In late February, Jobsbank and Lendlease partnered for their first social procurement supplier event.

Centring around the Frankston Hospital redevelopment, the event gave a platform to organisations providing goods, services and employees and are also seeking to meet objectives outlined by the Victorian Government’s Social Procurement Framework throughout the project. 

In her opening remarks, Jobsbank CEO, Dr Karina Davis, noted the scale of the project and the opportunities it presents. 

“The Frankston Hospital project is not only changing the area and transforming the way healthcare is delivered for communities, but it’s also one of the biggest social procurement exercises we have witnessed since the launch of the Social Procurement Framework,” she said. 

“The Social Procurement Framework ensures that projects like this deliver social impact: jobs for those with barriers to entering the workforce, supply contracts for social enterprises and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander-owned businesses, and much more,” she added.

During the event, four businesses presented to a fully packed room and explained what happens every time their organisation is chosen to provide products, services or employees.
