Sam Vickers – Project Manager
Employed since. January 2016.
Describe your role. I started in a site manager role two and a half years ago, having never built a distribution warehouse before, and as Winvic is widely known as the UK’s ‘shed specialist’ I underwent a steep, but enjoyable learning curve. I became a project manager in 2017 and I’m currently working on a scheme with multiple warehouses. I hope I will continue to manage projects in the industrial sector and progress to a more senior role as I become even more experienced.
Describe working at Winvic in 3 words. Enjoyable, friendly and challenging.
Why construction? I couldn’t think of anything worse than a repetitive job, and when I looked at different career paths I realised construction could offer me a role where no two days are the same.
