“After speaking to colleagues who had supported the project in previous years and hearing how rewarding they found the experience, I was thrilled to be given the chance to get involved this year.

I am really looking forward to sharing my experience and mentoring the pupils through their projects, hopefully to right through to the final!”

What I do: I manage a team of 10 Regional Managers, to provide Health, Safety & Environmental guidance and support to number of offices and sites across the North of England and Scotland. The type of work we do is predominately construction related and includes everything from minor repairs to major refurbishments, building new properties and we also provide a range facilities management services to schools and hospitals.

A bit about me: Apart from my job with Mears I am also a member of the Army Reserve, so don’t get a lot of time off. However when I do, I enjoy spending time with my family, especially my new Grandson, traveling and also enjoy watching Newcastle United (when they win!)
