Assistant Project Manager
What expertise and background do you bring to the table?
I started within the construction industry as a year out student studying Construction Management. Once I completed my studies at university, I moved on to become a Graduate Site Manager working within a Main Contractor before I became a Site Manager. I have previously worked on projects such as Student Accommodation, Hotel builds, and a build-to-rent scheme. I am keen to progress within the Construction Industry and learn about the future of construction, having recently obtained my MCIOB.
Can you outline the responsibilities of your role?
My role includes managing all stages of a project’s lifecycle from planning all the way through to the end of the project while working alongside Quantity Surveyors to ensure that clients receive the best possible product. My week typically includes a number of meetings, including internal catch-ups, design team meetings, and meetings with clients. I also have visits to the site between these meetings to walk through projects with contractors, designers, and clients. A site visit can open up people’s minds to what may not have been seen on paper, and I am keen to do these sorts of site visits to help everyone gain an understanding of projects.

Describe your experiences and growth at Circle?
I recently started as an Assistant Project Manager. I have been welcomed into a friendly and great learning environment at Circle Development. I am currently working on two projects: Bristol Canon’s House, an office refurb project spanning over two large buildings with Heritage status, and Westminster Under School, a school expansion from an office building to a school building.
What is your favourite project?
My favourite project is Westminster Under School. This project consists of a 1990’s office building conversion to a school. This comes with its own complex needs from planning and design aspects. Seeing the planning process and the first steps of the RIBA stages is completely new to me and requires me to read and learn every day. This project will be rewarding to see through all stages, and I will gain valuable knowledge for future use.
What brings you joy outside of work?
I enjoy playing football for my local ladies’ team. I train each week while also playing matches and tournaments most months. I am also a keen football supporter and attend matches as and when I can. I enjoy travelling to different countries and experiencing different cultures and scenery, most recently visiting Brugge in Belgium where I visited the Belfort (Belfry) and enjoyed the architecture. I also enjoy spending time at home with my family and my cat Meetz.
