I have worked almost exclusively in pre-construction work winning roles within the construction sector since I graduated from Loughborough University, with a First Class BSc (Hons) Degree in Architectural Engineering and Design Management, in 2008.
I therefore have a detailed knowledge of the construction industry market and typical procurement processes.
Through my career to date, I have held full time management roles in business development, bidding and design co-ordination – and have delivered bids for some of the largest and most complex infrastructure contracts of recent years.
This includes helping major Tier 1 contractors such as Balfour Beatty, Ferrovial Agroman, Morgan Sindall, Kier, BAM, Vinci and Taylor Woodrow secure contracts for clients including Crossrail Ltd, Heathrow Airport Ltd, Transport Scotland, London Underground and Highways England.
I am used to working within highly pressurised environments, leading large, diverse and multi-cultural teams, to deliver winning bids within challenging timeframes.
