As our company continues to grow we see a number of development opportunities arise and take great pleasure in having fantastic people who have experienced very real career progression with us.

Living your potential- University of Ground Control

Amanda Fallan- Performance Director

After joining in 2004 as an Operations Assistant, I was able to not only fulfil the duties of my role but also expand on my tasks to demonstrate my potential. This was evident when I implemented the live reporting system and bettered communications between site staff and head office.

My appetite for progression was recognised when I was promoted into the role of Performance Director in 2011. Ground Control is continually backing me to further my skill set, highlighted by a General Management qualification via the University of Ground Control.

Expressing ambitions

Graham Bird- Contracts Director

I joined Ground Control in 2004 as a Contracts Manager and today I oversee a set of 6 managers and over 9000 sites in my position of Contracts Director. When joining Ground Control I had already held a number of management positions within the grounds maintenance sector working with clients such as Thames Water Utilities .

Upon joining Ground Control I had a clear goal to progress beyond my entry position, something the company encouraged me to do and helped me achieve through my promotion into the role of Contracts Director.

Technology and Ground Control

Sim Hassall- ICT Director

I joined Ground Control in 2010, attracted by how eager the organisation is to embrace new ideas and to implement the latest technological advancements into the maintenance industry. I have been able to work alongside my exceptionally talented colleagues in the ICT department to redevelop the Winter Maintenance operating system and had significant input to the formation of the Android mobile solution to 600+ field team workers.

Ground Control is unique in its willingness to adapt which is demonstrated by constantly looking for technological solutions to solve daily problems and increase customer satisfaction.

Groundsman to Director

Jay Hancocks- Contracts Director

After a long and enjoyable period of time working as a Groundsman at the Tower of London, I was promoted through a number of roles. This included Head Gardener at the National Maritime Museum, Contracts Manager for the South and Essex and then for London/Home Counties before becoming a Senior Contracts Manager and moving to Essex to manage the Anglian Water Contract.

My rise through the ranks into the role of Contracts Director reflects that a position at Ground Control is less of a job and more of a career.

Business and personal Growth

Heather Goddard- Senior Construction Coordinator

I joined the Construction team 8 years ago as Construction Coordinator which consisted of 5 members making up the construction department and providing support to a single Construction Manager. Since my first day at Ground Control through to my current position, the company has consistently pointed to the fact that the rewards are there for those that work hard which has reflected in my advancement.

My career has grown alongside the development of the company; I with me now manage a team of 5 over two offices and am responsible the for procurement and back office administration for the construction department.
