A day in the life of some of our team

Hear from Fiona about her role and VINCI and how her DofE has helped her in her working life.

Fiona Weir

Job title Trainee technician

DofE level Gold Award holder

“I heard about the DofE through a colleague at VINCI Construction UK who was undertaking theirs. I thought it would be good experience to improve my confidence, learn new skills and meet new people within the company.

I have enjoyed all the aspects my DofE, including the volunteering in which I joined a hospital radio station. I undertook numerous physical activities and fundraising in which my team raised over £1,500 for charity in just 10 weeks through a half marathon, quiz night/raffle and bag packing.

My DofE has given me the confidence to progress within the company and the inspiration to continue progressing within the industry.

As part of my DofE, becoming a Construction Ambassador for Construction Skills has been very rewarding. As part of my volunteering I have gone round schools and careers fairs promoting the industry and encouraging children from as young as 6 up to 18 to consider this industry as a career.”
