Infrastructure, Defence, Energy, Financial Services, Food and Hospitality, IT hardware and software, Manufacturing, Pharma & Healthcare, Private equity, Public sector.
We are completely independent and not affiliated to any suppliers so will always find you the best solutions without any hidden agendas.
We get the job done – you can rely on us to deliver what we promise, we pride ourselves on resilience and reliability.
We provide quality outputs and deliverables at pace.
We assume 100% accountability – if you aren’t satisfied with our service, you don’t pay.
We can offer fixed price contracts as an alternative to day rates, if you prefer, under our Outcome Not Day Rate (ONDR) approach so that you can have absolute clarity over the total costs at the outset and that there are no surprises.
Our solutions are cost effective, less risky and more agile compared to recruiting full time staff or hiring an interim via an agency.
We are real people bringing some personality to the table – not process robots or technical bores.
We offer high levels of energy, enthusiasm and innovation – so we like to think we offer something a bit different to the stereotype of procurement professionals
Most of our business is with repeat clients – so once you work with us, rest assured we will do a great job because we want you to come back for more.

What it's like to work with Keith and the team
“AVAM Solutions were a great help during my starting period at the company. Not only was Keith great at proposing strategic advice on the direction the function should take but also then also delivered category management training, created savings definitions to enhance our relationship with Finance and helped source an e platform tool to help move the function along the maturity curve. I found him to be honest, knowledgeable and most importantly emotionally intelligent which helped him forge strong relations with stakeholders in a short space of time.”
Navid AminHead of Procurement
“Keith is a diligent and proactive Procurement professional who has been able to turn his hand to some difficult operational challenges and successfully turned them around. His leadership style engenders support and collaboration. A pleasure to work with”
Phil ShepleyManaging Director
“Keith is flexible in his style and approach, diligent and always acts with integrity. His resilience and people skills enabled him to drive significant change in difficult circumstances. Keith thinks logically when dealing with challenges and is able to communicate effectively at all levels. It would be a pleasure to work with him again in the future.”
Kellie MatlockAccount Director
“AVAM Solutions provided high quality support into our supply chain solutions for a number of high profile bids. Keith was able to balance strategic oversight with a forensic attention to operational detail. This included helping to develop and create supply chains and markets, negotiating with potential suppliers and fostering innovation. I would have no hesitation in working again with AVAM Solutions in the future.”
Paul WilsonCampaign Lead
“I worked with Keith for many years and three elements always stood out. 1- He absolutely took ownership of delivery and the quality of his impact. 2- His word was extremely valuable, you would get what you needed once he’d committed to help you and 3- he has a calm, effective intelligence and ready humour which help to navigate tough situations.”
David PictonManaging Director
“Keith has an impressive combination of procurement, supply chain management, operations and project / programme management experience – a vital mix and one which very few in my experience have.”
Jon BriggsProject Director
"AVAM Solutions were engaged to generate a short animation to communicate our newly developed Digital strategy. Keith worked closely with my team to identify key messages and explore options to generate engaging content. Keith presented a clear delivery plan with timescales which he met, innovative communication ideas, but most importantly listened and worked with us. The outcome was incredibly well received with positive organisational engaging content. I was impressed by Keith’s knowledge and understanding, and found the experience working with AVAM to be a delight. I look forward to our next opportunity to work together."
Dan MilmanHead of Digital Strategy & Innovation Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
“When I needed a passionate supply chain lead who would not only deliver quality work but help improve the effectiveness of communication across the team, Keith was the first person I thought of. Over the three months that followed he made a really important contribution to a complex project, I look forward to having the opportunity to work with him again.”
“We commissioned AVAM Solutions to create a promotional video for a major IT change project. Keith helped shape our brief and worked closely with us to produce a high quality video within a tight schedule. It was a pleasure to work with Keith and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a highly professional service. On behalf of Liverpool University Hospitals Foundation Trust, I would like to thank Keith for the exceptional work produced in very challenging timescales.”
