From apprentice to director-level, female staff members perform vital roles, right across TCi.
TCi’s inclusive approach hopes to break stereotypes and encourage development for all. Although there’s still a long way to go for both the company and the industry, things are moving in the right direction.
Here are some stories from just a few employees:
Lauryn started as an administration apprentice, but quickly developed skills in Human Resources and is now a senior manager. She explains; “it’s not always clear that construction career paths are available to women. We’re doing our best to promote the opportunities available so that others can see themselves in roles throughout the industry.”
Rhiannon joined TCi just over a year ago as an Assistant Quantity Surveyor and quickly became responsible for a £1.5m project, embracing training opportunities whilst operating across a variety of industries. She says; “My role is so exciting. One minute I’m in a harness, walking on a warehouse roof, the next I’m working on a detailed restoration programme for a grade II listed, former stately home or visiting the construction site for a nuclear power station!”
Emily is a Technical Services Assistant, and carries out a huge variety of important roles. She is the auditor and manager of TCi’s top-level accreditations, contributes to technical qualification documentation, without which TCi wouldn’t be able to deliver projects within the highly regulated industries. Emily says; “my role is constantly evolving, with new challenges every day. I spend time on site as well as the office and get to work with a range of outside agencies”.
Beth works as a Project Coordinator for TCi’s construction division in Somerset. “No two days are the same in my job. I’m working closely with the project management team, looking after several multimillion-pound projects at any time, and it’s great to be part of Europe’s largest construction site!”
