There are few businesses with the diversity of roles, skills and expertise to rival ours. Every one of Keltbray's 2,000 employees plays an important role in delivering some of the biggest construction projects in the UK.
Joanna Walsh is a Site Operative for Keltbray who came to the business having had a difficult start in her career. Having left education at fifteen, she found a facilities maintenance job with OCS which she enjoyed. Joanna then started building up her experience by working in a clothes shop and a Travelodge, and was eventually sent by the Job Centre to the agency Good People, who introduced Joanna to Keltbray. She started her induction the very next day.

“After studying Criminology, I never thought I would end up working in construction. My background before Keltbray was working for ex-offender organisations and helping them gain employment. During this time, I worked with Keltbray on a few programmes and was always impressed by their commitment to supporting diversity. Now I am lucky enough to be on the other side as Group Social Sustainability Manager and be able to work with a number of organisations and charities that support a wide range of people.
Social Value was a relatively new term when I started but has grown in significance, bringing its challenges along the way. I look forward to continuing to drive Social Sustainability.”
