We have a great team here at Genco with a wide range of skills and experience. This month we’re catching up with finance officer, Lucy Roebuck.
Sharing her insight into the finance side of the construction and electrical contracting sector, Lucy gives us her tips on the advantages of undertaking an apprenticeship, alongside the benefits and fulfilment of working for a more local company instead of larger organisations, and the low-down of life here at Genco.
Take it away Lucy…
Tell us about your role at Genco.
I joined the Genco team in 2019 having worked previously in other finance roles in similar sectors, but for much larger companies. Working for a local company like Genco has been much more fulfilling for me. Although I primarily do finance there is also plenty of other tasks that I’m able to get involved with such as HR.
Can you think of one thing about working at Genco that others should know?
Just that it’s a genuinely lovely place to work.
Tell us a misconception that people often have about working in this sector.
People usually assume the construction and electrical contracting sector is a male led environment. Although we have more men working on-site at Genco, there are a lot of women working behind-the-scenes who have a good knowledge of the industry too.
Tell us your favourite thing about working at Genco.
Honestly… we get a nice early finish on a Friday!
What’s your advice to people who might like to do a job like yours?
There are so many apprenticeships out there now for those looking to get into finance roles. It’s not something that was available to me when I was first starting out in my career, but it’s the best way to learn whilst working and earning. I would advise anyone who is offered the opportunity to take it.
What do you like to do when you’re not at work?
When I’m not at work, I can either be found at the gym lifting some heavy weights or hanging out with my fiancé and our three cats. I’m always busy and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
