Borras catch up with Trainee Site Manager in support for Women in Construction

In light of encouragement and support for Women in Construction (WIC), we recently caught up with our Trainee Site Manager, Danica Chambers, who’s been with Borras Construction for over a year now. Danica has progressed well, showing a strong willingness to develop her skills and manage her day to day duties, after being placed on one of our prized schemes of work.

 

“IN SOME CASES I FEEL I NEED TO PROVE MYSELF AND DEMONSTRATE

THAT I KNOW MY JOB.”

Danica Chambers, Trainee Site Manager

 

Women working in construction is on the increase. 37% of new entrants into the industry coming from higher education are women. Women currently make up around 14% of construction industry professionals and this number can only be set to rise with more and more women choosing to work in construction.

The focus of Women in Construction Week is to highlight women as a viable component of the construction industry. WIC Week also provides an occasion for NAWIC’s thousands of members across the country to raise awareness of the opportunities available for women working in construction and to emphasise the growing role of women in the industry.

So what is it like? You can read the full interview below.
