Meet Parker Building Supplies’ first female branch manager!
Meet Parker Building Supplies’ first female branch manager, Mary! She started at Parker Building Supplies in June 2016 as an inside sales person and has been promoted to Branch Manager at their Bexhill branch. According to the Office for National Statistics and industry surveys, approximately 27 million people were working in the United Kingdom at the end of 2016. The split between men and women was nearly 50-50. 2.3 million of people working in the UK had jobs in the construction industry but only 296,000 were women. This means the split of men to women in the construction industry is 87-13. Parker Building Supplies shared the news of their new branch manager on LinkedIn with one supporter commenting “There aren’t enough women at the top of the merchant industry, so this is a refreshing move forward.”
