Michelle’s role will support Morris & Spottiswood’s existing Scottish frameworks whilst also working with the public sector team to build on expertise in Scotland and across the UK as it continues to grow across education, healthcare, local and central government, and other public sector services. She will ensure strong client engagement and successful project delivery, and adherence to frameworks’ key drivers and target outcomes.

Across Scotland, Morris & Spottiswood works with the NHS National Shared Services Scottish Minor Building Works Framework, University of Glasgow, Crown Commercial Services, Pagabo, and City of Edinburgh Council.

We have ambitions to continue to grow this work and having a dedicated framework manager in Scotland will ensure the highest level of client service and engagement as we provide a true end to end delivery.

Michelle added: “I’m excited to be joining Morris & Spottiswood at a time of significant growth and to be working closely with the team to develop our presence in the Scottish public sector. There is huge opportunity for evolution and development and I’m looking forward to seeing this take shape. I’ve been really impressed by the long tenure of my colleagues within the business and their talent and motivation – I’m proud to be working with them as we continue to build on their recent achievements.”

With access to a significant pipeline of work across sectors, including central and local government, defence, health, and education, Morris & Spottiswood offers greater efficiency and value for framework members and their communities.
