I first began working at Civic Engineers in May 2017. I have good attention to detail and also quite a lot of patience with minutiae (although my children and husband would disagree on the patience front). I took on the role of Project Facilitator for the Civic Engineers’ Quality Management System (QMS) to help the studios to migrate from ISO9001:2008 standards to ISO9001:2015 standards and to gain accreditation for Health and Safety (45001) and Environmental (14001) standards. My role is now to ensure the QMS works effectively and to ensure that Civic Engineers’ continues to achieve ‘continuous improvement’. Additionally, I am responsible for various ad hoc projects within the company including coordinating a Green Warriors group, which aims to help Civic Engineers’ improve its green credentials.
It’s a varied role and I love the interaction with the teams across each of the studios and being part of such a vibrant company. From a non-engineering background (I’m an English Literature graduate and began my career working in Foreign Language Licences in Book Publishing), I love the varied projects that Civic Engineers undertake and really love the company’s ethos and values.
I’m a mum of three teenagers (not sure how that happened, time really does speed up as you get older) which keeps me busy. In my spare time, I love to stay active and enjoy a wide range of sports, I am a (VERY) amateur triathlete. I’ve also recently joined a netball team; I haven’t played since school but am loving being part of a team and the excitement of playing competitive matches.
In the last couple of years, I’ve discovered yoga and love both the mental and physical benefits of it. I’m gradually becoming more flexible and can now do a headstand, which felt like a huge achievement.
