Sue leads the bidding team at Height where she utilises her diverse skillset in many disciplines, while also working on key tendering and business development strategic projects for Height clients.
“Although challenging at first when I joined Height, the huge variety of clients we work for is something I now love now. I feel really privileged when a client entrusts us to help guide them through a tender or business development plan. I know that success can put a company on an amazing trajectory for their future, help them retain jobs, or open the door to grow their business and employ more people. By far one of the biggest highlights for me since joining Height is building great relationships with our clients and watching them flourish.”
