Anna Denham our Research and Engagement Officer and Bethany Young, Champion for I Can Make It in Hertfordshire

The event was attended by procurement professionals from across the East of England. In their presentation, they talked about our partnership with Hertfordshire County Council, (HCC) which is on the verge of creating new job opportunities through using procurement to do so. Anna and Bethany were also joined by Matthew Jones, Procurement Manager for HCC who spoke about the partnership from a procurement manager’s perspective and answered procurement specific questions about our partnership in the question and answer session that followed.  We’d like to thank Matthew for presenting with us, and HCC for their excellent co-operation with the campaign, that has brought has together to this point and will take us to new job opportunities.

I Can Make It has also been added to a list of resources for suppliers at North Somerset and South Gloucestershire councils. Our thanks go to Mark Roddan, Head of Procurement for North Somerset and South Gloucestershire Councils for his support of the campaign and for enabling us to be added on to this list.  And finally, we’re really looking forward to meeting Andy Burnham , Mayor of Greater Manchester Combined Authority in early November, so watch this space!
