"I've worked in construction since I left school, gaining qualifications at the same time as working on site. I joined Redrow in 1998 as contracts manager, attracted by the company’s excellent reputation within the industry, and I was promoted to my current role in 2002".
As construction director, I am responsible for managing the construction team to build a quality product professionally, efficiently and safely. Agreed timescales and budgets must be met while delivering a home that meets the high standards of both the company and the customer.
Receiving good customer feedback is one of the highlights of my working life. It gives me tremendous job satisfaction to deliver a quality product to someone who will probably never make a larger purchase in their lives.
Another highlight has been my involvement in developing our in-house assistant site manager development programme, through which each employee can gain an NVQ level three qualification. The aim of the programme is to give potential new site managers greater confidence in their day-to-day roles by broadening their understanding of the industry. Each site manager has their own style, but the attitude on site towards health and safety or delivering high quality results is the product of the site manager’s personal drive and leadership qualities."... hide
