Thursday 14th April saw our first Women in Construction event in London. The event was organised by O'Neill and Brennan Recruitment Consultants Jackie Murray and Karina Stamburska, to say a big thank you to some of the ladies we work with on a daily basis.
We were joined by the Senior Resident Liaison Officers at Wates – Doina Caniparu, Lynne Mitchell and Lisa Armstrong, as well as Barbara Plackett, a Lead Administrator, who has been with Kier Construction for 28 years and is now based on their Greenwich Project.
Female workers only make up around 11% of employees within the Construction Industry; we wanted to take some time to thank them for their contributions as well as set up an informal event to discuss the industry, experiences and a general get together.
We are looking to make this a regular event each month and would welcome hearing from women throughout the construction industry who would like to attend our next event planned for early June.
Please get in touch with Jackie Murray if you would like to attend firstname.lastname@example.org.
