Who you are and your current role
Jack Brayford, Business Development Manager at Kier Construction.
Your route into the Industry
I never considered a career in construction until my third year at University and a marketing placement opportunity came up at a local construction company. From there, I developed from marketing in to business development and a few years later, joined Kier Construction to initially lead their North East regional business development before my current role looking after the North East and Yorkshire.
Your involvement with G4C and how G4C has helped you in your current career
I joined G4C in 2015. I attended one of the summer BBQs, not knowing a single person. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and shortly after, joined the committee. I was then appointed co-chair in 2017 and helped to develop the presence of the group, networking with fellow aspirational future leaders, and significantly developed my wider knowledge and understanding of our sector and North East developments. G4C has given me the experience at the start of my career to become involved in boards, lead a committee of talented individuals, develop my network and understanding of construction. It has been a crucial part of my development and I would thoroughly recommend to anyone who is looking to develop their careers as a future leader of the built environment industry.
