Success at Engineering Construction Industry Training & Development Awards 2017


Congratulations to Jacobs' Sam Malone and Kathryn Bremner who recently won awards in the Individual Delivery of Learning and Graduate Learner of the Year categories respectively at the Engineering Construction Industry Training & Development Awards 2017 in the U.K.

Hosted by the Engineering Construction Industry Training Board (ECITB), the Awards consist of nine categories recognizing and celebrating individuals, companies and providers for their commitment and achievement to training and development in the engineering & construction industry.

Congratulations also go to our three finalists: George Rowe shortlisted for National Apprentice of the Year; and Kim Briggs and Samantha Newton for the Women in Engineering category.

Jacobs Graduate Mechanical Engineer Kathryn Bremner joined the company in 2015 and has worked on a variety of petrochemical projects across the U.K. whilst on Jacobs’ Graduate Development Program. "I am honored to be chosen by the ECITB for the graduate learner award. I enjoy a challenge and wanted a career where I can solve real world problems to improve people’s lives. Everything we do in Jacobs has a purpose – going out to see something I’ve designed now installed on site is a highlight for me.  Every day is a fresh learning opportunity."

Jacobs Learning & Development Consultant Sam Malone program manages Jacobs’ induction process and the Leadership Foundation in the U.K., and said: "Winning the Individual Delivery of Learning  award means a lot to me. At Jacobs I have had the opportunity to explore opportunities and grow in my role, and really enjoy providing training design and delivery."

"My career path has never been ‘set’ and I have always been open to new opportunities," said Samantha Newton, UK GID Manager with Jacobs’ Petroleum & Chemicals business and Fellow of the Institution of Chemical Engineers (FICHemE). "I didn’t ‘choose’ my current role, as much as formulate a new role based on a business requirement to improve the volume of GID activities executed on UK projects. I also contribute to a variety of initiatives important to our people growth, including lunch and learn training, mentoring activities and chairing our Inclusion Committee.

"My journey with Jacobs has been both challenging and fulfilling, and has provided me with detailed insight in our global business and the opportunity to build strong relationships with our people across the business."
