Career Story: Lisa Heasman
Feb. 21 2019
It was actually the recruitment division that contacted me through my profile on LinkedIn and we organised a call where I was talked through the role requirements and specifications. My previous experience of being a Service Manager & Portfolio Manager in the lift and escalator industry was transferable to Bureau Veritas so I applied for the role.
The main aspect of my role is managing a Team of Engineers in the East Anglia and Kent areas, ensuring work is planned efficiently, managing priorities, ensuring production targets are met, conducting client meetings, forecasting P&L, managing area budgets and working closely with my colleagues.
One of the toughest challenges I face in my role is working with nuclear sites as they have very tight rules and different process that you have to abide by no matter what. I enjoy working alongside our clients and I have learnt quickly what our customer expectations and requirements are.
Career development is very important and BV advocates progression within the business which is one of reasons I choose to join the company.
