Who are thinkproject UK?
thinkproject UK’s CEMAR platform provides simple to use contract management Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions for NEC and other forms. In addition to contract management we offer an intuitive Change Control Toolset (CCT) providing clients a simple way to track internal programme change.
We are part of the thinkproject group, a global leader in construction intelligence. Our digital technologies unlock the potential of people and information to help construct a better world. Since 2000, we have helped our customers deliver over 10,000 projects in the construction and engineering sector.
What projects / schemes / initiatives to support women’s recruitment, retention and progression in STEM are thinkproject UK involved in?
In the last two years thinkproject UK’s workforce has doubled in size and women make up a third of that team with responsibilities in account management, business management and technical roles, including our own Stephanie Burt, Software Support Specialist, whose profile is featured on WISE’s My Skills My Life platform. We actively pursue a policy of increasing the gender balance across our business.
Further to this, apprentices has been central to our growth plans with Marjona Halimova, one of our Software Test Analysts who came to the business as an apprentice, winning Gloucestershire’s Apprentice of the Year award in 2016.
Marjona says about WISE: “I feel that membership of the WISE campaign will help more women break through the ‘glass ceiling’ and reach their full potential. As more women progress and reach the top jobs in science, technology and engineering, they will act as role models for the younger generation thus increasing progression.”
Why did thinkproject UK join WISE?
“thinkproject UK has joined the WISE campaign as we recognise that there is a significant lack of gender equality in STEM industries and talented people from all backgrounds are essential to improve our business, our service to customers and help impact on a wider positive change to society.”
