In our latest edition of the Barnsley Working Together, we caught up with Administrator Chloe Goddard to hear about her role at The Glass Works.
What attracted you to Henry Boot?
My dad is currently one of the senior project managers at Henry Boot and has worked within the company for 15 years. He has always praised Henry Boot for being inclusive and welcoming and since starting with The Glass Works team I have experienced the great community atmosphere ¬first-hand and have been made to feel comfortable from day one.
What do you do outside of work?
Outside of work I love to socialise and catch up with friends (especially at the pub!). I also love to travel as often as I can. Spending three months backpacking around South East Asia last year has really grown my passion for discovering new places and cultures.
What’s it like to work on The Glass Works?
It’s great! It's really interesting to see how this huge project is coming together. It is also fascinating for me - coming from a non-construction background - to experience the vast extent of work that goes into the creation of new retail and leisure destinations.
How would you describe your job to a child?
I organise the pictures that tell the builders what to build.
What do you enjoy most about your role?
I enjoy having a variety of different tasks as it makes each day different and keeps things interesting. A very rewarding and enjoyable part of my role is getting involved with the Better Barnsley Bond and our charitable giving, where we work to support charities and local community groups, often providing them with funding or equipment.
Being local, do you find the work you’re doing in Barnsley is more fulfilling?
Knowing the finished result will be something close to home and somewhere we will be able to utilise regularly definitely makes the job more exciting. I think this new lease of life was something Barnsley needed and will be welcomed by the residents.
