Rebecca Walker joins our team as Estimator

Yee Group is pleased to announce the appointment of Rebecca Walker, from Barton under Needwood, who joins the in-house team as an Estimator, at their Granary Wharf Offices in Burton.
 
With nine years’ experience in electrical contracting, Rebecca was plunged in at-the-deep-end, being one of only a handful of female electrical apprentices in Burton on Trent, when she first launched her career.
 
Early exposure to all the key elements of electrical contracting provided her with the ‘best training that was available’. And, critically importantly in this increasingly technology-led sector of construction, has provided a firm foundation for her career.
 

“Amongst all of the candidates for this role, Rebecca stood out from what was an excellent shortlist”, added Yee Group MD, Simon Chapman.

“She brings special skills gained whilst learning on-the-tools; and that is the key asset that we value in this company”.

“Rebecca joins our team at an important time for this business as it continues to grow in Staffordshire and the East and West Midlands with current contracts with industrial, commercial and public sector clients”. 

 


Her responsibilities include surveying and estimating for all types of electrical contracts and ensuring these projects are managed and delivered effectively for clients of Yee Group.

“Most electrical contracts deliver solutions to existing issues; for example, upgrading lighting installations in a warehouse. Usually, there will be several ways to deliver what the client requires. However, the first approach investigated with them may not necessarily be the most suitable for future requirements or upcoming legislation”. 

Working with her colleagues, Rebecca will be developing tailored solutions to suit each client’s particular needs and budget. This approach enables the company to work in close cooperation with its customers and understand their needs across all their buildings’ critical services.

“The benefits to both parties are often over-looked in the urgency to get the works started”, agreed Simon Chapman 

“We are delighted with the calibre of new blood joining our business. The insights and experience they collectively bring to Yee Group are continually giving us a competitive-edge”, he continued.

Outside of work, Rebecca enjoys family walks with her husband and young daughter in the Peak District, and on Cannock Chase. Her daughter loves animals, so taking her to farms is also a favourite.
