After many months of gaining momentum to build a Women’s Network for recruiter Utility People the launch finally happened on 25th January and was a huge success. I have to say its amazing being part of something that brings so many rewards to women in this industry.
This company is so much more than recruitment and finally its passion for people is really being recognised in the industry. Due to lack of diversity and many women struggling to start or build a career in Utilities, we decided that instead of just talking about the issue, something needed to be done. The network has been set up to help women build a career in the sector and we have designed future events, mentoring schemes and offer practical support to meet their needs.
I am currently working hard to build motion on the website we have created for them and lots of blogs are being written from all walks of life the industry. The support has been overwhelming and I’m excited to organise the next event in April.
