GEM Partnership Win a Prestigious Durham University Supplier Award

On Friday 16th September Durham University’s Procurement Service hosted its annual Supplier Recognition Event at St Aidan’s College, Durham.  This prestigious event aims to recognise suppliers who have made an outstanding contribution to the University during the course of the previous year, with a number of award categories covering all aspects of supply and service.

Nominations were sought via a University wide survey open to all academic and support staff, with all short-listed suppliers invited to attend the awards ceremony and lunch at the Lindisfarne Centre.

We are delighted that GEM Partnership were announced winners in the Outstanding Communication category, a real achievement for the business given the relatively short period we have been working with the University as Exclusive suppliers of Finance Recruitment services.

Directors Lee Rankin and Ian Miller were present and picked up the award on behalf of GEM Partnership alongside a number of other successful organisations from here in the region.

Ian Miller – Director and Durham University Account Manager commented...

“We were absolutely delighted to have been nominated for an award in our first full year as part of the recruitment framework agreement. To win is a real testament to the hard work and commitment of the team here within GEM in developing a strong responsive partnership with the University which we hope will last many years.

The commendation from Durham University on why GEM were successful…

“GEM are a relatively new supplier to the University and right from the outset have demonstrated a commitment to work with the University and become a real partner.  They are keen to demonstrate their innovative approach to understanding the University's requirements to ensure that excellent candidates are sourced for our needs by setting up a communication strategy to get 'under the skin' of the hiring managers they may work with in the University.  Their account management team, headed by Ian Miller, is excellent.  Whilst GEM are keen to follow processes implemented on the contract they are also able to effectively communicate when flexibility should be applied to these processes in order that the University benefits.
