Working towards a better balance in engineering.

Costain is a national infrastructure solutions provider and has a long and accomplished history over the last hundred and fifty years.

Having recently become a Chwarae Teg Supporter, their work will hopefully lead to more women inspiring to management roles.

In addition to Costain’s Schools Programme they’re also working closely with the Institution of Civil Engineering in order to raise awareness and encourage more women to pursue a career in engineering.

Our company objective – to develop our female staff, is closely aligned to the objectives set by the Welsh Government who support the Chwarae Teg initiative.

Work experience to apprenticeships. Routes into Costain:

Bruce Richards, Project Director, Costain.

— “Costain as an employer recognises the importance of developing and supporting its workforce which is key to project delivery and organisational success.

It seeks to employ from a wide range of cultures and skill-sets and as well as providing equal opportunity for all.

The company is mindful that the balance between men and women in management roles across the organization is far from equal, and the company is working with Chwarae Teg to address the imbalance in South Wales.”

Looking to gain a Management Qualification and Team Leading Skills?

Costain are currently participating in the Chwarae Teg Agile Nation 2 Programme. There are ten female members of staff currently on the programme and hopefully this will help them progress into senior levels of management.

Through our Agile Nation 2 Programme, women working in construction and engineering can take part in a comprehensive, fully funded, career development programme.
