Shelforce production supervisor Maxine Ryder has been shortlisted for Woman of the Year at this year’s Women in Housing Awards.

With 75% of the company’s workforce having a disability, Maxine also looks after the pastoral care side of the operation as well as the day-to-day supervision on the shop floor. Maxine manages and communicates with employees who have different needs and also supports the workers outside of the factory in their daily lives.

Business manager Howard Trotter said: “Maxine is an inspiration to everyone here at Shelforce; she demonstrates real leadership and has a personal commitment to supporting the team which is why she excels in the role.

“For Maxine it’s not about her, it’s always about the team and that’s why she’s so good at her job. This recognition is fantastic for her, she is a huge part of our success here at Shelforce and it’s fitting that she has been nominated as she is an outstanding ambassador for women in housing.”

This year’s Women in Housing Awards will take place alongside the Housing Heroes Awards as the opening ceremony at Housing 2023, Europe’s largest housing festival, at Manchester Central from June 27-29, with popular Ten o’clock News anchor Huw Edwards hosting.
