Women in Construction Week | Meet the Team | Sarah Stevens

This year Women in Construction Week takes place between the 7th and 11th of March. Celebrated annually, it is a time to highlight all of the many great initiatives and work of women within the construction industry.

As part of Women in Construction Week, Kilwaughter highlights the working experience of our new addition to the K Rend team, Sarah Stevens, within the construction industry.

How did your career path take you into the construction industry?

I was promoting/selling photocopiers at a local council event that was aimed at pushing local businesses to buy local, I introduced myself to a manufacturer who then called and asked if I would like to have a chat and was offered a great opportunity.

What advice would you give to women considering a career in the construction industry?

It is a challenging but very rewarding career, I would say that confidence can be key to being successful within the industry, the route to market and product.

Customer service is also important along with building trust - always be at the end of the phone to help and support.

Don’t be worried that some people think you don’t have all the knowledge just because you are a woman within the construction industry, don’t be afraid to speak up and be yourself, everyone is willing to help you succeed.

What do you love about working in the construction industry?

Meeting customers and building relationships, putting a face to the name, and the best part… getting involved with a project from start to finish and seeing the end product.
