Elmleigh Welcomes Sherrie Williams as a Project Engineer

This week we’re saying hello to Sherrie Williams, our newest Project Engineer. After choosing her career path in electrical engineering, Sherrie worked in various roles within the quarry and plant hire sectors before choosing a role that would provide the challenge she craved. At Elmleigh, we’re delighted to be able to offer that opportunity and look forward to having Sherrie on the team!

How did you get into the electrical installation industry?

I come from a family of tradesmen and have always wanted to have a trade. As soon as I could, at 16, I went to technicial college and did some background research on various trades. Electrical Engineering really appealed to me and was a natural progression. I did some work experience and my mind was made up, I was going to become an electrician!

What was the number one reason you joined Elmleigh?

Elmleigh is one of the market leaders for installing automation systems in the food and drink manufacturing industry and they have an impressive portfolio, to say the least. After being in the quarry and plant hire sector for 18 years I was ready for a change. I really wanted a role that would challenge me and I could make my own, and the position of Project Engineer makes that possible. I love the fact that I can see the project through from conception to completion and the daily challenges that each project brings.  The fact that Elmleigh is a family run business with great company values was the icing on the cake for me, so when I was offered the position I jumped at the chance.

Which aspect of the job as a Project Engineer are you most excited about?  

The wide range of projects that I’m able to get involved in and the challenges that each job brings.  I’m looking forward to enhancing my existing skills with the new ones that I will gain as time progresses.

What industry qualifications have you got or are working towards?

I have my Level 3 in Electrical Installations and SSSTS H&S qualification. I am looking forward to gaining my AM2 and passing the 18th Edition exam.

Tell us about an average day in the electrical installation industry, if there is one!

An average day, well one of the things I love so much about the role is that there really isn’t an average day! One day I could be on site quoting for a job or meeting clients and the next making various site visits to jobs that I’m looking after. Checking on works, fixing any issues that may arise and making sure that the client is satisfied with how things are progressing.

What keeps you busy when you are not at work?

When I’m not at work I am a family girl, I spend my time walking with my partner and our bulldog Bruce, visiting my family in Leicester (I have 6 nieces and 3 nephews, so they keep me busy) and I also enjoy spending time with my friends.
