Hollie is a Trainee Design Manager for Bowmer + Kirkland Ltd, working for their North East Region. She joined the company straight after graduating from the University of Liverpool in 2018 with a BA Hons degree in Architecture.
After university, Hollie wanted to expand her construction knowledge further and knew that a career in design management was for her. Even though she has only recently joined the industry, Hollie has worked on several projects, from Higher Education/University buildings, to hotels and commercial office structures. Hollie works on site, coordinating the design process for the site team, subcontractors and consultants, hosting design team meetings and highlighting associated design risks and coming up with alternatives solutions. Working on site means Hollie gets hands on experience of many construction projects and gets to see the drawings come to life.
Hollie started attending NAWIC events shortly after joining Bowmer + Kirkland but has become increasingly more involved over the past year, officially joining the committee, becoming a mentor for our Northumbria University Mentoring scheme and taking on the role of our Social Media Coordinator. As a CITB ambassador, Career Ready Mentor and North East Enterprise Advisor, Hollie is passionate about helping us encouraging more young females into the industry.
