Previous Experience:

I began my career in Administration roles primarily in the financial industry in Dublin.  In 2002, my role transferred to Edinburgh, Scotland to cover a short-term leave of absence but loved it so much I wound up staying there for 6 years!

On my return to Dublin, I worked mainly in HR based roles and always enjoyed the administrative, organisational and analytical aspects to these roles, as they allowed for the development of very practical and cross-functional skills.

What you like about the industry?

It’s great that the construction industry is not a stationary one; it is always looking forward – continually utilising new technologies, encouraging the development of new skillsets, coming up with new and exciting ways to design and manage projects and builds.  It is constantly moving, evolving, and embracing of change.

Most exciting thing about working in DCT?:

Every day is something different!  DCT provides a very niche offering within the construction industry and it is a great place to learn new skills, develop as a professional and work with a committed and valued team.
