My first job on graduating in 1987 was as site Engineer for Balfour Beatty where I stayed for 10 years rising to Project Manager. Over the next 20 years, I worked for another 2 major contractors rising to Contracts Manager. In 2010 I moved into work winning and pre-construction management as Bid Manager. In 2017 I took an opportunity to move back into production and I’m currently Operations Manager for Engie Regeneration Limited working on a varied portfolio of new build projects. I run a team of contract and site managers, planners, maintenance managers, and a Community Engagement Officer.
