Charmaine is excited to join Skills 4 as a non-executive director and looks forward to bringing her legal background and experience to the board. Charmaine is a solicitor providing legal and commercial advice to the Water, Ground & Environment division of Atkins, the largest engineering consultancy in the UK and one of the world’s leading design, engineering and project management consultancies. Charmaine has attended the Skills 4 Career Development Programme at Atkins and also the new Women’s Returners Programme, having recently returned from maternity leave. Charmaine has been inspired by her attendance at both programmes after seeing and experiencing first-hand how valuable the courses are in delivering practical support for women’s career progression. Charmaine is keen to use her skills and experience to support the success of Skills 4 in promoting gender diversity in the workplace.
