Public Sector Plc

Kate Howe, Development Manager, Public Sector Plc: “I supported PLACED throughout 2019 and was overwhelmed at the quality of the Academy and the education that Graduates take away. It is a privilege to be able to give back to the communities we work in and watch how young people grow when given the opportunity to give their thoughts and opinions on our built environment.”

Leena Gillespie, Development Manager Public Sector Plc: “I’m really excited to get involved with PLACED and work with young adults to share ideas on how and what they can do to create the future societies that they will live and work in. Our communities and neighbourhoods are continually changing, and it is key that the younger generation feel empowered to get involved and consider careers in the built environment where they can bring about positive change”.


Public Sector Plc partners with Councils and Housing associations to fast track delivery of zero carbon housing, strategic regeneration and maximising land and property assets with an emphasis on delivering wider socio-economic benefits to local communities. We have significant in-house expertise and resource to complement our Partners’ existing skills. Public Sector Plc partnerships undertake all aspects of land and property activities, including asset management, land promotion & regeneration, development management, strategic investment analysis and funding solutions.

“Encouraging the brightest and best young talent to build a rewarding and fulfilling career within the built environment sector is critical to the future prosperity of our industry. For a sector that is fundamental to our health, wellbeing and way of life, we often fail to properly articulate the wealth of opportunities that exist for aspirational young people, especially those with limited direct connections to the industry through family and friends.

“The PLACED Digital Academy is an excellent way for us to reach out to those audiences and high-achieving individuals who might never have considered a career within construction, challenging outdated perceptions and providing a real insight into this dynamic and tech-led global sector. We are looking forward to working closely with students over the course of the year.”


We are ISG, a global construction specialist delivering places where people and businesses thrive. Our vision comes to life through partnership. We build relationships on trust, collaboration and open communication, because it’s the only way to create places as smart and resilient as the people who use them. We’ve come this far because we embrace change; we don’t just talk about what our industry needs to shape its future, we’re also working to make it happen. We need innovative and creative skills, along with diversity and fresh thinking, to reflect the clients we work with and the communities we work in. 

Liverpool City Region Combined Authority

“Devolution means bringing power from Whitehall and Westminster to a local level.  It is based on the obvious truth that local people know what’s best for their communities.  That’s why we were keen to partner with PLACED Academy as part of getting closer to local communities to find out what’s important to them.   We will then use that information to inform the Combined Authority’s future plans and activity.”


The Combined Authority is led by Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram and brings together Liverpool City Region’s six local authorities – Halton, Knowsley, Liverpool, Sefton, St Helens and Wirral – to tackle the big issues that matter to us all.

We work together to make an impact in areas such as transport, employment and skills, culture, digital and housing. By using the devolved powers we have, we can make a real and meaningful difference to the lives of the people living and working in the area.
