Professional HE Services (PHES) is an umbrella company for membership organisations in Higher Education. Currently PHES is the corporate “parent” of four Special Interest Organisations (SIOs); the Association of University Directors of Estates (AUDE), the British Universities Finance Directors Group (BUFDG), the Higher Education Strategic Planners Association (HESPA) and Universities Human Resources (UHR). BUFDG also includes the Higher Education Procurement Association (HEPA), although HEPA is not an SIO of the company.
PHES is managed by an Executive Board supported by an Executive Director. The Directors delegate responsibility for day-to-day management of the associations to the most senior member of staff working on behalf of that association. In practical terms, the PHES Operations Director manages the central services team.
