Introduction from Fiona Ledden, Director of Legal & Procurement

Procurement in Brent has transformed since 2010 with a new Procurement Strategy, a new Procurement improvement project and a new approach to working with the rest of the organisation. The procurement team work very closely with colleagues in the legal team providing our Clients with a true customer focus and an enabling attitude. The Procurement function faces an exciting few years whereby significant savings contributions are expected, a new department structure has been set up to deliver results.
