Durkan are delighted to announce the promotion of ‘rising star’ Ed Afolabi to Assistant Site Manager at Phase 1a Southmere project in Thamesmead.
An engineering graduate and Bexley resident, Ed was struggling to kick off his career in construction management until Peabody Reconnect team put him in touch. Ed shone at interview and won the opportunity of a start as a trainee project manager.
Ed quickly established himself as a talented and popular member of the Durkan team and his consistent performance has resulted in this well-deserved step-up. We are confident that this is just the start of a long and distinguished career for Ed and wish him all the best for the future.
“Getting my first break in construction management was really difficult without a network of contacts in the industry – despite achieving a really good construction related degree. When Peabody contacted me about the opportunity to join Durkan as a trainee I was over the moon. Since joining the team my practical skills and knowledge have increased dramatically and it is great to play an active role in regenerating my own local community. Getting this promotion is the icing on the cake and I look forward to an exciting career in construction management.”
