London Borough of Southwark – Member Benefit Statement

You won’t be able forget the last year – that’s for sure.

We’ve all been faced with challenges to our personal and business lives.  And, it’s proven just how resilient our sector and its people really are.

Customer usage has grown again for SEC, it’s increased each year over the last five years.  2020/21 saw us deliver over 135 contracts on behalf of members and guests – another new record.  This is a big feat given the number of hours and detail involved of each award.

We’ve procured a number of new frameworks for you too.  These provide customers with options and the latest pricing information for Consultancy, New Build and Asbestos Inspections. 2021 will see some new and innovative models added – watch this space!

You’ll have seen the launch of three new brands – HOW, Prospects and Foundation.  These are crucial to support the business with its mission to do more for the sector it loves.  Each will provide support around people, platforms and process for our Members.  We encourage you to take advantage of the new initiatives. More detail on HOW, Prospects and Foundation can be found below.

Watch this space for the latest notifications throughout 2021 – there’s so much to benefit from.  We’d be happy to join you and your teams to tell you more, any time.

We look forward to seeing you in 21/22. And, maybe not just on your laptop screen.
