    Diversity in Procurement
    This event brings together procurement leaders and a top procurement recruitment firm to discuss how they have set up diverse procurement teams and the benefits this has delivered.

    Each speaker will present a short presentation on how they have built a diverse procurement team and achieved this in their roles and businesses. Following this the speakers will form a panel for questions from attendees on the webinar.

    If you have any questions for the panel ahead of the event, please email

    Rose Younger

    Procurement DirectorOnesource

    Rose Younger describes herself as a commercial manager with a public sector ethos. She has a commercial background and first hand commercial knowledge from running a couple of small companies. Rose started her working life as a teacher, so she is committed to developing and growing procurement talent.

    Rose current role is as Director of Procurement for oneSource, a shared service across the London boroughs of Newham and Havering. These are ethnically very different boroughs both in terms of the communities they represent and staffing. The disparity between the 2 Councils and the nature of the shared service brings with it significant challenges in the diversity agenda, which Rose has not yet resolved. It’s an ongoing journey.
