As we celebrate our 50th year in business, we have hired our 2000th employee, Harpal Panesar, a Quantity Surveyor who has joined Robertson Civil Engineering.
Robertson Civil Engineering is one of 21 companies operating within the Robertson Group and directly employs 77 people across a mix of disciplines.
Speaking of her appointment Harpal said:
“I had been watching Robertson for a while because they have been working on some major projects, so when the position came up to work with them in Stirling, I jumped at the chance. I already feel like an important part of the team because I’ve been put straight onto two of the company’s high profile jobs in Edinburgh. My day to day role sees me focus on the commercial aspects of projects to make sure we’re on budget throughout the duration of the projects.
Robertson Group has grown into one of the most sustainable businesses within the infrastructure sector. I believe its success is down to its people. I can collaborate with and learn from many of them and that is a very exciting prospect.
Harpal was Educated at the University of Kingston and holds a degree in product design and an MSC in quantity surveying. She has worked in the south of England and up until recently was working on the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route, where she worked for one of the joint venture contractors.
Bill Robertson, CEO and executive chairman of the Robertson Group said:
We’ve had a great deal to celebrate this year already with it being our 50th year in business not to mention our record breaking financial results. To be able to say that we’ve made our 2,000th hire in 2016 makes me very proud indeed. Harpal has already asserted herself in the firm and is considered an important part of the civil engineering team. I’m looking forward to seeing her career develop with us.
