Contract Manager- Southeast & London, PJH Group U.K. Ltd.

I grew up in South Cheshire attending schools in Chester where I regularly enjoyed rowing, which took me abroad to places such as Belgium for International Competitions. Prior to my professional career, I went to Sheffield Hallam University to study Psychology and from there went on a Mental Health Programme in Sri Lanka; supporting local communities and medical entities who help deliver a better quality of life to those with Mental illnesses. From there, I became Internal Auditor for an Electrical Wholesaler working across the U.K. performing audit and compliance reviews. Following my move to London, I have since worked in the construction industry. I originally moved internally to a Branch in Wandsworth, where I now live and further developed my career as an Area Sales Manager for a Ventilation manufacturer. More recently, I joined PJH Group U.K. Ltd. as the Contract Manager for the Southeast & London region, where I support house builders/developers and Kitchen Furniture Manufacturers in the supply and installation of home appliances. On the personal side of things, as a 27-year-old I’m an avid skier, footballer and currently play twice a week for my local Sunday League club and 6-aside team. I’m passionate about Formula 1 and I am a Williams Fan for my struggles. I’ve lived in London since May 2021 and absolutely love the vibrant culture and how you’re never short of things to do. I plan to reside in London for as long as possible, despite having scratched the itch, so to speak.

Statement:

Building a supportive culture surrounding Mental Health is vital, not only within the Construction Industry but within all walks of life. The open culture approach enables us to eradicate stigma and stereotypes involved with those who suffer from Mental Health illnesses. The idea of not creating a culture that enables a person to speak out, and receive support is horrifying. This also, potentially creates a health and safety risk to those suffering silently; highlighting the importance of creating a support network for all.
