  • Kevin Hutchinson

Having spent nearly half his life working in the industry progressing from labouring on site to a traineeship and university; he has worked and managed schemes varying from new roads and fire stations to a whole new shopping centre in the centre of Liverpool.

    Kevin is now a National Performance Manager and having experienced much of what the industry has to offer and has become a keen enthusiast of promoting the industry as an exciting place to work for young people. Kevin grew up around construction and engineering and enjoyed studying Geography, Maths and Science, so it can be said that STEM is in his blood and civil engineering and infrastructure was his destiny.

  • William Hall

    Graduate Quantity Surveyor, Balfour Beatty

    Will started his career as a geography teacher at a secondary school, before transitioning into the construction industry in 2017. Shortly after beginning his Master’s degree in quantity surveying at Nottingham Trent University, Will was accepted as a graduate quantity surveyor (QS) for UK Construction Services at Balfour Beatty.

    Since joining Balfour Beatty as a part-time QS in January 2018, Will has had the opportunity to work on a variety of schemes including: a primary school, river flood alleviation, an offshore wind farm, and the Scarborough Cliff Stabilisation Project.

    What is Will’s favourite part of his job?

    My favourite aspect of this profession is the variety. I enjoy working on different schemes with different people – every day is really unique!

  • Cameron Dufton

    Leeds Delivery Unit Commercial Director, Balfour Beatty

    Cameron has 30 years of commercial experience working within a number of civil engineering sectors including: public realm, highways, coastal, flood, wind energy, power and industrial. Cameron is responsible for commercial delivery of Balfour Beatty’s Leeds Delivery Unit, where he works closely with the Operational and Managing Director to ensure each project operates profitably.

    Cameron is a key member of Balfour Beatty’s work winning team and in his role, he engages with customers to ensure they are informed on the project’s financial position. He proactively assists with any issues that require resolution, focusing on delivering value for money to secure repeat business from Balfour Beatty’s customers. Cameron effectively manages risk and ensures his team of 35 Balfour Beatty commercial staff has the required training and development to deliver cost certainty to customers.

    How did Cameron get started in the industry?  

    At 17, I started in the construction industry as a labourer on the Scalby Mills Pumping Station project in Scarborough. A trainee Quantity Surveyor role became available on the project, which I applied for and was accepted. The company enrolled me into a college day release programme, where I attained an ONC, HNC and BSc in Civil Engineering over the following years. I worked 4 days a week on site and spent 1 day a week at college, and I found this a great way to balance theoretical learning and on-the-job training. During this time I also worked on the construction of Scarborough’s SeaLife Centre.

    What does Cameron enjoy most about his current role?

    I enjoy working in a dynamic and exciting industry with teams of great people, delivering incredibly interesting, important and diverse projects that support the communities we work in.

  • Liam Cowell

    Hydraulics Apprenticeship Fitter, CAN

    Liam has always been interested in manual work and using his hands to create or maintain something. His favourite subject at school was product design, which included wood work and welding.

    Liam knew that 6th form wasn’t for him, so he started looking into apprenticeships that would allow him to learn on the job, and begin earning money immediately. In order to gain a place on an apprenticeship, Liam went to college to study mechanical engineering. Whilst studying, his college helped him secure a position with CAN as a Hydraulics Apprenticeship Fitter.

    Liam is learning the basics of hydraulics on CAN’s specialist drill rigs, and works regularly with engines on power packs. This can mean anything from servicing an engine, to stripping it down. Liam is currently a year and a half into the apprenticeship, for which he gains a qualification each year. At the end of the 4-year apprenticeship, Liam will have a Level 3 NVQ in mechanical engineering.
