Training Manager, Gemma Mineur, finalist in Swansea Bay Business Awards 2022


We are extremely proud and delighted that our Training Manager, Gemma Mineur, was named as one of the finalists at this year’s Swansea Bay Business Awards.

The awards cover the Swansea Bay City Region, incorporating the local authority areas of Swansea, Neath Port Talbot, Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire and celebrate the achievements of the talented and successful individuals, companies and entrepreneurs that work across the region.

The awards feature 11 individual categories with two overall awards given in addition for overall Company of the Year and a Judges’ Choice Award for a firm that has demonstrated exceptional growth.

The winners were revealed at a prestigious awards dinner event at the Brangwyn Hall in Swansea on September 15.

Gemma is one of three talented and hard-working finalists in the Women in Construction category. As a finalist, Gemma was recognised as an outstanding woman in the Swansea Bay City Region’s construction sector. The judges were looking not only for excellence in leadership and management, but also an exemplar and champion for encouraging more women to pursue a career in what has been perceived as a male dominated industry. The award is sponsored by Pennant Homes, and the winner on the night was Charlotte Hale of SO Modular – a company that has hosted several Onsite Hub placements.

Gemma was shortlisted primarily for running the Swansea Bay Construction Support Group, a collaboration of diverse contractors committed to providing cost-effective training and development opportunities.  Every year, Gemma organises the awards evening to celebrate the achievements of apprentices in the industry and showcase the benefits of a career in the sector. This year, her event not only recognised hard work, but also raised more than £2,000 for local charity, Hands Up for Downs.

We wish to extend our heartfelt congratulations to Gemma for being shortlisted at this year’s awards.

Gemma Mineur, Training Manager and Finalist at the Swansea Bay Business Awards, said:

“Being shortlisted was a fantastic personal honour for me, and a recognition of the hard work put in by everyone involved in the training and the SBCSG awards night.  Those shortlisted in all of the categories are amazing, particularly in the Women in Construction category, and I feel very proud to be named amongst them as a fellow finalist.  I would like to give them all my sincerest congratulations.”
