I also oversee and assist the Contracts Support team to make sure that the service that contractors and consultants receive is seamless, and that project information is turned around in a timely and efficient manner.

This year we cycled from Humber Bridge to Barnsley and we raised money for the cancer ward at Sheffield Hallam Hospital.
