Having started her career with Purdy as a Contract Administrator in September 2020, and after moving across to the role of a Commercial Administrator in February this year, we’re delighted to announce that Lily McManus has now been promoted to the position of Junior Commercial Supervisor from 1st December 2022.

Lily’s story is one of genuine career progression within Purdy, borne out of her hard work and commitment to progress since joining the Company. After moving across to the Commercial team, and being mentored primarily by Kye Gardner, Senior Commercial Supervisor, Lily’s attention to detail, ability to quickly learn new skills and contributing with her own ideas on how to work more effectively and efficiently has now led to this promotion and recognition of her achievements to date.

Lily will be picking up more responsibilities across the Company, working within Purdy’s commercial team across all Electrical, Gas and Build departments.

Lily joined Purdy having already obtained her L3 Business Administration qualification, and her desire to progress and build on her skills initially resulted in her moving into the Commercial Team from the Contract Administration team, and we hope that in due course she will progress into being a full Commercial Supervisor.

Lily will be embarking upon a Certificate in Quantity Surveying Practice accreditation in due course to further her professional knowledge and skills within this area. Lily is based at Purdy’s Head Office, Mott Street.
