Caroline Sullivan – HSQE Manager


Throughout my career I have worked in the construction industry, counting Carillion, Costain, Morgan Sindall and NG Bailey amongst my previous employers.  I started focusing on quality over 20 years ago, when it was the BS 5750 standard and then took on health, safety and environmental also.  During the last 10 years I have been responsible for all compliance within the companies I have worked for, incorporating HSQE, contractual obligations, and customer relationships. I also led teams and companies in relation to all compliance matters, and supported achieve right first time within the projects.  In recent years I specialised and worked nationwide within the Nuclear industry.

I decided to make the move to Waitings because of the staff … having first met Adrian and Bob and then the general friendliness of everyone. I got a very positive feeling from the people I met and saw within the whole company during my visit, and it convinced me it was the right move.  You can have a good job but it is the people who make the job. I also knew I could make a difference to the business.

I am responsible for all health, safety, environmental and quality aspects for Waitings. Whether this be undertaking inspections, reviewing the management system, or participating in preparing or reviewing tender information and presentations, my role covers it all.

I am going to enjoy moving the management system forwards to meet the new standards and ensuring continued compliance throughout the company. I am also looking forward to growing with the company in the years to come and working with the people who make the job, for me.
