Area Construction Manager
I was a Site Manager for several housebuilders before joining Redrow in 2013, starting as a Site Manager, now working as an Area Construction Manager for our South East division. I also volunteer as a division Mental Health First- Aider.
"From day one, I’ve been really impressed with training and development here, and the training centre at Tamworth is highly professional, with a real buzz. It was one of my first experiences of the company, and I could see they really do invest in their people – and that’s certainly true with me."

I’ve been at Redrow’s North West division for five years, I’m currently working at our South Liverpool development, Allerton Gardens - and I want to inspire confidence in other women who wish to work in the industry. I started working in construction after completing a Building Surveying degree at Liverpool John Moores University, followed by a two-year graduate programme at Redrow that led to my appointment as an Assistant Site Manager across the North West.
“I’ve had so much encouragement in my construction career and I feel so proud of what I’ve managed to achieve so far. I have had to overcome a lot of self-doubt in this role due, to public stereotypes regarding women working in the industry; however, I can see women working in the industry becoming the norm, and it makes me proud to think I played a small part in getting to the stage we are at now!”
Megan Woodburn, Assistant Site Manager
One of the many things which I like about working on site is that everyday presents a new challenge and an opportunity to learn new things. I work with the Site Manager to supervise all sub-contractors and trades. A typical day for me would consist of ensuring everyone on site is signed in, carrying out site inductions, updating traffic management plan where necessary, monitoring health and safety matters, carrying out inspections, ordering materials and scheduling work to be carried out in line to reach our production targets. I have also taken on some additional responsibilities, such as Customer Care and being the Covid-19 supervisor on site.
I feel that I have made the right decision choosing Redrow. Their culture, values and support of personal development are some of the reasons. Having a strong willingness to learn makes me keen to constantly develop my skills and have been able to attend so many training courses in person and online. I am looking forward to gaining more knowledge and experience from working with different departments as part of the graduate programme. As I come to the end of the graduate programme, I can’t wait to start the next chapter with Redrow.
