We’re pleased to have welcomed Jenna to the SEC team this month. As we begin  to provide more support to customers pre- and post- procurement Jenna’s role as Technical Partnerships Manager has never been more essential. 

Jenna is a qualified surveyor and brings with her over 10 years experience working in the housing sector. She’ll be the lead contact in our business for providing technical assistance to our customers. She’s able to advise on effective contract management, technical queries, Section 20 legislation and is on hand to help design and deliver your technical documents.

Jenna is the fourth team member to join SEC whilst we’re still working from home –  we’re delighted to have her on board! She’s provided a few words for our network below:

I have over 10 years experience working in the housing sector, starting at local government and then being transferred to one of the largest ALMO’s in the South East. There I worked in property services and asset management.

I then moved to the private sector helping a service provider set up the surveying arm of their business. From there I moved to work in a surveying environment within the insurance sector.  This involved surveying and contract management/administrator services to the insurance industry assisting with large loss claims.

Now I am finally at SEC I am looking forward to getting fully involved with my role as Technical Partnerships Manager. I can see that SEC has grown significantly over the past few years and I am excited to be part of the team offering advice and solutions surrounding technical aspects and procurement.

I am proud to be part of a company that genuinely strives to improve its services and reinvests back to the sector.  I will use my experience to help Members and users overcome the challenges they face and work collaboratively to help everyone to achieve their goals and objectives.
