Mark Robinson from Esh-MWH has been crowned ‘Trainee of the Year’ at this year’s Generation4Change Awards 2018.
Judges were looking for exceptional candidates who are currently undertaking construction & the built environment work related training, which includes short courses, industry recognised training and personal development. Judges were looking for exemplars that stand out from the crowd with outstanding achievements and commitment to training & development.
Mark who is a Site Agent, left school with 13 GCSE’s. With a keen interest in core STEM subjects, Mark decided to go straight into the working environment and joined Carillion as a Trainee Engineer in 2006. Since then he’s progressed through the ranks, currently working as Site Agent for Esh-MWH, managing two of the most challenging projects to date.
In his personal time, Mark is currently working towards a BTEC Diploma in Leadership & Management which demonstrates his commitment to training and personal development. Esh-MWH is a joint venture between Esh Construction and MWH, now part of Stantec, which was formed in 2015 to deliver Northumbrian Water’s Water and Wastewater Infrastructure Framework. Mark has embraced Northumbrian Water’s key vision and values demonstrating that he’s Customer Focused, Results Driven, Ethical and Creative, working together as One Team.
Evidence includes championing collaborative Lunch & Learn CPD events, as well as organising bespoke legacy projects. The West Brunton Farm legacy project involved redeveloping an existing pond, turning it into an outdoor classroom for zero cost through collaboration with the local supply chain. The Gosforth Fire Station Legacy Project allowed a local Fire Station to undertake a live training exercise on-site, which resulted in Mark and the team receiving an exceptional 5/5 in their Health & Safety audit.
