Leading developer contractor Higgins has appointed Amy Ross as Head of Social Value.
Amy brings a wealth of experience working in corporate social responsibility in the sector, having previously worked at Morgan Sindell Property Services as Corporate Social Responsibility Director.
Amy will shape and drive the company’s Social Value Strategy. Working closely with the Board of Directors, project teams and clients to develop and implement added social value on projects she will plan and promote events that will engage with local communities to create lasting outcomes, build strategic partnerships with organisations and charities and promote learning and educational opportunities within the sector.
Steve Leakey, Managing Director of Higgins comments, “Amy is a great addition to Higgins and she brings a vast amount of experience and knowledge to the company. We are all looking forward to working closely with her to maximise our Social Value Strategy going forward.”
Amy Ross adds, “I am extremely passionate about delivering sustainable legacy projects and working with people where you make a difference and change their lives, so I am thrilled to be given the opportunity to build this sector of the business with Higgins.
“When I first started my career there was very little emphasis on social value, now it is a fundamental part of new business and the construction industry. I am looking forward to working with the team to develop and implement the strategy and enhance business development and growth.”
For over 50 years Higgins has built a reputation as one of the most forward-thinking construction companies in the UK. Higgins is one of the few regeneration contractors that is able to deliver both new build and refurbishment solutions together with the added value of private sale capability.
