Lauren started her planning and scheduling career straight from school after gaining a Project Controls apprenticeship with Leonardo Helicopters. During her eight years with the company, Lauren spent many of them as Lead Scheduler, whilst attaining a Business Management Degree.
In 2017, Lauren moved to DE&S, where she spent five years in Lead Scheduler and Project Controls Manager roles within various teams to broaden her knowledge whilst attaining a number of APM qualifications in Project Controls. As a very people-orientated person, Lauren saw VIMA as the perfect opportunity to progress in her career.
On her appointment, Lauren commented, “It was very important to me, to work for a company who had the same values as myself; a strong work ethos whilst not forgetting the personal side of strong people skills. I am amazed at how evident these ethics are with VIMA – they shine through so brightly!’
Outside of work, Lauren is a registered foster carer with five of her own children. They all enjoy spending most of their time riding or caring for their five horses or at the local beach – both come rain or shine!
