Helen Carter is an experienced procurement professional who after 10 years in the profession found a new way of making it even more interesting – namely sustainable procurement. After working in Direct mail, manufacturing and then Infrastructure construction Helen embarked on a journey of supporting Carillion in its quest to embed the flexible framework and drive more sustainable procurement practices.
After a few years of this challenging but successful endeavour she discovered an appetite to learn more and joined Action Sustainability as a consultant. Over the last 10 years with the organisation, she has worked with a number of clients including Network Rail, TFL, Skanska, Molson Coors, Balfour Beatty, United Utilities, WRAP, MOD and many more.
She has developed and delivered numerous training course (too many to mention if you ask her), provided process support in terms of developing strategies and policies, supplier development plans, PQQ’s and ITT’s. Although her passion remains sustainable procurement, she has recently expanded her expertise and has become AS’s centre of knowledge in the fight to combat modern slavery, developing numerous tools designed to help organisations and their supply chains meet and/or exceed the requirements of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
