Galliford Try appoints new Inclusion lead

by Liam Turner

Large UK-based construction firm Galliford Try has appointed Jackie Anyango as its new Inclusion lead.

Jackie, who has more than seven years’ experience in construction, will lead the Group’s EDI (Equity, Diversity and Inclusion) strategy, supporting the development and implementation of EDI policies and procedures and formulating education and training programmes to ensure the organisation remains an inclusive workplace for all.  

The role includes leading a business-wide EDI steering group that assists in upskilling key individuals across the group and providing support to all areas of the business where required, including engagement of the business’s supply chain.

Jackie, who joins the business from Skanska, is the latest addition to Galliford Try’s growing Inclusion team.

Her appointment comes on the back of Galliford Try’s achievement of the Bronze standard in its first review under the Clear Assured scheme, a globally recognised standard for inclusion.

Vikki Skene, HR director and executive board member for Galliford Try, said: “Building a diverse, inclusive, and authentic workplace is an essential element of our Sustainable Growth Strategy.

“Jackie’s appointment, provides us with a depth of knowledge and expertise in all aspects of strategic and operational EDI activity and practical solutions to help us deliver our aspirations.”

Jackie added: “I’m excited to join Galliford Try and build on the existing EDI work that has already begun.

“I look forward to partnering with our people and supply chain on this crucial area of work, which is critical to the success of the business, and ultimately driving more creative and innovative solutions.”
