IWD 2023 – Carmen’s Story

Today is International Women’s Day.

Throughout the week we are celebrating women in construction. Today we have Carmen’s story.  

I chose to work for The Danny Sullivan Group (DSG) and the construction industry because it offers a wide variety of job opportunities, from manual labour and skilled trades to engineering, project management and business administration.   

Working for DSG is rewarding and challenging and a great place for women who are seeking new career opportunities where you can be part of an important team building key infrastructure projects in the UK that will have a positive impact on people’s daily lives for decades to come. 

At DSG I feel comfortable and included because I work in a positive work environment that is supportive and welcoming.  It offers a very inclusive culture that values diversity and promotes equity and fairness. The managers are really approachable and supportive, they do respond to employee needs.  

If you are thinking of a career in the construction industry, I would say do it! I would recommend the construction industry to other women due to the variety of career paths and opportunities available.    

You can start out in entry-level positions and work your way up to management and leadership roles or pursue specialised skills and become an expert in a particular field.  I started out working as a cleaner and have progresses to a tallyman – the sky is the limit, and the opportunities are endless. 

I love working at the Danny Sullivan Group and you will too!  There’s a real opportunity for progression, they offer competitive salaries and benefits in a rewarding environment that leaves you with a sense of accomplishment where there is an opportunity to make a difference.
