Catherine Campbell has been with AG for 5 months and is the Associate Engineer in our Technical Dept.
Why did you decide to follow your chosen career path?
I studied Civil Engineering and Environmental Engineering at University and always had an interest in the research and development side of concrete. I have studied possible ways to advance the concrete industry further into the environmentally friendly side of things as it’s becoming much more important, and I wanted to carry this research further in a workplace environment.
What does your day to day job entail?
As I work with AG and Queens, I work between both premises. Most of my time is spent at AG Dungannon, carrying out research towards my KTP Programme, however, I also attend lectures in Queens once a week and carry out practical work in the QUB lab.
What do you enjoy about working at AG?
The thing I enjoy most about working at AG is that everyone on the workforce gets along well and makes you feel welcome and comfortable. AG are very focused on staff’s well-being as one of their main values, which I think every work place should, as it then improves your working ability and progress, and this reflects when in contact with customers.
What would you say to someone considering joining the team at AG?
Joining a new team in any workplace is a scary thing, however there isn’t anything to worry about with AG as they are so welcoming!
I think it’s a great opportunity to have the chance to work with AG as it’s a smaller company, therefore you meet everyone in each team and build relationships with everyone including the highest management level, so it has a more personal touch and you feel more appreciated than if you were in a bigger company.
I came to AG after university, afraid that my lack of experience would be a problem, however, every single person that I’ve met in AG has assured me that if I ever have a problem and need advice and guidance that they’re there to help, and I feel that’s the best thing a company can offer you.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
During the week I like to go to the gym or a yoga class after work, before sitting down to dinner and relaxing in the evenings.
I really love to travel and to see different places, so I try to get away at the weekends with friends and family as much as I can whether it be in Ireland, UK or further away!
