Commercial Director Claire Mullan started with esc 8 years ago as a Bid Writer and has progressed through the company to her current role. Claire’s bid successes include the Waterfront Convention Centre, Hillsborough Castle & Gardens Visitor Facilities, Canterbury Christ Church University STEM Building, Basildon University Hospital & Broomfield Hospital, South West College Erne Campus and Queens Quay Redevelopment.
“Tendering for new projects is maybe one of the most satisfying jobs in the world because you work extremely hard completing the tender and within a relatively short time frame you find out if all the hard work has paid off. esc’s wealth of experience across diverse sectors and the great team who constantly deliver makes the bid writing process easier.”
As Commercial Director, Claire’s also involved in the general running of the business, making new contacts and developing relationships with partner organisations.
“At esc I have the opportunity to work on some of the most iconic projects in N.Ireland and the UK whilst also working with an extremely down to earth bunch of people. Everyone supports each other 100%; it really is a lovely place to work – every day is challenging, different and fun!”
As a woman in construction Claire is always inspired by other women breaking ground in the industry.
“Recently my colleague Anna McMullan told me she was chairing a meeting as Project Manager and when she looked around the room every design team member and client representative at the table was a woman – that was pretty inspiring!”
When Claire’s not working she loves to be outside – whether that’s working in the garden or swimming in the sea.
“I also used to sing in a choir but now that I have a little 1 year old boy the only performances are of Disney musical numbers!”
