What’s your job title?
What does your role involve?
I’m responsible for the construction phase of the project until it’s handed over to the client. This involves managing day-to-day operations and ensuring the safety of operatives while they’re working on site.
What’s your background?
I spent 10 years on my tools as a chippie before being sent on my first GNVQ course to train to become a Site Manager. Over the course of my career, I’ve worked on a variety of projects of different types and sizes – ranging from £3m to £350m; from housing to airport refurbishments, and even building new courts and facilities for the All England Tennis Club.
What are you enjoying most so far about your role?
Although I’ve worked on modular build projects before, this is my first experience running one, which is really rewarding. I’m also enjoying working with the rest of the team, everyone I’ve met so far has been so friendly and helpful.
What appealed to you about Elkins Construction?
I like that it’s a local family-run business with family values, and because Elkins works on projects in my local area, I can really see the impact the work has on the community.
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
Spending time with friends, particularly my best friend (my nine-year-old daughter), and going to concerts.
If you had to describe yourself in three words, what would they be?
Approachable, fun and grey!
We’re off to the pub – what’s your order?
I’m not fussy, so anything really – except a fruity cider.
