ACR Journal talks to senior sales and applications engineer Lisa-Jayne Cook, a member of the Women in RACHP steering committee, who recently moved from Aqua Group to J&E Hall.
What was your first job?
My first job was secured through Fareport Training, an apprenticeship/work placement training organisation. I was placed as an office junior/sales support at Bonwyke. This was my introduction into the world of building services, with a leading UK wholesaler and installer of protective window film. It was here that I built the foundations for my future career, completing my modern apprenticeships in Information Technology and Customer Services.
Each candidate showcased their achievements, highlighting the contribution to the company for whom they had been working. The judging panel acknowledged the significant impact made by Lizzie during her YINI placement with Bristol based refrigeration and testing house, ECH Engineering.
Jane Gartshore, the well-respected co-owner of the consultancy and training firm, Cool Concerns, has been included on the Daily Telegraph's 'Top 50 Women in Engineering' list.
The list is part of the National Women in Engineering Day campaign which recognises women making a difference in the world of engineering. Jane's inclusion recognises the importance of air conditioning and refrigeration as a professional career choice in engineering.
Engineer, Emma England, won the 'Best of British' prize at the Semta Skills Awards at The Hilton Park Hotel in London recently.
