New 'Careers in Plant' training programme recruit Tina Wiseman starts on the A14 operating 30 ton ADT

One of our latest recruits is Tina Wiseman who joined Lynch in September 2018 as part of our 'Careers in Plant' training programme.

After qualifying from her training course Tina was placed on the A14 project on one of our 30 ton Bell ADTs. Working up to 12 hour shifts, six days a week, Tina and her 30 ton ADT has been running from the batching plant to feed the paver which is working to lay the sub-base for the new motorway.

“I am really enjoying working for Lynch and so very grateful that the company gave me a chance to change my career later in life. I thought as a woman it would be a real struggle in what’s normally seen as a male-driven industry. However, I have been really surprised how helpful everyone has been” commented Tina. She added the 'Careers in Plant' training programme was really great and a perfect induction to the plant industry. Lynch has supported me every step of the way and I’m really looking forward to further training in the new year. I’m so grateful to all my trainers, mentors and Operator Supervisors for all the help they have given me so far".

Lynch Operations Director Merrill Lynch said "It’s great to see Tina excelling on the A14 project and it’s very encouraging that we are already reaping the benefits from our 'Careers in Plant' training programme. As a company Lynch is always looking at different ways to attract new operators, especially women into the construction arena and hopefully Tina will become a great role model for other women to follow in her footsteps"
