Victoria has worked in local government and public procurement for the past 24 years, which has provided her with a deep understanding of the challenges facing the public sector - particularly following the events of the past year.
Through her work, Victoria has also seen the opportunities that can be created when securing real value for money and maximising social impact and community engagement at every stage of a project. There is a need for the private sector to partner with public bodies to maximise community benefits, and Perfect Circle champions social value in everything the consultancy does.
Victoria currently sits on Perfect Circle’s inaugural Social Value Taskforce, having engaged with the Social Value Portal since 2017, and she is also a board member and trustee for the Construction Youth Trust to share best practice and raise awareness.
Young people are at the heart of Victoria’s social value efforts, and she is committed to becoming a visible role model to inspire the next generation, particularly when it comes to tackling the gender imbalance in the male-dominated construction and infrastructure industry.
