Global services company, Sodexo has appointed Angela Halliday as director of social impact with the responsibility of ‘driving’ Sodexo’s social value strategy for the UK & Ireland.

Sodexo is a ‘green rated’ supplier to the government across a variety of sectors including healthcare, education, justice and defence. 

Halliday will work with Sodexo chief executives who are responsible for delivering services to the public sector. She first joined Sodexo in 2008 as head of prisoner management at HMP Addiewell before moving to Australia to lead a new female prison in Perth.

Halliday returned to the UK in 2017 and during her tenure at Sodexo she won ‘significant’ contracts with Scottish Fire and Rescue Service and two regions for HM Revenue and Customs.

She said: “My whole career has revolved around making a difference to people and communities, from working in the third sector during a time when social value was emerging, to having spent the last eleven years with Sodexo whose philosophy is to have a positive impact on our communities through our quality of life services.

“This new role demonstrates how Sodexo does business, where quantifiable and firm ethical principles are being put at the heart of everything we do. I am delighted and honoured to be Sodexo’s lead for such an important part of our work and am looking forward to demonstrating the added value we create for our employees, clients, customers and communities.”

Sodexo are preparing to publish its third Public Service Pledge, an ethical manifesto on its commitments to investing in people, communities and customers.

Sean Haley, chairman of Sodexo UK & Ireland, added: "Angela’s appointment as director of social impact reflects our ongoing commitment to transparency and achieving sustainable growth whilst remaining true to our mission – to improve quality of life wherever we operate.”
