The Electrical Industry and construction in general has been predominately male dominated for many years however this is gradually changing.
In 2019 statistics showed that only 1% of electricians training in the UK were female.
We had the absolute pleasure of having a female electrical trainee join our site team for onsite work experience this month at a school refurbishment project we were delivering for North Tyneside Council.
Rebecca proved herself to be professional, well equipped and got involved from the second she arrived on site, asking plenty of questions and ensuring she practiced her installation skills and took on board any suggestions.
Our site supervisor and electricians could not praise her work ethic enough and really enjoyed working along side her.
We are sure she has a bright future ahead of her in the Electrical trade and we wish her the best luck for her future at University, having completed her electrical studies at East Durham College.
