Ambitious Meghan Ballantyne is more than doing her bit for women and young people in construction with a step up the ladder at Procast.
At the age of just 23, and after only a year with the group, she has been promoted to the position of Retrofit Services Manager.
Meghan graduated with a first in International Business at Glasgow Caledonian University and, in her own words, decided “to do something that friends weren’t doing” by going into the construction sector.
Since joining us, she has filled roles including E Assessor , Retrofit Assessor, Customer Relations Office and Eco Delivery Manager.
So she is ready to take the step up into the world of management and will probably undertake further studies at college or university via day-release programmes.
Meghan said: “At Procast, you are a person – not a number, like at other firms. It’s great that they want to invest in their staff.
“I’m glad I did not follow the career paths taken by my peers at the Caledonian University and have been vindicated by the recognition I have been shown here.”
Procast Managing Director Derek Innes added: “We are very proud of Meghan. She has only been here for one year and she has achieved a lot – now she is stepping up into a management role
“At Procast, we want to invest in intelligence and in youth – if you have the appetite to succeed, opportunities will come your way.
“A big part of this is helping women get to the top in construction and to show them that their voice counts.”< back
