I started my career in construction after leaving school 18 years ago as a trainee design engineer. After having children I moved into marketing and enjoyed the challenges this has brought, learning and developing new skills. Over the years my career path has changed, but I’ve always remained within the industry and I am now Communications and Social Value Advisor for Interserve Construction.

Since joining Interserve three years ago I have worked closely with the team in Yorkshire to develop their communications and social value activities. I now look after the regional communications and manage the social value activities, to maximise the outcomes for local communities. This includes engagement with local schools and colleges, working with apprentices, facilitating site visits and workshops and arranging events and fundraising activities.
