Meet the director – Peter Lawson

The team developing and managing our People related solutions is led by Strategic Category Director, Peter Lawson. Peter joined CCS in October 2016 from ISS, the international facilities management company, where he was Head of Procurement & Property for the United Kingdom and Ireland. Peter has also held commercial leadership roles in a number of blue chip organisations including GE, Barclays, RBS and The Burton Group.

Peter says:
“We are working on a number of exciting new initiatives to make sure we have the right solutions in place for our public and third sector customers. Our new Public Sector Resourcing framework is now live, offering you a single, simplified way to source an extensive range of temporary staff to support your every business need – from admin and clerical staff, through digital and technology roles, to operational staff, university specialists, non-clinical health workers and senior managers. We’re also developing an innovative new marketplace to help you quickly access local suppliers for the right legal advice at the right price; and a framework for supply teachers, is being developed in collaboration with the Department for Education.”
