Procurement team shortlisted for prestigious award
Your Housing Group’s procurement team is celebrating after being shortlisted in one of the housing sector’s most prestigious annual awards.
The housing provider’s procurement team, responsible for the managing an array of external suppliers providing goods and services, is a finalist in the Central Services Team category. The finals take place at Manchester Central on June 25.
Our procurement team is a worthy finalist in the Central Services Team category. The current team came together in April last year yet have already achieved significant savings for the business. In addition they have secured further value from suppliers in the form of creating apprenticeships and various community events.
Director of Procurement Katy Mills said: “We’re delighted to be in the running for an award. In 12 months, we’ve recruited a new team, assessed the needs of the business and successfully worked through 79 projects, with a further 126 projects in the pipeline.
“We’re already making a real difference to Your Housing Group and its customers and this award nomination is just reward for my hardworking team.”
Employing 900 people from several office locations, Your Housing Group manages 28,000 homes across the North West and the Midlands. We are projected to build more than 5,000 new homes in the next five years.
