KDE Ltd is thrilled to welcome a new SHEQ Manager to the team in Cheshire, Shannon Jolly. Shannon’s role will largely be responsible for the Health and Safety of our workforce and will oversee our very high standards of work whilst promoting best practices.
Following a decision in April 2017 to boost staff numbers, the KDE Directors have been working hard to ensure we have a well-structured team both in the office and out on the ground serving our clients.
Once Shannon had settled into her new role, we caught up with her to see how she’s getting on!
When you were at School what was your dream job?
I never had a dream job as such, but I did think I would make a good teacher. Funnily enough, I have a teaching and education qualification now so that I can deliver Health and Safety training – that counts as a teacher right?!
What are you most enjoying about your role?
The whole KDE team have been so warm and welcoming, they’ve really helped me feel settled only a few weeks in.
What aspect of your job excites you the most?
The great thing about my job is I can spend time in the office working on systems and procedures, but also get out on site and see how jobs are done. I like seeing the progress on a project, I’ll always learn something new talking to the engineers, which in turn helps me when I write the risk assessments for our clients.
Has anything taken you by surprise since you joined the team?
The vast amount of clients and customers we work with! Councils, Police forces, Schools and highly explosive atmospheres to name a few. I’m really excited to see the company grow, and hopefully, help – one risk assessment at a time!
We’d like to wish Shannon the best of luck with her new role!
