Meet Stacey McCaughey - Women in Construction Week 2024


Meet our National Account Supervisor Stacey McCaughey! Stacey has been a part of Scot JCB for over 6 years and works with customers from all over the UK.

 

1. Tell us about your role at Scot JCB and what a typical day looks likes?

My role is national account supervisor and my day is extremely varied which is one of the reasons I enjoy it as no two days are the same. I am in charge of our national accounts team which involves ensuring that all service jobs are covered all over the UK for our national account customers and making sure our customers are happy. Day to day involves problem solving, account queries and providing support to my team to ensure the customer is happy. 

 

2. Why did you want to work in the construction industry?

My previous experience came from working in service in the car industry which is why I accepted this role as both environments are challenging but day to day is varied and fast paced which I enjoy. 

  

3. How does it feel being a women working in a historically male dominated industry?

Working in a predominately male environment can be challenging and rewarding at the same time, I don’t have technical engineering experience and my job requires me to deal with jobs daily and that can be challenging as there can be times that I have encountered customers who want to deal with a male colleague as they believe that women can’t provide the same service. I find that my male colleagues are supportive and helpful when requesting assistance or technical knowledge that me or my team don’t have and that allows good working relationships to develop. 

 

4.   What do you think businesses could do to attract more women into the industry?

I think advertising showing other women are working in key roles in their business and are supported the same as their male counterparts is a good way to attract women into construction. A lot of advertising is geared towards men but if women are in positions that is predominately male dominated then it would have a positive effect in women choosing to try roles like these. 

 

5.  What advice would you give to women interested in a career in the construction industry?

I would suggest that they go for it the industry has moved on from construction being male dominated and they may be able to bring something new to the table.
