Chartered Construction Manager, AECOM

I always wanted a hands-on career from a young age and my interest in property led me down the career path of becoming a Building Surveyor while I was still at school. At college, I completed a BTEC in Construction and then studied Building Surveying at the University of Reading. A short placement I completed while at college at URS (an AECOM legacy company) opened the door to my current job as a Building Surveyor at AECOM. Over the last three years, I have transitioned from Building Surveying to Construction Management and recently become a chartered member of the Institute of Building. I work on a range of different projects from university refurbishment schemes to prison refurbishment schemes acting as Technical Advisor for the Ministry of Justice. I am also a STEM ambassador and it is this role that has inspired me to work with the younger generation, in particular young women, to encourage them into the construction industry.

Why is it important to support diversity and inclusion? 

"I want to change the face of the construction industry so it is considered the 'norm' to see women in construction roles and is no longer a battle we have to fight for equality".
