Katherine Jackson, Technical Director

Katherine Jackson has worked in the engineering industry for almost 30 years, specialising in electrical engineering in the energy sector.

Katherine has worked on a number of high profile projects across the globe, including a power station in the Philippines and a distribution masterplan in Ethiopia. Katherine is one of a growing number of female senior directors now working in the industry, but believes there needs to be improved visibility of women currently working in engineering.

Katherine said: “The industry offers fantastic opportunities for women, with a range of roles to suit all sorts of personalities and skills. When I started working in the sector, I would say that some of my colleagues had slightly outdated views, but I don’t think that’s a problem now. I hope that by increasing awareness of female engineers and the breadth of roles we do; we’ll inspire the next generation of women to embark on a career in the sector.”
