Seven employees in CIOB Training Partner ENGIE’s Hebburn office have now achieved MCIOB status

ENGIE’s Hebburn office is celebrating the professional success of its team with seven employees of the CIOB training partner achieving Chartered membership.

In addition, Paul Young, operations manager for ENGIE Places and Communities in the North East, has just recently stepped down as the chairman for CIOB’s Newcastle Hub.

He said: “I’ve had a great two years as chairman for the local division of the CIOB and it’s doubly pleasing for me that as I step down from that post, I’m able to celebrate the fact that ENGIE is now a CIOB Training Partner and seven of my peers and colleagues have been accredited as fully Chartered members (MCIOB).

“This accolade is a great achievement for the company, as it marks the highest levels of competence and professionalism, providing assurance to clients and other professionals procuring our services.
It’s also a huge triumph for our colleagues in their own career development as the construction standard is recognised around the world.”

Congratulations to Jonathan Horner, operations manager; Anthony Carr, planner; David Kinleyside, site manager; Simon Watson; project manager (pre-commencement); David Watson, construction manager and Barry Metters, construction manager, who are pictured with Mark Kearney, business improvement director and Lee Francis, area director.

Commenting on receiving his CIOB membership, Horner said: “Chartership is a recognition of ongoing development and within the construction industry it’s important to stay ahead of change, to ensure we grow as professionals, raise standards within our organisations, both at a corporate and site level and demonstrate to our clients that we have the skills, knowledge and experience to deliver work safely and efficiently.”
