Suky Atwal

Deputy Director, Capital Commercial

Department for Education


A property and procurement director with an exceptional track record of creating high performing teams and results. Determined and decisive with a very positive attitude and ability to bring about change at all levels and a style that puts real values at the heart of everything. An internal compass that is driven by honesty, trust, respect, and a clear focus on the interests and motivations of both customers and colleagues. I lead a large team of great people that deliver great results that delight our customers. I am accountable for more than £1bn of capital investment per year. I am currently introducing a 5 year strategy and vision into the Commercial Function Capital at the DfE. I am introducing category management to the DfE, will focus on customers (pupils and teachers) and ensure our procurement managers deliver real value for money over the medium to long term. I will focus on creating win-win deals for the supply chain and the DfE whereby we harness the innovative power of our supply chain and be at the forefront of quality, value and SRM.
