On average, UK construction companies gives just 12% of board room seats to women – In April of this year, Woodford are delighted to be welcoming another woman onto the board bringing us up to 30% who hold a seat at the executive table. We recruit people across the company based on their skills, attitude and ability to do the job. In line with the Women in Leadership theme for this year, we encourage an equal future within our workplace and industry, therefore we employ, promote and upskill all of our staff members based on ability and aspiration rather than gender.
