A housing association procurement consortium has swelled the size of its buying team with the addition of four new staff members.
Procurement For All is growing its purchasing team to nine people as it announced a record amount of spend went through its frameworks last year.
The organisation, which is run by a group of six housing associations and has 21 landlord members in total, released £48 million of spend through its 14 frameworks during 2014.
Martin Ellicott and Katie Mullings have been appointed as procurement officers, while Lee Williams and Edward Roughley have joined as procurement administrators.
Ellicott joins from Procurement for Housing, where he held a similar role for two years, and as part of his new job he will be supporting the framework and mini-competition services.
Mullings, who was previously account manager at Top Right Group, will oversee the procurement consultancy division of the organisation, covering projects currently valued at more than £200 million.
Procurement For All’s frameworks cover small works, cyclical repairs and new build works across the UK. It also offers bespoke procurement consultancy services to the public sector.
Keith Armstrong, managing director of Procurement For All, said: “I’m delighted to welcome Martin, Katie, Edward and Lee to the team as we continue to grow.
“Last year we released a record £48 million of work through our frameworks, saving our members £8 million.
“Our success is our members’ saving and it is testament to the hard work of our team that we can expand and continue to offer great value frameworks to our customers.”
Ellicott said: “Procurement For All has an excellent reputation in the market and is well-respected by its member housing associations.”
