Claire - Women construction

Claire

How long have you been working in construction?

Since February 2008

Why do you think it is important to have women working in what in theory is a male dominated working environment?

Without their work, females wouldn’t be able to vote let alone have progressed within industries previously seen as male dominated.

Why do you love construction?

The construction industry is one where you can relate to everything which comes across your desk. We live, work and visit buildings every day and you can relate to every new enquiry and building request which you see. It’s always a nice feeling to see the building come to life and know you had involvement with its creation, even if only small.

Why is Elliott a good employer for equality?

Elliott is a good employer for equality as they don’t discriminate against anyone for any reason, as long as you are qualified and have the skills to do the job, that’s what they look for.

Why do you think that the work the Suffragettes did is important?

Without their work, females wouldn’t be able to vote let alone have progressed within industries previously seen as male dominated.
