I have been Finance Director, Company Secretary and an owner of SC4 Carpenters Ltd since its inauguration in 2000.
In addition to more than 20 years working in the construction industry, I have over 30 years experience of participating in European programmes, projects and
initiatives related to renewable energy, energy efficiency and sustainable communities.
When I first started out there were very few women in construction and in fact it took me many years to understand that I was working in the construction industry. This seems unbelievable in today's climate but reflected my office-based role as well as the attitude of men in the industry at the time.
In recent years, the opportunities for women in construction have grown. I have come to understand that not only do I work in this industry but that I have a pivotal role both in my company and as a role-model for others, particularly women, who are in, entering or considering a role in construction.
As an SME, our company doesn't have the clout of the industry giants. However, I try to ensure that we take every opportunity we can to keep the dialogue open, promoting diversity in our social media and website blogs as well as via in-house training. This includes celebrating Pride, promoting Black Lives Matter or International Women's Day, promoting mental health charities such as the Lighthouse Club, Mates in Mind and ManGang and ensuring our management are all mental health first aiders. We also share our personal journeys in Construction. This includes talking about the role of women and promoting the skills and abilities offered by dyslexic and neurodivergent people which can be beneficial for many construction roles including carpentry.
Roles: Overall responsibility for Financial and Regulatory compliance, as well as HR and Wellbeing, ICT, energy efficiency and sustainability.
