Enterprise Advisor- Jordan Reese (Wilmott Dixon)

I currently work for Willmott Dixon Construction as an Assistant Social Value Manager within the West Midlands. I started as an Administration Apprentice in 2015, and then moved onto their Management Trainee scheme to begin my 4 years’ training with the company. As part of the programme, I gained various skills and knowledge about the Construction Industry, whilst completing my HNC in Construction Management at Birmingham City University. Following the completion of my HNC in 2019, I took a role within the Social Value team and began my degree in Social Sciences with the Open University, which I will be completing in June 2021.


One of the main aspects of my role is to engage with local schools to provide careers support and world of work experience for students, encouraging them to explore different careers pathways and challenging stereotypes. As a woman in Construction, I am very passionate about ensuring that young females are able to use their potential to pursue their chosen career and break down those barriers to have a successful and happy careers within the industry.


I am really looking forward to working with Holy Trinity Academy and assist in making a difference for their students.
