Meet our people

  • Shannon, Project Quantity Surveyor

    “When I was presented with the opportunity to embark on an apprenticeship in Quantity Surveying with VolkerHighways, I knew that this was the path I wanted to pursue. I am fortunate to have a great team that supports me in my professional journey. Whether it's something related to the job that we're working on together, or something that can help me grow and improve in my studies. Their guidance has been instrumental in my success, and I am grateful for their continued support.”

  • Simon, Supervisor

    “I have worked on the Medway highway term maintenance contract since 1994. I started working as an Operative on small schemes and progressed to a Charge Hand (Ganger). With further experience, I was promoted to a Supervisor in 2020. VolkerHighways has supported me throughout my career, and helped me to obtain numerous qualifications. I am now solely responsible for the drainage programme. I love the challenge of my job as each day is different, with new tasks to solve.”

  • Nick, Assistant Buyer

    “My favourite part of my role is the challenges that arise. Some can be quick and easy to resolve, whereas others need time and consideration before they are dealt with. I enjoy making business savings, allowing me to see how my role affects the business. I believe my career path is very clear with VolkerHighways. I can see where my next step is which is to become a Buyer and maybe one day, become a Director within Procurement, but I’m taking it one step at a time.”

  • Jayne, Business Support Manager

    “Since joining the business in 2010, I have had the opportunity to work in various finance and commercial roles across VolkerWessels UK. I have been able to use the skills I have learnt in my roles to overcome business challenges that present themselves, as well as support, guide and train our site commercial teams. At VolkerHighways, I enjoy working with and seeing our teams. We are friends, as well as colleagues, and its enriching to have this when we spend most of our days in a work environment.”

  • Noah, Apprentice General Operative

    “Formal education wasn’t for me. I like doing hands-on work, gaining real-life work experience, while also getting a recognised qualification. I chose an apprenticeship to help me decide what I want to do in the future. My biggest goal is to continue to learn and develop my skills to become a Supervisor with VolkerHighways.”

  • Daniel, Traffic Management Operative

    "Everyday has new and interesting experiences, seeing different places and working with many talented individuals has been a real enjoyment. When I joined the business in 2021, progression was something I was concerned about due to past situations at previous employers, but my concerns were soon muzzled. The path to progression was not only encouraged, but laid before me with a plan and direction to reach that goal!"
