Rosey has been shortlisted for the Rising Star
award at the Construction News Awards 2018
As part of the entry process, Rosey, who joined RSK in 2011 as a graduate geoenvironmental engineer, had to outline what made her stand out in 2017. A successful year in Rosey’s already impressive career, 2017 saw Rosey supervise the construction of a Textomur retaining wall in Luton, UK, for a large redevelopment project. She also became the health and safety lead for RSK’s UK contract with Shell, an invaluable role, and has led by example, training RSK’s new graduates on-site in the fundamentals of site work and data collection. This dedication to her role and her commitment to the construction industry saw her named Best Woman Consultant at the Women in Construction and Engineering Awards in May 2017.
The finalists were judged on their all-round ability, their enthusiasm for construction and their ambitions. Rosey, who is a STEM ambassador, is passionate about encouraging the younger generation to join the engineering sector, and leads on the importance of promoting gender diversity within the industry by visiting schools to promote women in construction. She recently visited her former high school to present as a guest speaker, and she hopes that the industry will attract more female professionals.
For the next stage of the judging process, Rosey will deliver a 10-minute presentation to the panel of judges, which will be made up of clients, consultants and industry experts, to demonstrate her passion and understanding of the construction industry.
“2017 was a challenging yet exciting year for me,” Rosey comments. “I am delighted to have made the Rising Star shortlist for the Construction News Awards 2018, as this will help me improve and help RSK to promote diversity in engineering to an even wider audience. I am really looking forward to the judging process and to meeting my fellow nominees.”
The winner will be announced at the prestigious awards ceremony, which is the largest in the construction industry and will be held at Grosvenor House Hotel in London, UK, on 12 July. This year, there was a record number of entries, with over 200 entrants completing 405 entries across the 20 award categories.
