“I have been privileged to have been a mentor and be mentored by a number of wonderful people over the years and I believe there’s nothing better than being able to support others on their journey and career pathways.”
“I was delighted to be asked to be a Saint Ambassador because of my passion for competence – I have mentored many individuals over recent years, helping them to identify appropriate fire safety courses and offering advice regarding career progression in the fire sector. Becoming a Saint Ambassador allows me to extend my assistance to a wider construction audience, promoting what fire engineers actually do and ensuring that women continue to be well-represented in the industry.”
Andrew Parker - Director of BuildForce
