We're proud to support and celebrate International Women’s Day across Sir Robert McAlpine. 

The theme this year is #ChooseToChallenge. A challenged world is an alert world. Individually, we're all responsible for our own thoughts and actions - all day, every day.  Today, we are using the opportunity to celebrate the achievements of women across the business. 

Introducing Megan Haslam

Megan Haslam joined the company five years ago and has worked her way up the career ladder from trainee engineer, graduate and now Package Engineer.

She was awarded Construction Manager Chartership from the CIOB earlier this year, and is looking forward to being a leading voice for sustainable construction and ensuring the built environment is a positive space for both people and planet.

In this video, Megan highlights more about her role, 'no two days are the same', her recent achievements working on a variety of projects from residential to commercial and aspirations for the year ahead as she takes on a new scholarship. 

You can also find out more about Megan's role over on our Instagram page as she shares videos of life onsite as a Package Engineer. 

 

Megan Haslam, Package Engineer

As a female I think sometimes you can be underestimated. I have worked incredibly hard and achieved a lot since joining the company 5 years ago but am still seen by some as young and inexperienced which I worry will mean missing out on opportunities to progress. I am really ambitious and I know what I want! My advice would be not to compare – a woman might perform her role slightly different to a male colleague but diversity and individuality is what brings strength to a team.
