Construction Guild

THE DiligenCE team


A proven Senior Project Manager who is now a Senior Consultant, I ensure that our Project Management team have the same high values and dedication to project achievement that I have executed throughout my career.  

I ensure that the Diligence Team know they are part of a culture and highly ethical business, therefore I personally undertake the certification of our team members to ensure they have a Diligence Approved Certification of their skills before we place them into our Client offices.

Proud to be Chair of the Kent & Medway Construction Guild. I am passionate about utilities, construction, young people, training, education and sport.  

As a motivated, diligent consultant and Director, I am proud to have been recognised in the Great British Entrepreneur Awards 2016, supported by NatWest as a Finalist.  In March 2017, I was announced as the Winner of the 'Women In Construction' category and as a Finalist in the 'Women's Champion' categories of the Kent Women In Business (KWIB) Awards, whilst there wasn't any entries for this category in 2018, I will be a judge in the 2019 awards.

This year I am taking part in the Pink Shoe Club event for Women in Construction at Parliament in September, and am a Woman in Construction Ambassador for London Build 2018. 

Giving to others is important to me:

Giving Time – as a volunteer as Group Scout Leader of 1st North Cray Scout Group and am a Business Mentor to students at The Leigh UTC.

I love challenges – whether it is encouraging others in their achievements or setting my own.  On going training and skills is important to me and for Diligence Team, so in September 2018, I demonstrate my commitment to continuous professional development by undertaking the Certificate of Education and Training - after all, my work in Academies, Further Education institutions and with other Business means I already teach through my experience, but it is going to be great to qualify and maybe take that further too!

I am a truly positive and happy person which is why I have also signed up to 'The Hello Pledge'!
