Edmond Shipway LLP Belfast is delighted to announce the appointment of Anna McMullan as Junior Project Manager.
In 2016 Anna embarked on a career change by going back to University and studying for a Masters Degree in Construction Business and Project Management. “My ambition was to become a Construction Project Manager as I felt my interest in the built environment married well with the key skills of leadership, organisation and time management which I had developed in my previous career,” said Anna.
Since starting her new role with Edmond Shipway, Anna has been working with Derry and Strabane District Council in the design development of two new leisure centres, in Templemore, Derry and Strabane Town Centre with a capital value of £50 million.
“It is fantastic to be involved with the project at such an early stage as it presents an opportunity to work on a high value capital project from inception to completion. Joining Edmond Shipway is a great start to my new career – not only does the company have a diverse portfolio of projects from primary schools and leisure centres to historic renovations, but I’ve been given the chance to work within a team of established industry professionals from whom I can learn and further develop my knowledge of the construction industry in Northern Ireland.”
This appointment underlines Edmond Shipway’s commitment to promoting diversity and picking the very best talent to enhance the company’s extremely high standards. Pat Mullan, Director Edmond Shipway, Belfast commented: “We create equal opportunities for both male and female and Anna is a great addition to our team. She has the potential to become an inspiration and role model for other women beginning a career in the construction industry.”
Edmond Shipway is committed to investing in their staff and has achieved one of the highest levels of staff retention rates in the industry – and a place on the 2018 Sunday Times 100 Best Small Companies to Work For list.
