Construction candidate seeks recruitment support to release project management ambitions
Leigh Bowen’s career in construction began with a job as a Duct Fitters Mate, back in 2008. Showing an independent spirit from the outset, Leigh then invested a lot of his own personal time into gaining various credentials in his field. That training paved the way for his trajectory into construction management.
Based in London, Leigh had been freelancing as a contractor for some time. Enjoying the autonomy, he decided he wanted to move into project management. Running his own jobs really appealed to Leigh – and he had the skills and experience to make that career move a success.
Career progression is particularly important to Leigh but couldn’t see a way to achieve his full potential in a contracting scenario. He realised that joining a company on a permanent basis would be the best route to turning his aspirations into reality.
Job security was another factor driving Leigh’s career plans. Having recently become a father, he needed financial stability and the other benefits a permanent position usually offers.
