Women working in construction at Henry Boot

Tuesday, September 9, 2014

Meg Munn MP recently visited the Henry Boot construction site in Stocksbridge, where there is a major scheme to build a retail park, office blocks and housing on the new ‘Fox Valley’ site. She was interested to see the progress of the redevelopment scheme, but pleased to hear that the company is making great efforts to recruit and train women as members of the team.

She also learned that Henry Boot are encouraging young people to consider a career in construction by visiting schools in the local area. During these visits the team challenge commonly held perceptions about the construction industry, emphasising that a career in construction is not confined to manual jobs, and that there are in fact a large variety of possible roles.

Danielle Kirk, a young employee at Henry Boot, talked of working her way up from being a receptionist to her current role as a planner, which involves ordering materials and setting time scale targets for large scale projects such as the ‘Fox Valley’ scheme. She describes her career in construction as both exciting and challenging, and loves the variety of work it involves.

Meg said:

“It is great to see so many talented women at the heart of this construction company, proving that the industry really has come a long way. It’s also fantastic to see such a large scale development project in Stocksbridge, which I am sure will have a very positive impact on the area.”
