Good luck Wendy!
One of our own, Wendy Heaton, temporarily left us on Friday, November 6th as she begins her maternity leave. Wendy is due to give birth soon to a baby boy and we’re all very excited for the addition to our extended Hub family.
Wendy has spent the last several years with NWCH as Framework Manager – KPIs and Social Value, but this doesn’t reflect the many different facets she has covered in her role.
These responsibilities included: community engagement, ensuring that all facets of performance both for Clients and the contractors are measured and reported, working closely with Clients and contractors measuring the performance of the contractors against budget, program and contractor team. She was also responsible for the management of the highly successful Small Works Framework which launched at the end of September 2019.
Whilst these are huge shoes to fill, we already have a more than capable team member to take over in the form of former CAPPS Framework Manager – Rachel Hughes. Rachel has herself recently returned from a period of maternity leave after giving birth to baby Sophie at the beginning of the year and will be stepping in to ensure continuity and success in her new role. Rachel can be contacted at Rachel.Hughes@manchester.gov.uk or alternatively on 0161 219 6213.
Ian Hall, Framework Lead at NWCH had the following to say in regards to Wendy’s departure:
‘Wendy is a crucial cog in the NWCH machine and whilst she will be sorely missed, we as a group could not be happier for her and just know she will make a great mother.’
We on the NWCH Framework Management Team, and I’m sure those from Framework Partners, Clients, and other stakeholders Wendy comes in to contact regularly, will miss her sunny disposition, dedication and hard work.
We wish her all the best in this next chapter in her life and we just know that just as she is with her work, she will be a great success as a fantastic mother!
Good luck Wendy! See you in 12 months!
