How long have you been working in construction?

1 year and 9 months

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

If the suffragettes didn’t do what they did, then I would be where I am today. If they hadn’t fought for women, potentially I would be at home right now living as a housewife and not fulfilling my ambitions and dreams!

Why do you love construction?

The working environment. I feel like I can be myself! I love working with the construction cliental as I find most people are really down to earth and you can have a laugh! Also I learn something new every day, so my job never gets boring!

Why is Elliott a good employer for equality?

Elliott believed in me and gave me a chance regardless of my gender or how old I was. I was 23 years of age when I was given the promotion to ASM from ISE and I feel that other companies may not have given me the opportunity because I am a young female. Working at Elliott has changed my life. I am more confident and I feel empowered. Elliott have enabled me to live the life I have always wanted to live and I have barley any worries.

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

If the suffragettes didn’t do what they did, then I would be where I am today. If they hadn’t fought for women, potentially I would be at home right now living as a housewife and not fulfilling my ambitions and dreams!
