HSB team share views on International Women in Engineering Day 2022


Authored by HSB

As part of the global awareness campaign, members of our engineering teams provide their views on their careers in engineering

It is possible to transition into engineering management roles using transferable business skills in projects and change, just as I did! I hope my own experience will encourage women to kickstart a career in engineering - an industry in which women are not always sufficiently represented - or to have the confidence to make the same step change I did.” - Paula Homan, HSB Director of Engineering Services (Engineering Division)

“From working in the office at HSB, to going to college on day release and completing my HNC in Mechanical Engineering, to working as a HSB Engineer Surveyor, and now as Technical Training and Compliance Manager, I’d encourage any women to choose a career in the engineering industry.” - Rebecca Tierney, HSB Technical Training and Compliance Manager (Engineering)
